The patent drawings show the display coming right up to the edge of the phone with a small cutout to leave room for the front camera, earpiece and assorted sensors. The cutout doesn’t seems as extreme as Essential’s or even the iPhone’s.

    Coming soon to a cellular store near you; the phone you can't hold anywhere without touching multiple control surfaces! Good luck doing anything! Want to hand your phone to someone else while the screen is on? Too bad; you can't! As soon as they touch it, they've hit a control and changed the screen.

    actually that is already happening with my note 5. I am all the time, opening something or closing something when picking up the phone when on :) almost as bad as changing watch face on my watch when crossing my arms.
