The holy grail of phone design, i.e. bezel less has been out of our grasp for years, but as design and manufacture catches the imaginations of designers the dream is getting closer to becoming a reality.
If these press images can be believed then the Otium U5 has the narrowest bezels of any Android smartphone from a Chinese phone manufacturer, it also appears to have taken a hell of a lot of inspiration from the Sharp Aquos Crystal.
Shown in silver and black colour options on the Otium Facebook page, the phone won’t be a high-priced flagship but more an entry-level smartphone. Specs include a 5.5-inch qHD, laminated,OGS display made from Dragontail glass for a little added bump protection. The SoC is a quad-core MT6582 and there is no LTE support (3G: WCDMA 2100/850 (HSDPA), 2G: GSM 850/900/1800/1900 MHz).
Still the design is pretty nice and if the price is right the Otium U5 is sure to attract some fans.
What do you think of this near bezel less budget phone?
