Ulefone gets zero bezels right! Leaked images of next phone


ulefone future helio p10

We’ve seen lots of phones promise to have narrow or even zero bezel designs but very few lived up to their claims. Ulefone seem to be getting it right for their next flagship with Helio P10 and zero bezel design.

We don’t know what this phone is called, but we do know it’s from Ulefone and that it will sport the Mediatek Helio P10 chipset and has a near bezel less design.

Since last year Chinese phone maker have promised phones with bezels like those in the image, but only Oppo and Vivo managed it with their high priced premium devices. 2016 is set to change all this though with this mystery Ulefone phone, and also the Elephone P9000 (which also has a Helio P10).

We suppose that this Ulefone will be a flagship and as such will have hardware that meets the demands of flagship phone buyers. If we had to guess then 3-4GB RAM, Sony IMX230 rear camera and some sort of fingerprint scanner.

We have reached out to Ulefone for more details of this mystery phone and will let you know if we learn anything.

    Impressive.. I’m not digging the “edges” though. I kept touching my galaxy edge accidentally because of the edges being curved. At least this is progress on the bezelless designs! A good start to 2016

    that glare looks just like the one already seen in other fake pictures.
    probably to hide some cheap photoshop work.

      Don’t be so cynical! lol Nice to see some of the smaller manufacturers try their hand at bezeless designs, but as usual wait till it launches to see if they really have managed it.

        Don’t get me wrong, I like ulefone and I’ll be happy if they make a bezelless phone.
        I was referring to this “leak” which stinks like a cheap Photoshop job

          I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Chinese manufacturer not use bad Photoshopped images of a ‘leaked’ device, hence why I said we’ll have to wait till its launched but I do like where Ulefone are heading these days.

            I guess we will see.
            Speaking of Ulefone they are the only small Chinese company I keep an eye on.
            In my opinion they are even better than Jiayu (praised by many here on Gizchina)

              do you feel Ulefone is better than Umi? I’ve owned neither, but was leaning towards Umi

            • MaxPower
              January 11, 2016

              Umi is good too, probably at the same level of Ulefone.
              I would give Ulefone an extra point for hardware and an extra point to Umi for software.

              I just like Ulefone better, but that’s just my personal opinion.

              I do not think Umi good, because it’s Rome, Rome deceive a lot of people, especially if you see this video.

              I would say yes. Much better. In terms of manufacturing quality and support, upgrades as well. Look at the comparison between Umi Rome and Ulefone Paris on YT.

              January 11, 2016

              To be honest Jiayu are irrelevant in the market today and if the news of their 2 phones for this year are accurate then doubt we will be seeing them next year. Ulefone on the other hand seem to be in a rich vein of form in the lower of the market at the moment.

      Haha, why would you think is a PS job, why always have to suspect all the good things? I think you are a skeptic, it makes you unhappy ah.

      • MaxPower
        January 11, 2016

        Who said I’m unhappy?
        I’m more than happy and still keep being doubtful and question everything because doubt is the fuel of progress.

        Without doubting we would probably still in the middle ages.
        Keep believing that the earth is flat, if that makes you happy.

    Want to experience bezelless at affordable price. Samsung Galaxy Edge is too expensive for most people.

    It’s a good sign that small company is trying something different, not just making fake iPhones.

    Getting the bezels right means all 4 not just half.
    They are getting the bezels very wrong, you are better off with 1-2mm on the side and much smaller bezels on the vertical. Both in hand and in the pocket.

    still not seeing the point of zero side bezel. how’s about instead of a race to zero bezel, we have a race to killer battery life and waterproof/shatterproofing

      That would be much much more worth it, even more interesting and completely more usefull

    Stable OS ,software support and great performance over bezelless designs

  13. xteamchinax
    January 11, 2016

    How about focusing on way smaller chins and top bezels, especially if using onscreen menu navy buttons. Unless you are placing dual front facing speakers or front fingerprint scanner, why the huge chins? Come on! Reduce! Innovate! #please

    My Be Pro, which is about 11 months old is dying. It now randomly shuts off and the only way to turn it back on is to take out the battery and reset it.

    No support from Ulefone for the Be Pro since August last year so I will not be buying anymore phones from them.

      sorry to hear but this is the case for betouch/be pro users, paris users and unwards are having the time of their lives from ulefone with constant updates/support

    All these cheap companies can`t compete anymore, because Xiaomi and Huawei have much better devices with the same hardware at the same price, so why would anyone actually consider getting Elephone/Ulephone/Doogee/Umi??
    I guess the only answer would be, because they are feeling adventurous or on it`s just the design alone.

    • Assefa Hanson
      January 11, 2016

      so damn true just like back in the day huawei was a nobody they should have never tried to compete because xiaomi,vivo had much better devices, letv shouldnt have tried either for 2015 ,all small/cheap companies should just throw in the towel no need for competition and innovation 🙂

      • Steven Fox
        January 11, 2016

        Don`t see what innovations Elephone/Ulephone/Umi/Doogee are making, they basically just copy everything that the big boys do, and lie to their customers about hardware specs and release dates.
        How is this actually bettering the market? I think it`s simply flooding it.

      They have 2 similar models. I find my self I don’t need such a thing so I call for “I COULDN’T CARE LESS ABOUT IT” Monday’s.

  17. January 11, 2016

    Why all the bezel(less) fetish?

    • Stef
      January 11, 2016

      I don’t know about others, to me it’s about making the phone easier to handle one-handed (provided it also includes decent palm rejection tech), which is a must for smartphone use.

  18. dutchgio

    They always get a bezelless design right on a render.
    Once the phone comes out its suddenly a bit different…
