MWC 2016: First photos of the ‘bezel-less’ Ulefone Future


Ulefone’s been talking about the Future for a while. The company is naturally kicked about getting this phone on the market thanks to it having near-zero bezel.

Ulefone is using that fact to promote the phone as a ‘bezel-less’ one. While we’ve hardly had a chance to see the phone in its full glory in the past, we can thankfully gawk at these pictures of the Future that Andi took today at MWC.

Ulefone Future: How bezel-less?

While most such claims in the past have been a sham, Ulefone seem to have actually put some engineering in to making the Future as bezel-less as possible.

A little narrow black line on the edges can be noticed, but that doesn’t seem like too bad a start for 2016.

We should probably expect some more bezel-less phones — perhaps from larger brands — later this year. As for the Ulefone Future, it should hit the market very soon. It isn’t just the bezels (or the lack of them) that the Future is interesting for; the phone is also one of the first ‘export brand’ Chinese devices to have a fingerprint sensor on the edge.

    On screen buttons are absolutely disgusting, the design is ugly, but the fingerprint placement is spot on.

      ulefone i believe mentioned that the onscreen would be removed on the final product

    Too little side bezels IMO is a problem too, when you hold your phone one handed your palm touches the narrow bezeled sides and triggers the touch making it very annoying.

    Seems like they hid the bezel under a rounded glass edge.

    Too cheap quality, look at the volume rocker, it is very very loose, and that camera outer shell, too outdated and worst of a design.

    Build quality looks a little kak, and the squar look of the camera cover looks a bit back in the day to me… But I really do like what they’re doing with the screen!

    Gionee claimed today that the S8 is 74.9mm wide, don’t remember the size of the screen here, if it’s the same 5.5 inch but if it is, lets see if they beat that.

    This is a BETA version, it’s possible to look cheap… I hope the release version will be better.

      you need to stop being so reasonable/ clear minded/ rational in your assesment of this article, enough is enough

    Seems like 2 different designers designed this phone. Let’s hope they had fired the one responsible of the back.

    A little plain. Definitely not the future if it’s some old SoC and low other specs.
