Samsung was presumably gambling, when it introduced the bezel-less Infinity Display in its Galaxy S8 flagship model. Every now and then, companies like to play with the hardware and software of their handsets, so that they can make something revolutionary. Samsung did the same when it came up with the concept of Infinity Display this year, and it would be safe to say that a phone that had minimal bezels and offered a premium viewing experience, was very much appreciated by the users. Taking inspiration from S8, other manufacturers have also started to minimize the bezel around the phone’s screen.
Rumors about Apple’s next iteration of iPhone, that would feature a bezel-less display, has been pretty much making rounds of the internet lately. And with all the leaks that have been pouring in, iPhone 8 might be the most intensively leaked iPhone ever. Apple even gave away some of the biggest revelations about its upcoming iPhone, when it accidently pushed the firmware update for Homepod.
And now, renowned leakster Evan Blass has given us all a pretty good view of how the front of the iPhone 8 might look like. The high resolution photo which features the iPhone in a big Urban Armour Gear case, shows the upcoming smartphone sporting an all-screen-minimal-bezel display. As rumored, the phone doesn’t show the presence of the physical home button. So it might be possible that the phone might feature an under the screen fingerprint scanner, or ditch it for a facial scanner.

If we talk about the case in the photo, UAG might have made that case as a prototype based on the leaked info, ahead of the official launch. With the iPhone 8 scheduled to launch this year, leaks and rumors like this point to one thing- that the manufacturers are surely trying to keep up with the new-bezel less display game.
