iPhone 15 Pro Max rumored to have thinnest bezels in smartphone history [U: Suppliers developing bezelless panels]

The iPhone 15 Pro Max is one of the most highly anticipated smartphones of the year, and recent rumors have shed light on some of its potential features and design. One of the most exciting rumors is that the front display of the iPhone 15 Pro Max will feature thin bezels measuring only 1.55mm (0.06 inches). This would make them the thinnest bezels in any smartphone ever made.

[Update; July 19, 2023: According to The Elec, Apple has requested its suppliers, Samsung and LG Display, to develop bezel-less OLED display panels for future iPhone models while maintaining the current design. They aim to avoid curved displays, which some other brands offer, due to concerns about optical distortion and durability. The bezel-less displays are intended to enable improved thin film encapsulation and under-panel camera technology, as well as provide more space for components like antennas and reduce interference]

iPhone 15 Pro Max: The Thinnest Bezels Yet in a Smartphone?

This rumor comes from the well-known leaker “Ice Universe,” who claims to have seen CAD drawings of the iPhone 15 Pro Max. While the phone may be thicker than its predecessor, the iPhone 14 Pro Max, it is rumored to have a slightly smaller camera bump.

iPhone 15 Pro Max will break the record of 1.81mm bezel black edge held by Xiaomi 13, and we measure that its cover plate black bezel width is only 1.55 mm.(S22 and S23 ≈1.95mm,iPhone 14 Pro 2.17mm)

It’s worth noting that the rumors about the iPhone 15 Pro Max’s bezel size are specific to that model, and it’s unclear whether the iPhone 15 Pro will have the same bezel size. However, it has also been suggested that the iPhone 15 Pro will have thinner bezels than its predecessors, which would be in line with Apple’s recent trend towards increasingly thin bezels.

In addition to the thin bezel, the rumored iPhone 15 Pro Max screen has been described as “very beautiful” and features curved edges similar to the Apple Watch. While it’s unclear what this means in practical terms, it’s likely that the curved edges will add to the phone’s sleek and modern aesthetic.

Overall, the rumors about the iPhone 15 Pro Max have generated a lot of excitement and anticipation among Apple fans and tech enthusiasts. While nothing is certain until the official release, these rumors suggest that Apple is continuing to push the boundaries of smartphone design and innovation.

It’s worth noting that rumors can sometimes be inaccurate, and it’s important to take them with a grain of salt. However, Ice Universe has a track record of accurately predicting features of upcoming smartphones, so there may be some truth to the rumors about the iPhone 15 Pro Max.

Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 15 Pro Max in the fall of 2023, along with other new products and updates. Until then, fans and tech enthusiasts will have to wait and see what Apple has in store for its flagship smartphone.
