Xiaomi showcases portless smartphone with quad-curved display

Xiaomi has showcased a new concept smartphone boasting a four-sided curved display with no buttons or ports.

"Pushing the limits of the classic smartphone form-factor, Xiaomi engineers tried to make the smartphone as simple as possible and bring the 'just a screen' form-factor a step closer to life," the company stated in a blog post about the concept.

The smartphone's "quad-curved waterfall display" drops around the top, bottom, left, and right sides of the smartphone at an angle of 88 degrees, covering almost the entire frame with screen.

Gauranteed they will be making that in the near future. Xiaomi are making massive strides in closing the gap between the current "big 3". Anything to get the lead in the market, they will find a way to produce it.

The Chinese copying the Chinese now? Lol.

It was only a matter of time until a brand attempted a completely minimalist phone with nothing but the useful bits—screen and camera. All other distractions removed. That’s exactly what the Meizu Zero is: a smartphone with no buttons, no charging ports, no speakers, not even a SIM card slot.

I wish they would stop with the curved displays. It serves no purpose other than distorting text / images at the edges and causes issues with palm rejection.

Almost there... number 5 and climbing. I always support the underdog. Had the the Mate 8 and they are definitely a force to be reckoned with.

It seems like a pointless gimmick to me.

Beautiful design that will end up in a neon-green silicone phone cover from Eden Tech and a R99 Takealot screen protector..
