Elephone R9 flagship smartphone to feature super narrow bezel

Elephone is slowly but continuously spilling the beans about the much-awaited Elephone R9 smartphone. After releasing a significant detail that the smartphone would have a 13MP camera, the company has let slip another important detail about its design. Elephone has confirmed that unlike the rumors, the Elephone R9 will have narrow bezels of 0.6 mm.

Explaining the reason of opting narrow bezels rather than going completely bezel-less, the Chinese smartphone maker says that it bezel design enhances users hand handling the experience. The company said to have conducted a market research which found out that screen-to-body ratio on a big bezel phone was not high, and people tend to touch the edge frequently, which makes it less comforting. The Elephone R9 will offer both handheld and visual experience.
