According to a Weibo tipster, Huawei is reportedly working on a bezel-less “floating display” laptop with a 3K panel, offering a “more immersive viewing experience.” Does this mean that Black Mirror-esque bezel-less laptops are here to stay?
Arjun Krishna Lal,

A report from Weibo tipster “Changan Digital King” claims that Huawei is working on a bezel-less laptop with a 3K “floating display.” The tipster stated that the laptop would feature a “no metal frame design,” which implies that it’ll lack a bezel, at least on three sides. 

As of now, even supposedly bezel-free laptop tech, like Dell’s “Infinity Edge” panels found in its XPS lineup, have bezels, just thinner than those on conventional laptops. The Changan Digital King report indicates that we’re looking at a paradigm shift here. Huawei’s new laptop might look a lot like the truly bezel-free devices seen in near-future sci-fi programs like Black Mirror. 

While it’ll be interesting to see exactly what a bezel-free 3K laptop looks like, the rumor raises some important questions. For starters, as a Huawei device, especially in light of sanctions and a range of other issues, what will availability outside China be like?

Also, as Samsung learned the hard way with the Galaxy Fold’s launch disaster, what will durability be like when you take the bezel out of the equation?
