First leaked last week, Maze Mobile has confirmed that the Alpha will be a 6-inch FHD smartphone with extremely narrow bezels on three of its four sides. Launch prices and dates remain unknown.

Border-free designs may already be trickling down to more mainstream smartphones. We already know that major manufacturers have been marketing narrow borders for many flagship models including the Xiaomi Mi Mix, LG G6, and the Samsung Galaxy S8. The iPhone 7 successor will likely feature extra-narrow bezels as well according to rumors. Now, smaller Chinese manufacturers are beginning to incorporate similar design features.

Manufacturer Maze Mobile has unveiled an almost border-free smartphone called the Alpha that was also recently leaked by Evan Blass earlier in the month. So far, the short teaser on Facebook claims it to be a 6-inch FHD smartphone with 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage space, 4000 mAh internal battery, and an unspecified octa-core SoC. The rear 13 MP camera will be a Sony sensor alongside another unspecified sensor for potential dual camera capabilities. The official specifications match closely to those leaked by Blass.

A second SKU is also in the works with only 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage space.

It remains to be seen how much the smartphone will cost or when we can expect it to launch. Maze Mobile is not known for high-end devices as its current Maze Blade smartphone retails for just $130 USD. Sharp was the last manufacturer to launch a budget-mainstream smartphone with razor-thin bezels.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
