When Apple released the iPhone X in 2017, it described it as “a stunning all-screen display.” However, this was not entirely true. Not only did it have a notch at the top for the camera and sensors, it also had a fairly large bezel that ran around the entire display. Over the years, Apple has been working to reduce the size of that bezel, and according to a new report, the iPhone 15 Ultra will have the thinnest bezel of any phone.
Noted Android leaker Ice Universe claims on Twitter that the iPhone 15 Ultra will “break the 1.81mm black bezel edge record set by Xiaomi 13.” The Xiaomi 13 was released in December and has a stunning 93% screen-to-body ratio, a figure that takes into account bezels and camera cutouts. By comparison, according to GSMArena, the iPhone 14 Pro Max has an 88 percent ratio, while the iPhone 14 has an 86 percent ratio.
The leak claims that the iPhone 15 Ultra bezel will be 1.55mm thick, which is significantly thinner than the 2.17mm bezel on the iPhone 14 Pro Max and the 2.42mm bezel on the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
The iPhone 15 Ultra is expected to have a sleeker design than the rest of the iPhone 15 lineup, with a titanium frame, curved edges, and a smaller camera bump. It’s also likely to be the most expensive phone Apple has ever made, with a possible starting price of $1,299.
