Great news for those of us who “hate” frames that constrain the overall size of the screen. One of the insiders most reliable of all the internet has spoken and what has been released has fallen like a bomb: iceuniverse just confirmed, as already predicted on February 25, which the next iPhone 15 Pro Max will have almost invisible bezels. The thinnest frames ever made for a mobile phone.
According to the data released, its measurements will have a lower height, width and thickness in the protrusion of the rear camera, preserving the usual diagonal. For comparison, the current iPhone 14 Pro Max has a module with a total thickness of 4.8 millimeters. The iPhone 15 Pro Max would mount a 3.59-millimeter module. for his partthe black frame would go from 2.17 mm to just 1.55 mm, far surpassing the record held by Xiaomi in its Xiaomi 13, with a 1.81 mm bezel.
The Xiaomi 13 holds the current record
Annihilating the frames on the screen has been a maxim of the smartphones of this decade. Screens without frames but with “island” or perforated front camera, all-screen alternatives, with overflow or curves. Different solutions in order to stand up to this conceptual challenge: the frame conveys a certain sensation of cloistering the image.
The current reign in this aspect is preserved by the Xiaomi 13, a very balanced terminal, although it remains in the shadow of the Pro model or that Xiaomi 13 Ultra that goes a step further in innovation. The Samsung Galaxy Ultra S23, for example, falls far behind with its 1.95mm thick bezels. Minimal frames, in any case, but that we have in front of our eyes at all times.
As for the new generation of iPhone, on occasion we have echoed rumors and leaks that point to an important change in design: more rounded corners and thinner bezels compared to the iPhone 14 Pro and -the alleged Phone 15 Ultra would go even further. But what we couldn’t imagine was to exceed the current limit and set a unique record.
Of course, we are talking in any case about the Pro Max model or even an alleged iPhone 15 Ultra that would not only have fewer frames, but would also advocate an advanced screen that is somewhat brighter than the current standard. And all according to the statements of IceUniverse, the well-known and reliable leaker, Renowned for its successes precisely with Samsung and Xiaomi.
However, beyond the screen, that thinner camera protrusion is striking, something that collides head-on with other rumors that point in the opposite direction. We are talking about efficiency in design, in any case. After all, those 3.6 mm would leave less room for action for Apple and, knowing the tough competition it faces, It is surprising that in Cupertino they bet on a more contained module.
