The smartphone world has evolved drastically in the last couple of months and while we could have never expected an all-screen smartphone to be a reality around 2012/14, here we are with the iPhone X, that has gone completely bezel-less in 2017.
Bezel-less screens have become somewhat of a benchmark these days irrespective of the segment recent launches are made in, apart from the entry-level handsets. However, the likes of iPhone X and Samsung Galaxy 8 Plus are not everyone’s cup of tea, and keeping this in mind, several smartphone makers have launched their respective flagship killers to let users enjoy all the high-end features at a budget, and also emerging as best budget smartphones with bezel-less screens.
These said flagship killers not only offering bezel-less displays but also comes with some of the high performing chipsets to power the whole device, making them more VFM products as compared to the premium flagships.
Courtesy to brands like OnePlus, Oppo, Vivo, and India’s very own Micromax, buyers looking for best budget smartphones with bezel-less screens can now buy such devices with a price tag ranging from Rs 10,000-35000.
While Xiaomi, the biggest smartphone maker by market share, along with Samsung, in India is yet to come up with such a device, the upcoming Redmi 5 being the first one with a bezel-less display from Xiaomi’s stable, there are still a lot of options that you can choose from, according to your needs and purchasing power.
On that note, here are some of the best budget smartphones which feature edge-to-edge display and 18:9 aspect ratio, making them a perfect companion for multimedia consumption.
