Think merely heavyweights like Samsung and LG can create smartphones with nearly no bezel? A new Chinese company called Maze Mobile is set to challenge that notion, with an upcoming smartphone that’s pretty much all screen on the front.
All that’s officially known about the Maze Alpha right now is a landing page on the company website, which shows that the phone has a dual camera on the back.
And a very small image on the website likewise shows the bottom of the phone it appears that it will be very similar to Xiaomi’s Mi Mix, with very slim bezels on top and on the sides, but a larger bezel below the screen hosting a home button and the front camera.
A leaked determined of specs, courtesy of prolific leaker Evan Blass, says the device will be quite powerful, with a 6-inch full HD screen, an octa-core chip, 4 or 6GB of RAM and 64/128 GB of storage. Those cameras on the back will have a Sony signature, and one of them will have a 13 -megapixel sensor. The phone will run on Android Nougat.

While those specs( if real) are nothing to scoff at, the phone’s most important feature will likely be the cost. Maze already has a product on the market, a far more conventional affair called the Maze Blade. But that phone which has a 5.5 -inch screen, an octa-core chip, a 13 -megapixel camera and a fingerprint sensor currently expenses merely $139.99. If Maze prices the Alpha nearly as affordably as the Blade, it could be a game-changer, especially in regions like India.
Maze Mobile has actually been around since 2012, but it started as an OEM manufacturer. Now the company boastings more than 850 employees and a research and growth squad with more than 80 engineers.
There’s no precise launching date for the Alpha, and there’s no term on accessibility outside of China. The company’s other phone, the Blade, is available from a number of retail sites, such as GearBest and Igogo.es.
