iPhone 6 to feature bezel-less screen?

Updated

An upcoming iPhone could feature a display with no bezel, according to The Korea Herald. A source said Apple is testing a prototype iPhone with a bezel-less screen that incorporates a fingerprint scanner, though there are still issues with mass-manufacturing the scanning component. The report notes the next iPhone is rumored to have a bigger display, as has been reported, though bezel-less screens might be overly “vulnerable to external impact” when mishandled. It’s been speculated Apple could use sapphire in its next phone’s display to reduce scratching, while other materials and design elements might provide the necessary shatter protection for the screen.
