A bezel is a frame itself and is the portion which is not covered by the screen — for example, TV and smartphones. We have been seeing from many years that the TV, computer monitor and smartphones used to have large bezels around them. But as time flew, the bezel too started to shave. If this continues then a time will come when bezel will be a thing of past in the smartphones industry.

From few days, bezel-less smartphones have become the talking point between the manufacturers and the customers. Because of bezel-less smartphones, the screen-to-body ratio is increasing.
