Less than a year ago, 18:9 narrow-bezel displays, or full-displays as they were called then, were limited only to high-end devices. The speed at which technology evolves and becomes affordable for the masses can be gauged from the fact that phones with such displays can now be purchased for less than Rs 10,000. Here’s a list of 5 phones with 18:9 displays and minimal bezels that you should consider if you are on a tight budget.
Redmi Note 5
The Redmi Note 5 is head and shoulders above every other phone in this list in terms of specifications and performance. It may also be the hardest to get your hands on courtesy of the flash sale gimmick. But what it brings to the table for an asking price of Rs 9999 is unmatched yet.
The Snapdragon 625 SoC might be over a year old but is still more than competent for phones in this budget. Couple that with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage and you will have enough juice to run most apps. Add to that a capable 12MP shooter at the back. But the most striking feature of this handset is its 6-inch full HD+ display with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels. The only phone in the list with a full HD+ screen. It runs Android Nougat out of the box but Oreo is expected to arrive soon.
