Motorola rumored to reveal phone with edge-to-edge screen, sans-bezel


Motorola has scheduled two press events this month and Bloomberg is reporting that one of the devices will feature an “edge-to-edge screen.” Both of the invites sent out to media hinted at a new display, so this latest reports sounds plausible.

On September 5th Motorola will hold an event with Verizon in New York. The invite said “Motorola. On Display” and we were expecting to see the Droid RAZR HD and Droid RAZR M. After that Motorola has an event with Intel on September 18th. The invite for the second event said “Let us take you to the edge.”

Bloomberg says the edge-to-edge display should come this week in New York, but we think the 2nd event in London is a more likely target. We have already seen the RAZR HD leak out several times, and the display has a bezel on all edges. Motorola’s first smartphone with an Intel processor is a little more mysterious, and no pictures have surfaced so far.

Either way, it is pretty exciting to hear that Motorola will “do away with the little bits of screen that aren’t screen.” Their Intel-powered device could also be the fastest Android phone we have ever seen if it uses the new dual-core 1.8 GHz Atom Z2580 chip with PowerVR SGX 544MP2 GPU and integrated LTE.

These devices will be Motorola’s first products since they were acquired by Google, so it will be interesting to see what changes were made, if any. Hopefully Google persuaded them to bury Motoblur and stick with the stock Android experience.

What do you hope Motorola will announce over the next couple of weeks?
