On July 29, Oppo posted a series of pictures to its official Twitter account of a smartphone prototype featuring "Waterfall Screen" technology, a design that makes the left and right bezels disappear.

Less than a week after notable tech leaker Ice Universe published images of the upcoming Vivo Nex 3's display, designed to produce a screen-to-body ratio over 100%, Oppo posted pictures of a functioning prototype smartphone with similarly curved edges and virtually no bezels.

The company refers to this innovation as "Waterfall Screen" technology; the left and right sides of the device's display curve back nearly 90° so that the bezels are not visible from the front.

Oppo neglected to offer any more details about the prototype or when we can expect to see this technology implemented into a commercial device. However, considering that Vivo's Nex 3 appears to utilise a similar design and technology and is rumoured to launch in 2019, Oppo's iteration likely won't be far behind. – AFP Relaxnews
