Doogee built a truly bezel-and-notch-free phone with a clever sliding design

Doogee has built a name for itself the last few years thanks to super-cheap smartphones with thin bezels. But while previous designs have been rather uninspired, an upcoming model, the Mix 4, actually looks pretty sweet. Instead of hiding cameras, sensors, and speakers in a thin bezel or notch, the Mix 4 hides them using a sliding mechanism. It’s the 90s all over again.

A video by YouTuber Mrwhosetheboss shows off a dummy prototype with a 6-inch screen, provided to him by the company. And it truly is all-screen: because of the lack of a notch or bezel, the screen-to-body-ratio is a whopping 97 percent. For reference, the iPhone X has a screen-to-body ratio of approximate 83 percent, while the Galaxy S9 is 84.2 percent.
