ZTE Iceberg concept features glass corners and not one but two notches

ZTE may be on the verge of unveiling a concept phone that has not one but two notches.

Renders of the handset, called Iceberg, have been published by WinFuture, and show a rather striking mobile with an ultra-slim bezel and a notch at the top and at the bottom of its screen.

Notches became a big talking point after the launch of the Essential Phone and iPhone X last year and, despite lots of negative sentiment, it appears they’re not going away anytime soon. It appears to be coming to the OnePlus 6 too.

In the Iceberg’s case, the twin notches allow the front side of the phone to be virtually all-screen. The top notch contains the front-facing camera, an ambient light sensor and an earpiece for phone calls, while the bottom notch incorporates a front-firing speaker.

Not content with the double notch as a talking point, the ZTE Iceberg pushes things even further by featuring clear, colourless and prominent clear glass corners too. They stick out beyond the screen’s curved corners, and make the phone more angular than it otherwise would be.

The handset also has a dual-camera setup around the back, a rear fingerprint sensor and a smart connector that would presumably be used for accessories.

It isn’t clear if the phone will ever be placed on general sale, but it’s certainly one that’s caught our eye.
