Our phones keep getting bigger and bigger, almost too big, and now companies like Samsung and LG have a solution. Make the screens bigger while slimming down the bezels and black bars around it, to keep the phones relatively the same size.
This is what enabled Samsung to use a massive 6.2-inch Quad-HD screen in the Galaxy S8+, which is almost the exact same size as the 5.5-inch Google Pixel XL. The benefits are clearly visible, even if the aspect ratio is a little different from past years.
While we don't think Google will offer two completely different designs like in 2015 with the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, it's certainly possible. That's because HTC and LG are rumored to be building the 2017 Nexus phones. If so we may get a 5.6-inch Google Pixel created by HTC, and an even bigger LG-made Google Pixel XL 2 with an edge-to-edge display.
Basically, take a look at the LG G6 and combine that sleek style and big screen with the Google Pixel XL, and that's what many expect to see later this year, only bigger. We don't need a curved display like the Galaxy S8, but a big screen with small bezels certainly wouldn't hurt Google's chances.
