A recent tweet from the reputable leaker "Ice Universe" has provided new information about the upcoming iPhone 15 Pro Max. According to the tweet, the device will feature the thinnest bezels of any smartphone, breaking the record currently held by the Xiaomi 13.
The tweet from Ice Universe suggests that the black bezel width on the iPhone 15 Pro Max will be just 1.55mm, compared to the Xiaomi 13's record of 1.81mm. This is significantly thinner than the bezels on the iPhone 14 Pro (2.17mm) and the Samsung Galaxy Ultra S23 (1.95mm).

The report also states that the iPhone 15 Pro Max will be buttonless, featuring touch-sensitive controls instead of physical buttons on the sides of the device. The device is also rumored to feature a slightly curved edge around the display, similar to the iPhone 11 series, and a titanium frame instead of stainless steel.
In addition to the bezels and buttonless design, Ice Universe has previously shared CAD renders and dimensions that suggest the iPhone 15 Pro Max will feature a thinner camera bump and smaller footprint. All four iPhone 15 models are expected to feature slightly curved bezels, but only the 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Pro Max is expected to have the thinnest bezels.
The iPhone 15 lineup is also expected to feature the same display sizes as the previous year's lineup, but with thinner bezels, providing a larger screen area and a more immersive viewing experience. Apple is expected to announce its next iPhone lineup in September, as usual.
While these rumors should be taken with a grain of salt, Ice Universe has a history of accurately predicting Apple's plans. The reported features of the iPhone 15 Pro Max, including the thinnest bezels on any smartphone, will be of great interest to consumers and could make the device a major selling point for Apple. We will have to wait for an official announcement from Apple to confirm these rumors.
