As edge-to-edge displays increasingly go from being the “highlight” to the norm, it is obvious that the number of budget bezel-less smartphones will increase - and not due to new models, but due to “dive flagships ”, which are losing value due to obsolescence. However, you should not postpone the purchase "for later" in order to have more choice - there are already very worthy models on the market.
