The screen adds to the beauty of the device, as it sports a tri-bezel-less screen with no top notch. Nevertheless, it has a physical home button that doubles as a fingerprint sensor at the bottom bezel. There ate extremely tiny top bezels, it is almost invisible except you look closely.

The 6-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen is stunning, with a resolution of 2160×1080 pixels. Every details on the screen would be popping thanks to 401.82 pixel per inch density. Koolnee got to a 78% screen to body ratio with the K1 Trio. Both the back and front are covered in glass, the front is protected with a 2.5D Curved Glass Screen.
