Sure they house buttons, sensors, volume rockers and whatnot, and allow users a better grip on the device. But a new patent (WO2014/029906A1) reveals that the company is looking to change this, allowing bezels to become active and include a series of feature. However, specific actions will need to be performed to make activate the bezels, and they can also be configured to stay active for only a period of time. The patent makes it clear that the device could also be configured to offer visual or haptic feedback of the bezel become active.
