LG Display unveiled a new full-HD smartphone display with 0.7 mm bezels, narrower than the thickness of a credit card, taking one step forward in competition for a high-resolution display with a virtually non-existent bezel.
LG Display announced on Oct. 30 that it has successfully developed a 5.3 inch, 1080p LCD display with 0.7 mm bezels using “Neo Edge” module processing and “advanced in-cell touch” tech. It means that the panel's circuit board and backlight are glued together instead of taped, and that the touch panel is embedded into the LCD module. It is optimized for smartphones with large screens.
As a result, the Korean company has set a new record in full-HD LCDs by decreasing the width of bezels to an unprecedented 0.7 mm, thinner than the 1.2 mm or 0.9 mm showcased by Japan Display Inc. in 2013 and in 2014, respectively.
The world's largest LCD panel maker is going to mass produce this product in November and to supply the new smartphone display to the Chinese market, where there is a great demand for large smartphones.
