LG Display develops screen for smartphones with 0.7mm bezel

LG logoLG Display has developed a new display for smartphones, one which has an extremely thin bezel. The 5.3-inch Full HD-resolution display has a thin 0.7mm bezel on the left and right-hand sides, allowing for smartphones using the display to have a narrower gap between the edges of the screen and the outer edges of the mobile device, similar to the Sharp Aquos Crystal.

The company claims it has managed to narrow the bezel down using "Neo Edge" module processing and "Advanced In-Cell Touch" (AIT) technology. Neo Edge uses adhesives instead of double-sided tape for sealing the edges of the circuit board, backlight unit, and the panel itself, eliminating the need for a bulky plastic guide panel, as well as preventing light leakage. The technique also promises to make the panel water and dust-proof, reduces the corrosion that occasionally occurs when tape is used, and offers increased elasticity.

AIT, also created by LG Display, further reduces the need for bezel space by embedding the touch panel inside the LCD module. Aside from saving space, the technology could also help reduce the cost of the panels, by eliminating a separate manufacturing process for adding touch-related elements.

Smartphones with the new display may hit the open market sooner rather than later, as LG Display is starting mass production of the screens in November, with Chinese manufacturers being the first to receive stock of the component.
