How big is your bezel? If you've got something like Motorola's “edge-to-edge” RAZR i, it's pretty small, but AU Optronics' new 4.46in touch panel display has just trumped that.
It has what's claimed to be the world's narrowest border measuring at just 1mm thick when the touch panel is placed on the module surface.
That's thanks to what the company's calls its proprietary “super narrow border technology” and its low-temperature poly-silicon (LTPS) process.
The result, to go for a more everyday expression, is certainly likely to be eye-popping visuals, but no matter how much of the front of your mobile device the screen fills, quality is of paramount importance, and AUO says it's working on AMOLED, IGZO (indium gallium zinc oxide) and AHVA (Advanced Hyper-Viewing Angle) technologies using its border-busting methods and solutions.
“As portable smart devices become prevalent and the size of mobile displays grow larger, audio-video entertainment, interactive games and content downloading have emerged at the top of consumers' demand list,” said AUO vice-president TK Wu in a press release to announce the display.
“AUO proactively develops the latest technologies including AMOLED and IGZO and excels by introducing ultra high resolution, ultra wide viewing angle and super narrow border technologies.
“Mobile devices in the future will become lighter and smaller, colour and image quality will also be all the more impressive, offering customers even more innovative solutions to choose from.”
That's why we keep coming back for more, TK...
