AU Optronics unveiled what is claims is the world’s narrowest border on a 4.46-inch cell phone and touch panel integration technology. The company’s proprietary super narrow border technology and low temperature poly-silicon (LTPS) method are applied to reduce the border width to just 1mm when touch panel is placed on the module surface. As a result, the screen appears in its largest at the phone’s display area, making for an impressive appearance.
In addition, AMOLED, IGZO (indium gallium zinc oxide) and AHVA (Advanced Hyper-Viewing Angle) technologies are being developed by AUO to “constantly drive the trends for ultra high resolution, ultra wide viewing angle and super narrow border technologies.”
I know what you want to ask – when will this be available in smartphones you can buy? We’ve no idea, but we’ll make sure you’re the first to know once that happens. Stay tuned…
