Digitimes has reported that Japan Display will start offering bezel-less LCD displays by 2017. This along with a new flexible LCD technology will be the company?s main offering to combat the AMOLED display.
In the past, Japan Display has played a major part in the LCD manufacturing industry. However, the increasing demand for AMOLED display means that the LCD is being left behind. Instead of investing on new infrastructure for AMOLED manufacturing, Japan Display bolstered its efforts in improving the LCD display. In fact, the company is now in the position to offer the new bezel-less as well as flexible LCD displays.
Having an almost bezel-free iPhone 7s or 7s Plus will definitely catch on with a lot of Apple fans. For years, countless 3D renderings have surfaced on the internet on what people would want their iPhone to be. Nevertheless, most of these renders share something in common, they all want a bezel-less iPhone.
Since the iPhone 8 is already rumored to have a curved screen, having a bezel-free iPhone 7s sounds just about right. Perhaps Apple will indeed grace the slightly cheaper iPhones with such display. Nevertheless, for those who can really afford it, you could probably opt for the iPhone 8 when it comes out next year.
