Although Apple plans to start using OLED screens next year, it may take a long time for OLED to completely replace the LCD panel, which is one of the most important factors in the thickness of the screen. Recently, the world's leading LCD panel maker, JDI, has just released a brand new High-definition LCD display, allowing the company's full active technology to almost completely disappear from the screen, even at the bottom.
In recent years, many LCD panel manufacturers have used the method of moving various touch elements to the bottom of the screen to try to reduce the screen box, while the JDI solution is to change the idea, not to transfer the location of the components, but to further reduce their volume.
With a new line layout and encapsulation technology, JDI can make the bottom border thickness almost the same as the other three-frame thickness. This means that, theoretically, the smartphone's fuselage can be completely covered with a display. In practice, of course, because smartphones also add components such as speakers, cameras, and home keys, it is unlikely that the screen will be completely covered. However, this technology can still further reduce the thickness of the screen border.
JDI plans to start mass production of this brand new display from the end of next March, so it will take more than half the time to see smartphones that are useful for this kind of screen. It's not just smartphones, it's possible for us to see a real borderless design in the future.
