LG's latest smartphone display says goodbye to bezels LG Display has unveiled a new 5.3-inch 1080p LCD panel that offers the narrowest bezel the world has seen yet, at just 0.7mm thin.
The company notes that the bezels are even more narrow now than a credit card, and LGD says they had to use a "Neo Edge" module processing and also "Advanced In-Cell Touch" tech.

"With the growing trend for large screen smartphones, customer demand for displays with a narrow bezel is increasing, because it enables users to enjoy the maximum use of screen area without compromising excellent grip and design," added Byeong-koo Kim, Vice President and Head of IT/Mobile Development Group at LG Display. "With this innovative product having many advantages, ranging from its narrow 0.7mm bezel and high resolution picture quality to its slim design and touch-embedded solutions, LG Display will continue to lead the growing market for large screen smartphones, meeting the expectations of customers and users by enhancing the quality of devices."

LG explains that their "Neo Edge" tech "uses an adhesive instead of double-sided tape to attach and completely seal the total area and edges of the panel's circuit board and backlight unit. Because there is no plastic guide panel to attach the panel and backlight, the Neo Edge technology helps achieve minimal bezel width, while blocking light leakage and being waterproof and dustproof."

Mass production of the display begins in November with Chinese OEMs slated to be the first customers.
