We might be seeing more large phablets with bezel-less screens soon.
Japan Display Incorporated, an LCD technology joint venture by electronic titans Sony, Toshiba, and Hitachi have announced that the company is ready to shift into full gear for production of their 6-inch, 18:9 aspect ratio, bezel-less displays. Dubbed as “FULL ACTIVE LCD displays”, these screens will have a native resolution of 2160 x 1080, making them ideal for high mid-range and upper-tier smartphone usage. JDI says that their technology allows them to keep the bottom bezels of the display as thin as the other three sides – something that the competition can’t (or won’t) implement in current bezel-less screens.
Aside from that, JDI mentioned that these FULL ACTIVE LCDs come with second-generation Pixel Eyes technology, which allows for deeper blacks in displays. JDI added that users can also interact with their displays with wet fingers.
Availability-wise, given the company’s ties to Sony, expect these new JDI displays to be stuffed into future Xperia handsets first. Other smartphone manufacturers might follow shortly after.
