Nikkei Asian Review reported about a newly developed display panel by Japan Display (JDI), that can be opened and closed like a book and either show the same content on both sides (a film for instance) or entirely separate content, so people could write mail and surf the internet at the same time. This might be an ideal display for the smartphone industry, that strives to integrate bigger display sizes while maintaining portability.
Apparently, JDI is already working together with a big and global Chinese partner to release a smartphone with that display as early as next summer. Unfortunately we have no information on who that partner is as of yet. The display itself is based on LCD technology, features very slim 1 mm bezels around the screen and only has a 2 mm gap between the two sides of the display when opened.

As a young tech enthusiast with a history involving assembling and overclocking projects, I ended up working as a projectionist with good old 35-mm films before I entered the computer world at a professional level. I assisted customers at an Austrian IT service provider called Iphos IT Solutions for seven years, working as a Windows client and server administrator as well as a project manager. As a freelancer who travels a lot, I have been able to write for Notebookcheck from all corners of the world since 2016. My articles cover brand-new mobile technologies in smartphones, laptops, and gadgets of all kinds.
