TCL CSOT ultra-slim-bezel display now in mass production
TCL'S CSOT display research group has been working on new technology that can reduce the bezel around a given mobile device's display to as little as 1mm on all sides. Now, the company has announced that this new panel type is ready for mass production. It is touted to boost power efficiency and battery life in addition to screen-to-body ratio in next-gen smartphones.
The display R&D group claims that its new display technology, touted to bring bezels down by up to 30% and, thus, to about 1mm per side, is now in mass production, thanks to a new "FIAA Slim Design" technique. The new, potentially screen real estate-boosting panel type is based on circuitry arranged in a new kind of matrix that puts power-related "VSS" signals right through the "AA" light-emitting area.
TCL also asserts that this new display type reduces battery use by up to 8% at the same brightness while maintaining color-accuracy and resolution; then again, its "borderless" look depends on 2.5D glass for the full effect. The company has yet to specify when the new 'bezel-less' display type will be available to clients.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
