The company Japan Display, which supplies screens for the iPhone, launched mass production of the second generation LCD Pixel Eyes intended for premium phone models and tablets. New components will bring not only higher image quality, but will also lead to thinner smartphones with narrow frames around the screen.
Technology “in-cell” Japan Display company suggests that used in a mobile device, the sensor is integrated directly into the display, and not a separate layer. As a result, the screens will not only become slimmer, but also ensure a deeper reproduction of black color and the panel itself becomes more sensitive to taps. However, the display panel will work correctly even with wet fingers, which is a serious problem for current models of iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch.
It is known that when creating the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s Apple has done optical illusion. Due to the rounded edges of the frame around the screen looks thinner than it actually is, because the human eye perceives only the edge of the black glass and aluminum body ignores. In fact, the thickness of the part has remained about the same as that of the iPhone 5. Thanks to the second generation of the display Pixel Eyes display frame can be reduced to 0.5 mm. Decrease the screen edges will allow Apple to even release a 6-inch model in the case of 5.5-inch iPhone 6s Plus.
The second generation LCD displays “Pixel Eyes” is based on LTPS technology. These modules are designed in accordance with the most common display sizes of mobile devices. At the same time their scope expanded. The maximum size of panels on the basis of the first generation of this technology was only 6 inches. The new solution can find application in devices, the screen diagonal of which reaches 16 inches, making it a likely component not only iPhone but also iPad and MacBook.
Japan Display has previously provided his displays smartphones Apple. Since production has begun, the new screens could appear in the iPhone 7, which will be presented this fall.
