An upcoming budget-friendly iPhone may have a thinner bezel than the high-end iPhone X.

The reported budget-friendly, 6.1-inch LCD iPhone may get thinner bezels through a piece of technology called “Full Active LCD” from Japan Display, according to supply-chain outlet Macotakara via 9to5Mac.


Japan Display’s Full Active LCD technology comes with the proprietary Pixel Eyes feature, which essentially allows for thinner displays on devices. A Full Active screen also makes a thinner bezel possible. The upcoming 6.1-inch iPhone may have a bezel as thin as 0.5 millimeter. As a point of reference, the iPhone X has a 1-mm bezel.

The Japanese company introduced mass production of its Full Active LCDs in 2017, according to a statement. Given the amount of time it takes to adopt a new technology, it appears timely for new iPhones to incorporate these new displays.


Meanwhile, Macotakara mentioned Apple may have encountered production issues with the 6.1-inch devices. This means the release of the the 6.1-inch iPhones may get pushed back to November.  Alfred Bayle /ra
