Apple has expressed interest in Advanced LCD displays from Japan Display for future iPhone models, reports the WSJ.

The new display technology matches and exceeds some of the benefits offered by OLED displays. For example, the bezel or border area around an Advanced LCD can be reduced to just 0.5mm, less than the 1mm for OLED.

Japan Display argues that its improved LCD screens can match or exceed some of OLED’s advantages at lower cost. In Full Active, the bezel or border space around each edge of the screen has been trimmed to 0.5 millimeters, the company says, compared with as much as several millimeters on older LCDs. Minatake Kashio, director of Tokyo-based consultancy Fomalhaut Techno Solutions, said current OLED smartphone panels have a bezel of about one millimeter.

Notably, this aligns with recent report from The Bell which said Apple has placed orders with Japan Display for a 6-inch-plus LCD. Next year's iPhone is still a year away so there's plenty of time for plans to change.

Looks like this could be the end of the iPhone 8 design or just another cash cow. The iPhone 10 with a plus size body will be the real deal. The iPhone 10 tomorrow is just another excuse to see how the people react to it. Then the bigger screen size for another 200 USD more. Apple I'll give you 5 more years then I'll look at you again to see what's cooking.
