Samsung and LG are developing bezel-less smartphone OLED displays for Apple

According to a report from Korea, Apple approached both LG Display and Samsung Display, asking its suppliers to develop a completely bezel-less AMOLED display for future iPhones.

Designing an OLED without a bezel is a challenge, mostly because of the encapsulation layer that has to protect the OLEDs. Using an under-the-display camera is also said to be a problem for the OLED makers in such a design.


According to the report, it may take years for SDC and LGD to develop such a technology, and in the meantime they plan to reduce the bezel in their AMOLEDs, to get closer to Apple's target.
