AUO Shows Off 4.46-inch Display With World’s Narrowest Border

AU Optronics has announced a new 4.46-inch mobile phone touch panel display that has what it claims to be the world’s narrowest border. The display uses proprietary technology allowing for incredibly thin borders and uses low-temperature poly-silicon (LTPS) technology. The technology allows the display to have a border width of only 1 mm when placed on the module surface.

The 4.46-inch display has 720p resolution, and the 1 mm thick bezel maximizes the display area available. AUO also notes that the 1 mm thick border makes image and video content appear larger. AUO is also bragging on its other display technologies including AMOLED, IGZO, and AHVA.

AHVA is Advanced Hyper-Viewing Angle. So far, AUO has been able to develop AHVA panels ranging in size from 3 to 15.6-inches. The screens have been used in devices such as digital cameras, smartphones, e-readers, and car displays, tablets, and ultrabooks. AUO’s 4.97-inch full HD resolution AHVA Mobile Display is currently in mass production.

The small display has a resolution of 1080x1920 with 443ppi. AUO also has a 4.65-inch AMOLED panel that has a resolution of up to 317 ppi. Another display that AUO is talking about is a larger 10-inch panel aimed at tablets using IGZO technology. That display has a resolution of 2560x1600 and promises to use less power thanks to better screen transmittance.

ASUS Promises 300% Range Boost With Its New RT-N12HP Router

Recently ASUS announced its fresh RT-N12HP router. The novelty carries a pair of (thankfully removable) high-gain, 9dBi antennas and a separate signal amplifier that can jointly boost the range of the router's 802.11n wireless up to 300 percent versus challengers that reach the same 300Mbps peak speed. Beyond that, the hotspot mostly claims sheer flexibility as its virtue with support for as many as four separate WiFi networks and a fast toggle between pure router, access point and repeater modes.

The specifications include:

The pricing and availability are not yet unveiled.
