Why displays the edge?

Tried to search for the answer, but there are only some concepts. So, why all displays have at least a small but quite noticeable edge? Why can't you bend the display all that there is? Are there any insurmountable difficulties? Because I have not seen any device with such a display.

Solution
To pixels it is necessary somehow to bring food. This is done a loop around the perimeter. And plume has a minimum bend radius. So he hides behind the frame.
Not for the sake of argument, but out of curiosity: why the plumes bottom does not ride? - fleta.McLaughl commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:20
And you design this connection seen? There is a Flex cable glued to the glass, directly on the coating. Glass make single layer, and then cut into individual displays. To make the coating on the ends individually for each glass, low-tech, and maybe even impossible for mass production. - Jedidiah_Rempel8 commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:23
how I imagine the production of displays, it is possible. only the price very much will grow. so nobody can do until a clear answer to the question "why". profit unclear because it is then formed frame from the hull, plus the user's fingers will close on each side. - Casandra_Kutch commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:26
The price there will be space. After all, how is the display:

Take booolshoy sheet, put a coating. Then apply the resist, zasvechivat washed off. Poison spraying. The resulting track. Cut a sheet of glass on the display. Sticking loops pack and tydy.

And how to do it with the ends? It is necessary to solve dozens of serious problems:

Here are the most obvious
1) Coating all sides of each piece of glass.
2) the resist on all sides of each piece of glass
3) most fun — the illumination mask (on the glass, yeah) on all four sides for a unique pattern.
4) something to do with the edge, there is a potential source of marriage because there is fine coating is not applied, the edge will have to be sanded round.

The frame they squeezed as they can, but to just take and get rid of it... - Jedidiah_Rempel8 commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:29

If you're talking about mobile devices — imagine what would happen if I put it screen-down.
And what will happen? - fleta.McLaughl commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:22
Scratched? - Jedidiah_Rempel8 commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:25
Uh, you were holding modern devices? At least the iPhone? - Casandra_Kutch commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:28

Here read the comments, well, or that model of monitor.
And here is a video about XSense
This monitor still has a inch frame.

As for the concept that no one is saying that the display may not be framed in a metal bezel, but modern phones are not for reasons of strength has the edge — the display module are present. And the random clicking is quite cut off by the software.

And XSence is quite different — a flexible touch panel about the edge there is no mention. - fleta.McLaughl commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:24

And in this frame the hour whether there are any conductive items?
There are loops on the perimeter pass. - fleta.McLaughl commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:26

Now I definitely can't sleep... Why you ask?! I hope that someone in the comments will answer.

Keep. Although the Nexus7 is very much a giant field, but the owner says that it is so convenient.
Can also add to the Treasury of another question: why the thickness of cutting less and less (now 6+mm, although a year ago, all went with 12mm and not break off), instead of equipping an adequate battery.
If we vyshnem the screen, it will frame. And to keep, for example, iPhone, frame not needed — only the fact that bigger and heavier. - fleta.McLaughl commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:30
Here is a photo of the display module

Frame small, but they are. - Jedidiah_Rempel8 commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:33

Below the screen is normally perceived by the eye. If it is unframed, will be "lost" information at the edges of the screen. It will be difficult to focus the mind.
I think it's still a technical limitation. - fleta.McLaughl commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:32

Because of the false positives by hand where you hold the phone, I guess. If using one hand to hold the phone from his fingertips sometimes bend on the edge of your phone and touch the screen exactly in that part where the frame is. The thinner the phone, the brighter it is expressed. Even the HTC One, which has a normal frame size, I ever manage to accidentally press the screen. I think such heavy smartphones like the iphone 4, 4s this can sometimes be much less due to the thickness of the phone.
There is a purely technological limits of displays. - fleta.McLaughl commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:34
IPhone 5, touch finger to screen even more frames, no false positives. This is purely softwera implementation. - Jedidiah_Rempel8 commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:37

It's the backlight do not behind the screen, and around. This allows you to make screens thinner.
Have AMOLED screens the pixels themselves glow, nevertheless the phone with him the frame is. Although about the display not sure, not pulled. - fleta.McLaughl commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:36
