Is that 3mm bezel getting you down? AUO says it has created the \"world's narrowest\" smartphone border on a new 4.46-inch 720P touch display -- just a single millimeter in width.

AU Optronics (AUO) is tooting the \"world's first\" horn this morning with its new curved TFT-LCD process on glass substrate. They've also got the world's slimmest -- 0.63mm -- TFT-LCD available in both 1.9-inch and relatively massive 8-inch versions, the latter boasting a 400cd/m2 brightness and 2.1
