  • Patent number: 10088719
    Abstract: A liquid crystal display device includes an arrangement of pixels, wherein each of the pixels includes at least three subpixels, wherein the second subpixel is a Red subpixel, in contrast to the traditional Red-Green-Blue subpixel configuration. Further, a signal line is disposed next to each of the subpixels, but a common line is disposed next to a subpixel which is not a Red subpixel. Thus, the second subpixel, which is a Red subpixel, has on both sides thereof signal lines, but lacks a common line next thereto.
