  • Publication number: 20240188365
    Abstract: A display panel and an electronic device are provided. The display panel includes a first stacked layer and a second stacked layer disposed on a base substrate. Openings are defined on the second stacked layer corresponding to transparent areas, and the openings penetrate the second stacked layer, the first stacked layer, and at least part of the base substrate. The first stacked layer in the transparent areas is removed by forming the openings in the transparent areas. Therefore, transmittance in the transparent areas is improved, thereby solving a problem of poor transmittance in current transparent display screens.

  • Publication number: 20240107855
    Abstract: A display panel is provided. The display panel includes: a pixel definition layer including light-emitting openings in an array distribution; a light-emitting layer disposed in the light-emitting openings; and photosensitive elements disposed above the pixel definition layer, wherein projections of the photosensitive elements on the pixel definition layer are located outside the light-emitting openings. According to the present disclosure, the photosensitive elements are disposed obliquely above the light-emitting openings of the display panel. In this way, the photosensitive elements can more effectively sense the light emitted upward from the light-emitting layer and perform signal feedback.
