Claim of US Patent No. 10,342,133

1. A display device, comprising:an insulating substrate including:
a first area having a display area,
a second area adjacent to the first area, and
a third area adjacent to the second area;
a wiring substrate mounted on a surface side of the insulating substrate at a position that overlaps the third area; and
a supporting substrate fixed to another surface side of the insulating substrate, the other surface side being opposite to the surface side, the supporting substrate including:
a first supporting substrate that overlaps the first area in a plan view, and
a second supporting substrate that overlaps the third area in a plan view, wherein
the third area includes a mounting portion for mourning the wiring substrate,
the second area is located between the first area and the third area, and does not overlap the first supporting substrate and the second supporting substrate in a plan view,
the insulating substrate is bent at the second area so that the first area and the third area face each other,
the first supporting substrate and the second supporting substrate face each other,
a second thickness of the insulating substrate in the second area is less than each of a first thickness of the insulating substrate in the first area and a third thickness of the insulating substrate in the third area, and
a second surface of the insulating substrate on the other surface side in the second area is rougher than each of a first surface of the insulating substrate on the other surface side in the first area and a third surface of the insulating substrate on the other surface side in the third area.
