LCD Application: GBA and GBA SP IPS Screen Replacement


GAME BOY ADVANCE, or GBA for short. It`s the second-generation portable game console released on March 21, 2001, featuring a colorful reflective LCD screen.

The GBA SP was released on February 14, 2003. An improved version of the GBA was changed from the original horizontal plate design to the more popular flip design, reducing the volume of the console. Completely compatible with previous GBA games.

The GBA screen can only be seen under the sun, or light at night, but it is very visible in high light. It adds a reflective layer behind the screen LCD panel, which relies on reflecting light to support the visibility of the screen, and it`s called a full reflective LCD screen.
