In general, according to one embodiment, a display device comprises a display, a circuit substrate, a plurality of connector terminals, a first cover, a second cover, and a fastening member. The display comprises a first face and a second face. The first face comprises a display screen. The second face is on an opposite side of the first face. The circuit substrate comprises a first side and a second side adjacent to the first side, and overlaps the second face of the display. The plurality of connector terminals are disposed at a vicinity of each of the first side and the second side of the circuit substrate. The first cover comprises a first opening exposing the connector terminals therethrough, and covers the second face. The second cover comprises a linking portion and a noncircular through hole, and covers the first opening across the first side and the second side of the circuit substrate. The linking portion is positioned in between the first side and the second side. The fastening member is inserted through the through hole of the second cover so as to fix the second cover, the circuit substrate, and the display.

An embodiment is described in detail below with reference to the accompanying drawings. For the sake of convenience in the following explanation, the directions are defined in the following manner. When viewed from the front of a display device 1, the leftward direction (or when viewed from behind, the rightward direction) is defined as the X direction, the upward direction is defined as the Y direction, and the depth direction (backward direction) is defined as the Z direction.
