LG showcases World’s Thinnest Full HD LCD Smartphone Display Panel
You know, I am quite starting to like LG as they are constantly thriving to be the first ones onto a new technology. Last year’s electronic shows were a good treat as LG pulled the drapes off the world’s first 4K and OLED TVs with Sony and Samsung following suit. Then there was also the curved OLED panel and the recently unveiled Flexible OLED display which goes to show that the company has their finger right on the innovation.
And now there is another display to add to this impressive lineup as LG recently showcased what it calls the “World’s Thinnest Smartphone display”! The 5.2” display is just 2.2mm thick with a 2.3mm bezel. It boasts of a 1920×1080 resolution and has red, green and blue sub-pixels with a maximum display brightness of 535 nits. Add to that the ambient contrast ratio of 3.74:1 based on 10000 lux and you have a display whose visibility will not wither even in bright outdoor light conditions.
Manufactured using LG’s in-house One Glass Solution technology, the panel allows the placement of the touch panel directly under the cover glass thus eliminating the need of a separate touch display and results in increased brightness and reduction in panel lines by a good 30%. That makes this display a very cost-effective option in future Smartphone displays.
Although there’s no word out yet on when this full HD display will be available, there is a strong possibility that the upcoming Optimus G2 which is slated for an August 7 launch may sport this wafer-thin display. Man, the rate at which these displays are getting thinner, I can almost imagine Smartphone displays giving even a cartridge sheet a run for its thinness!
