LG Display's Latest Prototype Designated as the World's Thinnest Television Panel
As was confirmed by the company on Monday, South Korea's giant LG Display has managed to develop a prototype for the world's thinnest LCD television panel, the measurement of which is a mere 2.6 millimeters (0.1 inches). With the new screen, TV manufacturers will now be able to come out with designs which are much thinner and sleeker.
The firm, which is ranked as the world's second largest market of LCDs, has confirmed that the new panel makes use of "ultra-slim, edge-lit light emitting diode backlight system and proprietary optical film technology". Also, the 42-inch panel weighs less than 4 kilograms and that makes it perfect for wall-mounted television sets as well.
The new panel's thickness is about 50% less than the last thinnest prototype panel, which was a 5.9 millimeters model and was unveiled in May this year, and much thinner than the panel which is in production, which measures at 11.9 millimeters.
LG Display has shared that the new thin panel would be showcased at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show which is all set to take place in Las Vegas next year.
