It seems that another exciting battle in the war of the ‘first OEM to manufacture ultra thin touchscreen phones’ has come to a close. Announced Thursday morning, LG Display (the display arm of the huge tech company) has officially introduced the world’s slimmest Full-HD LCD panel for use in upcoming smartphones. Before getting into details, take a gander at one of the press images below:
I mean, you don’t have to be a ‘nerd’ to feel slightly turned on by this thing. She’s a ‘beaut’ (the display,) isn’t she?
It measures 5.2-inches and weighs in at 2.2mm thin, 2.3mm with it’s bezel and features the company’s Advanced One-Glass-Solution (OGS,) LG’s latest and most impressive touchscreen technology. It includes ‘Dual Flexible Printed Circuits,’ which is better than using a single circuit, they claim, as it reduces the number of lines on the panel by over 30-percent. The company states that the smartphone market is reaching for the full package: brilliant picture, hardware that can keep up and ease of functionality, or “grip-ability” as they call it.
LG’s Full-HD LCD display uses 1080×1920 pixels with red, green and blue sub-pixels (just as some LCD screen HD televisions do) that illuminate content at 535 nits, which outshines current Full-HD LCD phone screens.
“Today’s introduction of the world’s slimmest Full-HD LCD panel represents an exciting advancement for the high-end smartphone segment, and is possible due to our world-class expertise in IPS and touch technologies,” said Dr. Byeong-Koo Kim, VP and Head of LG Display’s IT and Mobile Development Group. “LG Display will continue its commitment to developing products that maximize consumer value as well as opening new doors for the mobile and table PC industry.”
At this point, there’s no word on when these skinny screens will find themselves into our hands. Still, this does mark a real milestone in the smart device world. Especially with companies like Samsung and Apple allegedly fixing to launch their versions, this is by no means the end for these tech giants. Rather it’s closer to the beginning of seeing the next generation technology reach consumers. LG certainly won a battle here, but as they say…
