LG Display has manufactured what it claims is "the world's slimmest Full HD LCD panel for smartphones."
At 2mm thick and 5.2in across, with a 2.3mm bezel, LG display claims it is also the world's narrowest full HD panel for mobile devices.
The super-slim display, which features a 1,920 x 1,080 resolution, is designed to make smartphones both sleeker and lighter. LG also says it will provide an improved viewing experience and superior "grip-ability."
"The world's slimmest Full HD LCD panel will provide larger visible display space on smartphones, critical as mobile devices are used for multimedia viewing more than ever before," said LG Display.
Key to the panel is LG's Advanced One-Glass-Solution (OGS), which enables "an enhanced touch screen experience."
Additionally, the display uses Dual Flexible Printed Circuits, which are inserted between the panel and touch film, reducing the lines by 30 per cent, according to the South Korean company.
The use of a direct bonding system also provides extra brightness – 535 nits, to be exact.
"Today's introduction of the world's slimmest Full HD LCD panel represents an exciting advancement for the high-end smartphone segment," said Dr. Byeong-Koo Kim, Vice President and Head of LG Display's IT and Mobile Development Group.
LG this week announced a 7 August event, where we believe we will see the launch of the Optimus G2 smartphone. It is highly possible that the device will pack LG's super-slim display.
Last month, LG Display announced it will begin mass production of flexible OLED smartphone screens in the fourth quarter of this year.
"LG Display will continue its commitment to developing products that maximize consumer value as well as opening new doors for the mobile and tablet PC industry," added Kim
