LG Display claims world's thinnest TV panel
South Korea's LG Display said Monday it has developed the world's thinnest LCD television panel, measuring 2.6 millimetres (0.1 inches).
The company, the world's second largest maker of liquid crystal displays (LCDs), said the panel uses an ultra-slim, edge-lit light emitting diode backlight system and proprietary optical film technology.
It said in a statement the 42-inch panel weighs less than 4 kilograms (8.8 pounds), making it ideal for wall-mounted TVs.
LG Display said it would showcase the product at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas early next year.
