LG.Philips LCD announced that it has developed the world’s slimmest TFT-LCD panel, measuring only 1.3mm in thickness including the module, for super-slim mobile phones.
This will enable mobile phone manufacturers to produce mobile phones even slimmer than the 6.9mm thick phones available today. This panel will also make it possible to create slide-up phones that break the 10mm barrier.
This new panel is 32% slimmer than the TFT-LCD panels currently in use for mobile phones, which normally measure between 1.9 and 2.9mm. More importantly, the new product is even slimmer than OLEDs, which are typically between 1.5 and 1.8mm. This refutes the myth that LCDs are thicker than OLEDs.
