Seoul, July 14 (): The Korean Company LG has launched the world’s thinnest full-HD LCD panel for the use of smartphones.
The new 5.2-inch LCD panel is just 2.2mm thick and has a 2.3mm bezel with full HD. The LCD display has a resolution of 1,080 by 1,920 pixels consisting of Red, Green, Blue (RGB) sub-pixels.
The LG Display claims that the screen will provide good visibility under strong sunlight and display delivers 535 nits of brightness with the contrast ratio coming in at 3.74:1 based on 10,000 lux. The panel also boasts higher contrast and brightness levels, plus quicker touch-response time than existing LCD screens.
LG claimed that it has used a new in-house technology it calls “Advanced One-Glass-Solution.” The panel features Dual Flexible Printed circuits. This tech involves inserting dual flexible printed circuits between the LCD panel and touch film. This helps reduce the number of lines on the panel by more than 30 percent. This eliminates the need for a separate touch-screen layer and allows more light through.
The entire package is bonded together with a clear resin that will not block light and maintains thinness. This helps viewer to view films, video clips and gaming clearly in indoors and outdoors.
“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, Vice President and Head of LG Display’s IT and Mobile Development Group, at the launch.
Last month, the company declared it was beginning the mass production of flexible and unbreakable smartphone display panels. LG Display was the fourth-largest manufacturer of the small and medium-size displays used in smartphones and tablets by revenue last year. Samsung Display at 23 percent was leading the market share.
