As the smartphone manufactures are trying to make their terminals thinner and thinner and most and because some of the companies managed to launch such products by reducing the thickness of the screen with various tricks, like merging the touch panel with the display or eliminating the gap between the display components.
LG has already used the in-cell and zerogap technologies for the display that was fitted on their last year’s flagship, the Optimus G. Anyway, the South Korea-based company has now introduced the thinnest full HD display in the world.
Sized 5.2 inches diagonally, the new display is only 2.2 mm thick, while the bezel around it is only 2.3 mm wide. The measurements of the new LG display will definitely be welcomed by the smartphone makers that want their handsets to look as good as possible, as the new panel will allow them to manufacture devices that are almost edge-to-edge.
The new display developed by the South Korean company makes use of the Advanced One Glass Solution technology, which is using dual flexible circuits between the panel and touch film. With this trick LG managed to reduce the lines used for the panel with 30 percent, which, in the end resulted in a thinner display that comes with greater brightness.
According to the manufacturer, the new display has a brightness value of 535 cd/m2, making it the brightest full HD display for smartphones, while the panel used for it has RGB subspixels.
LG failed to announce when the new displays will be implemented on the first smartphones, but since the rumor mill speculates that the upcoming LG G2 will have a 5.2-inch display, it’s not very hard to guess. If don’t know it already, the LG G2 will reportedly become the company’s flagship smartphone for 2013, sources claiming that it will sport 3 GB of RAM, an Snapdragon 800 chipset with quad-core 2.3 GHz CPU and Adreno 330 GPU.
Rumor has it that the LG G2 is so thin that the Asian phone maker had to place the volume rocker on the back. Maybe it’s thin because LG’s new display. Any thoughts?
