LG is showing off a new full HD capable 5.2 inch LCD panel which it claims to be the thinnest in the world. The panels measures a measly 2.2 mm thick while having a bezel of just 2.3 mm. This makes it both the slimmest panel while also having the narrowest bezel among all full HD capable LCD panels currently available for use on mobile devices. This, the company stated will allow them for use in making mobile devices such as smartphones having the maximum viewing area which again is critical given the increasing role that smartphones are playing for multimedia consumption and such.
Also, given the new LCD panel measures 5.2 inches, analysts have already started predicting the upcoming LG G2 smartphones could well be seen equipped with such panels. The South Korean conglomerate has also stated the new LCD panels are based on the advanced One-Glass-Solution (OGS) technology which it claims will ensure much better touchscreen experience. As per this tech, the touchscreen layer is placed directly along the underside of the cover glass, thereby combining the two layers. This negates the need to have a separate layer of touchscreen while also allows more light to pass through. Further, LG has also stated the new technique makes for a simpler manufacturing process and can also turn out to be cheaper.
Coming to the technical specifications, LG has stated the new LCD panel is able to deliver a maximum brightness of 535 nits, which is more than any full HD panel is capable of right now. Also, its 1,080 X 1,920 pixels comprising of Red, Green, Blue (RGB) sub-pixels that light up the 5.5 inch display. LG is also claiming the new display will make for a better reading experience even in sun lit areas given the high contrast that the display offers. The display returned figures of 3.74:1 based on 10,000 lux with Ambient Contrast Ratio.
