Samsung Reveals World's Slimmest Mobile LCD Screen
Samsung's new display is just 0.82mm thick
Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the world's largest provider of thin-film transistor, liquid crystal display (TFT-LCD) panels announced today that it has developed the thinnest reported LCD panel, one no thicker than a credit card at 0.82mm, which is 0.07mm thinner than the panel previously reported to be the world's slimmest. The company also announced that it has developed a new mobile technology, which it is calling, "i-Lens", for integrating the entire panel assembly, including a protective layer, into a single, thinner module that is more shock-resistant and easier to read than conventional panels.
