Samsung Makes Slimmest Mobile LCD Screen

Samsung Slimmest LCD

It’s just 0.82mm thick, no thicker than a credit card and is said to be the world’s slimmest liquid crystal display (LCD) panel today. Samsung was able to produce the thin LCD by redesigning the light guide plate subassembly and the glass substrate, which accounted for most of the LCD module’s thickness.

At the same time, Samsung developed a new mobile technology to go with it, 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.

With this development, Samsung hopes to enable their customers, who make cellphones and other small electronic products, to develop differentiated and more reliable, ultra-thin mobile products.
