For a while now people have been obsessing over the size of phones and smartphones all around. For that, in my opinion, the smartphone industry is starting to look more and more like the fashion industry: increasingly anorexic. Personally, I honestly can’t grasp the concept of slimming phones down until you can barely feel it, but apparently manufacturers are getting with the program. LG, for instance, has officially unveiled the world’s slimmest Full HD LCD panel designed exclusively fr smartphone. The 5.2 inch panel enables manufacturers to come up with thinner full HD smartphones without the sacrifice of image quality. However, it does come with a small drawback for those small size fanatics – 5.2 inch isn’t exactly their favorite phone size.
Well, leaving the size of it alone, its thickness is at a mere 2.2 mm and it has a very slim 2.3 mm bezel, which makes the panel the slimmest and narrowest among the existing full HD LCD panels designed for smartphones. This latest panel uses Advanced One-Glass-Solution that enables the user to have a better touchscreen experience and it also has dual-flexible printed circuits, which are placed between the panel. Also the touch film reduces the number of lines on the panel by 30%.
The direct bonding system used is also said to enable greater brightness. The panel’s resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels has a full set of subpixels of Red, Green and Blue, thus formatting a conventional RGB matrix. As it would seem, LG’s display panel outperforms all the current full HD LCD panels with a brightness of up to 535 nits. Furthermore, the Ambient Contrast Ratio results of 3.74:1 based on 10.000 lux suggests that the panel will perform well even in the brightly sunlit areas. We’ll just have to wait and see for ourselves when it is implemented how well it actually performs. Time will tell and it will bring with itself all the answers.
