SEOUL, July 11 (Yonhap) -- LG Display Co., a South Korean display giant, Thursday unveiled what it claims to be the world's slimmest full HD LCD panel for smartphones.
The 5.2-inch panel is only 2.2 millimeters thin enabling sleeker smartphones featuring better grip-ability and a superior viewing experience.
The panel will also provide larger visible display space on smartphones, which is critical as mobile devices are used for multimedia viewing more than ever before, LG Display said.
The new panel will be mounted on the Optimus G2 to be released next month by LG Electronics Inc., the world's third-largest smartphone maker.
LG Display said the new panel with a 2.3 millimeter bezel has a resolution of 1920 x 1080, and also has "enhanced outdoor readability," meaning that users of the new display can easily read in sunlight.
"The panel is an exciting advancement for the high-end smartphone segment, and opens new doors for the mobile and tablet PC industry," LG Display said.
