Back in May LG had created the world’s thinnest LCD TV panel measuring 5.9mm. Now, they’re back again reclaiming the title from Samsung by showing off a panel that is more than 50 percent thinner than LG’s previous one, measuring at just 2.6mm. LG claims the slimness is an achievement from use of “slimming” technologies, edge-lit LED backlight and proprietary optical film technology.
Furthermore, the 42-inch slim LCD panel is able to display full HD content (1920×1080) at a refresh rate of 120Hz and weighs in under 4kgs.
LG will showcase the panel at the CES 2010 in January.
