Smartphones are becoming bigger, more powerful and thinner. LG Display is producing some solid results by not only teasing the upcoming release of a smartphone with a flexible display this year, but have unveiled what they’re claiming the “World’s Slimmest Full HD LCD Panel for Smartphones.” In Korea, LG showed off a 5.2-inch 1080p display that is a mere 2.2mm thin, plus sports a 2.3mm bezel – making it the slimmest and narrowest full HD LCD display ever manufactured.

LG notes that this “is an exciting advancement for the premium mobile device market enabling sleeker Full HD smartphones featuring better “grip-ability” and a superior viewing experience.” LG coined a new term for this technology called One-Glass-Solution, otherwise known as OGS, that inserts “Dual Flexible Printed Circuits” between the panel and touch film, thus reduces the number of lines on the display by more than 30%, and allows for greater brightness (even in direct sunlight).

“The new panel’s superiority in displaying resolution, brightness, and contrast ratio results in enhanced outdoor readability. By utilizing 1080 x 1920 pixels consisting of Red, Green, Blue (RGB) sub-pixels, the panel is a true Full HD display. And with a brightness of 535 nits at maximum, LG Display’s panel outperforms all current mobile Full HD LCD panels.”

    it will be nice, only thing is that Corning said 2 years for it, but I can’t wait for that antireflective coating and the antibacterial one too.

    Let’s hope they were able to improve the power consumption in these screens. It sucks when Android OS says the display eats up 46% of your battery life and your phone dies after 6 hours.

      My Samsung phone lasts well over 12 hours with heavy use. My wife’s Note II last even longer.

      My Note 2 lasts with moderate usage from 8am to 1am in the morning with 8% battery left. No special mods, just flashed to the international version stock ROM. This is with HSPA+/LTE on at all times.

      That’s because the NOTE 2 is a huge phone and has a much larger battery than the Nexus 4, sg3, sg4 etc… so it makes sense.

      The note series always came with higher capacity batteries.

    Now pack a monster battery in, and we’re in business. I don’t want to charge my phone nightly. I want to see it run for, say, 3-4 days of moderate use, before I have to plug it in.

    Make it happen!
