The world’s slimmest mobile LCD screen from Samsung Electronics is 0.07mm thinner than the panel previously reported to be the world’s slimmest. The new LCD screen is no thicker than a credit card at 0.82mm and is available in 2.1 inch-diagonal and 2.2-inch-diagonal screen sizes. The new Samsung mobile LCD screen features qVGA (240 x 320 pixels) resolution, 300nit brightness and a 500:1 contrast ratio. For the new LCD panel integration Samsung has developed a new mobile technology called, “i-Lens.
The new technology allows integration of 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. Mass production is scheduled to begin in the second half of 2007.
