LG’s branch LG Display has just made a breakthrough in the department of HD Televisions. They have shown off a detachable display panel so thin that it clocks at 0.97mm (0.04 inches ) and it weighs just 1.9kg (4.1 pounds). For comparison, their existing flagship 55-inch OLED panel is 4.3 mm thick. It may be possible due the fact that it doesn’t incorporate the circuitry that would actually make it function as a TV. It was made official at a press event in Korea on Tuesday and it is termed as proof-of-concept television. It is a 55″ OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) panel. Sporting an OLED panel means insane black levels and great color reproduction.
The display panel is so thin and light that it can be stuck to a wall with magnetic mat using magnets. To remove the panel, just peel it off, literally! But this is not a commercial product at the moment. It is just a proof of concept and it may or may not be in the future TVs by LG. They have made it quite clear that their future TVs will boast OLED panels, Recently, Samsung and Sony have even chosen to move away from the technology due to its poor yields and tricky manufacturing process but LG Display knows what they are doing.
