LG makes thinnest ever LCD TV screen

LG Display today rolled out what it believes is the thinnest ever LCD panel for a TV to date. The 42-inch panel is just 0.1 inches thick (2.6mm) and accomplishes the feat through the use of an edge-lit LED backlight, a new optical film and other techniques. At the same time, it still produces a native 1080p resolution and supports a 120Hz refresh rate to increase detail and reduce blurring in fast action video.

The new example is half as thick as a 5.9mm panel that LG showed off as recently as May. Combined with a weight under 8.8 pounds (4kg), a TV built around the LCD would be thin and light enough to easily mount on the wall, LG claims.

Private demos of the extra-thin panel will be shown at CES, but it's not clear whether any TVs based on the design will be unveiled at the same time or will only launch later in the year.
