lg-26mm-thin-panel[1].jpgWith CES 2010 just around the corner, LG have revealed a few snippets of information on what they claim to be the world’s thinnest 42 inch LCD panel.

Measuring in at 2.6mm thick, the prototype panel is LED-backlit, runs at a refresh rate of 120Hz and weighs less than 4 kilograms.

With full HD 1080p 1920x 1080 resolution, LG have halved the size of their next thinnest offering (measuring in at 5.9 mm) in less than a year.

Dr. In Jae Chung, LG Display’s CTO and Executive Vice President noted, “With the development of the world’s thinnest LED LCD TV panel that is only 2.6mm thick, LG Display has once again demonstrated its technical prowess to satisfy customer demand for high resolution and slim design products. We will continue to spur R&D activities in order to provide our customers and the market with the differentiated products that they desire.”

We certainly do desire a TV that thin, Dr In Jae Chung! More news on this one following Tech Digest’s CES coverage in the new year.
