LG Optimus G2 to feature world’s thinnest Full HD 1080p LCD panel

LG has announced an ultra thin 5.2 inch Full HD LCD panel which is just 2.2mm across. It is highly probable to be used in LG Optimus G2, which is also rumored to feature a 5.2 inch display and is one of the most hyped upcoming Smartphone by LG in an event on August 7. The display also features a thin 2.3 mm bezel which explains the thin bezel in LG Optimus G2 in photos and videos leaked recently.


Dr. Byeong-Koo Kim, VP and Head of LG Display’s IT and Mobile Development Group said:

Today’s introduction of the world’s slimmest Full HD LCD panel represents an exciting advancement for the high-end Smartphone segment and is possible due to our world-class expertise in IPS and touch technologies. LG Display will continue its commitment to developing products that maximize consumer value as well as opening new doors for the mobile and tablet PC industry.

The new panel uses One Glass Solution (OGS), which is an arrangement in which distance between display and touch is reduced by making them one. This also enables it to have better brightness levels and viewing angles than existing displays. As a consequence, it can also offer a maximum brightness of 535 nits. It has 1920×1080 pixels consisting of Red, Green and Blue (RGB) subpixels.

LG also noted in a press release:

Only 2.2mm thin with a 2.3mm bezel, LG Display’s new panel is both slimmest and narrowest among existing Full HD LCD panels designed for mobile devices.

To remind you, LG Optimus G2 is also confirmed to be coming with a Quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.3 GHz and is rumored to feature 3 GB of RAM and a 13 MP rear camera.
