Samsung’s Slimmer Than Slim LCD Just 10 Millimeters Thick
Samsung’s super-slim 40-inch LCD
Samsung is showing off a 40-inch LCD panel that's just 10-mm, or .39 inches, deep this week at FPD International 2007.
File this one under the this-is-getting-ridiculous category. Samsung this week plans to show an LCD panel with an ultra, ultra slim bezel depth of 10 millimeters. That’s .39 inches for those of us who aren’t using the metric system.
And it’s not for a tiny OLED-like 11 inch TV—it’s for a 40-inch diagonal LCD, sure to make the folks at the FPD International 2007 show in Yokohama, Japan, drool a little.
Samsung’s taking the slim-profile LCD with nods to the monitors designed for desktop computers. That includes energy efficiency, too, with the power consumption reportedly at 90 watts or less.
Pretty soon we’ll just need poster frames to decorate our TVs.
