LG creates super-thin 1080p LCD panel, likely intended for G2

While still state of the art, by this point full HD 1080p displays on smartphones are beginning to lose some of their novelty. After all, we’ve been seeing them show up on handsets for more than half a year now. Hoping to help keep things fresh, LG just announced a new 1080p panel for phones that the company claims is the thinnest anyone’s made to date.

LG’s panel is a 5.2-inch model, and measures a scant 2.2 millimeters thick. Those of you sensitive to the appearance of the PenTile subpixel arrangement employed on full HD displays like the one Samsung used for the Galaxy S 4 will be happy to learn that LG’s panel uses the gold standard RGB arrangement. It’s also got quite the narrow bezel, to boot, coming in at just 2.3 millimeters wide.

The announcement of this component makes no direct claim as to any future products it might show up in, but the LG G2 has got to be the most likely candidate for the LG phone that will introduce us to the part. You might remember that a 5.2-inch screen turned up in G2 rumors in the past, so it’s no stretch to put two and two together like this. The G2 will almost certainly be announced on August 7, so we’ll get our answers then.
