LG Philips, a Korean joint venture devoted to producing LCD displays, today announced they will unveil the thinnest LCD yet on October 3. The new display is 1.3 mm thick - about one-third thinner than existing thin LCDs - and should allow manufacturers to reduce the thickness of today's already slim handsets. It is even thinner than the latest generation of slim OLED displays, which are are 1.5 to 1.8 mm thick. LG Philips claims to have increased the brightness of these new displays over current offerings with a new LCD backlight and a thin light guide plate. The new display also has a modified structure that increases the durability of the display.

i expect

this doesn't mean that we are going to see paper-thin phones from lg, necessarily, but it does mean that things will be brighter, more durable, and smaller all at once. LG hasn't gone thin-crazy yet, so it seems more likely that we will just see full-featured phones that are still surprisingly small as a result of this display.
