Nov 21, 2006, 3:47 PM by (staff)
Samsung has announced a new LCD technology to create the thinnest display while increasing durability. The new LCD integrates the screen, and a protective layer technology into a unit 0.82mm thick. The new protective layer actually rests against the glass of the LCD screen as do the other components, which can reduce the thickness of a phone by 1-2.5mm. The new protective layer doesn't just reduce thickness it also increases outdoor visibility by eliminating the protective plastic panel and the gap between it and the screen both of which are primarily causes for outdoor viewing difficulties. The LCDs will be available in sizes up to QVGA in the second half of 2007.
