LG consistently produces impressive screens, and this one is no exception. The 55-inch OLED panel is just 0.97 millimetres thick, and can be removed from its magnetic wall mounting like a poster.
The screen, shown off at an LG even in South Korea on Tuesday, weighs just 1.6 kilos. It’s clearly much, much skinnier than existing OLED displays, which suggests that the bulk of the electronics are actually lurking somewhere else — perhaps in the magnetic mounting fastened to the wall.
Unsurprisingly, there’s absolutely no word on whether or not this panel might see commercial production. Instead, it’s likely just a a chance for LG to show off its current state-of-the-art designs. Indeed, even if it was on sale, it would prove inaccessible for most — not least because it uses an OLED panel, which remains impressive but eye-wateringly expensive. [Yohap News via CNET via Verge]
