LG introduces new ‘wallpaper’ TV which is as thin as a sticker
Nirapad News: LG has shown off a 55-inch television that’s less than a millimetre thick and can easily be stuck to your wall like a fridge magnet.
The ‘wallpaper’ TV weighs just 1.9kg and has an organic light-emitting diode (OLED) display.
These sorts of displays are thinner and more efficient than other types of display, including LCD, LED and plasma models – although they are expensive to produce and so tend to cost a lot more.
The TV hangs thanks to magnetic panel that you fix to the wall – and can be removed with ease.
The device is much thinner than LG’s current flagship 55-inch OLED TV that comes in at 4.3mm thick.
At the moment, the TV is just a prototype used to show off the company’s OLED technology – LG hasn’t announced plans to release it as a product quite yet.
At the press conference where the skinny display was unveiled, LG’s Yeo Sang-deog told reporters that the company was ramping up production of OLED televisions and will sell 600,000 of them this year and 1.5 million in 2016.
The company will continue to focus on bigger screens, with plans to release a 99-incher before the end of 2015.
