Itâ€™s a 6.5 mm thin LCD-TV prototype that has a LED backlight.<br /><br />Samsung havenâ€™t told us much about the prototype but we know that itâ€™s the thinnest TV exhibited so far. It beats <a href=/ces2009.php?subaction=showfull&id=1231497650 ><b>JVCâ€™s 7 mm LCD-TV</b></a> also exhibited at CES 2009 as well as Philipsâ€™ 8 mm LCD-TV prototype exhibited at <a href=/article.php?subaction=showfull&id=1229334977><b>IFA 2008 in Berlin</b></a>.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/samsungthinlcd-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/samsungthinlcd-1.jpg" alt="Samsung 6.5 mm" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Samsung 6.5 mm</i></p><br />The prototype has a depth of just 6.5 mm thanks to a LED backlight with LED positioned at the two sides of the panel. The light is distributed across the panel by light diffusers.<br /><br />The TV is not as thin as OLED, though. Sonyâ€™s 11-inch OLED-TV, XEL-1, is just 3 mm thick.<br /><br />Samsung has not yet planned to launch this superslim LCD-TV. Sony has a 9.9 mm LCD-TV called the ZX1 series available on the market now.
