Samsung Unveils Word's Slimmest TV

Jan. 5, 2009
The new product measures only 0.26 inches thick.

Samsung Electronics on Jan. 5 unveiled what it says is the world's slimmest LCD (liquid crystal display) TV. The new product, measuring only 6.5 millimetere (0.26 inch) thick, is thinner than any other existing TV set, and even slimmer than most mobile handsets, Samsung said.

Its thickness is one seventh of Samsung's "Bordeaux 850" LCD TVs, which is currently the thinnest on the market, the company said.

The new product, which adopts an LED (light emitting diode) backlighting system, will be on display at the 2009 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas from January 8 to 11.
