IFA 2010 is just around the corner, and LG is expected to show up in a big way.
In the last year or so, the race to make the thinnest TV seems to have slowed and the focus has been put on 3D technology above all else. Once the industry picks something new to focus on, the rest tends to get left behind.
LG isn't stopping though, and rumor has it that at the IFA tradeshow in the beginning of September, LG will be showing off a nearly two dimensional TV that's capable of 3D images. This is all thanks to a new tech that the company is calling Nano Full LED.
In LG's new LED backlit set, there will be a small screen that uses micro lenses to make lighting even more granular. That is, lighting will be much more accurate to what's showing on the screen.
LG's new set will be 7.8mm thick, which would make it one of the thinnest mass produced televisions of all time, if not the thinnest. Other companies, and even LG have shown off thinner sets, but none of them made it to store shelves.
