Samsung To Show Super Thin 7mm TV at CES

Samsung Electronics plans to show a flat-panel TV that's as thin as just 6.5-millimeters at this week's International CES in Las Vegas.

The Samsung TV, Here are some details which are immediately available, is between 6.5mm and 7mm across its width and has an LED backlight.

The backlight sits behind the LCD panel and generates the light that shines through it to allow the image to be seen. Most LCD panels use thicker backlights that make use of fluorescent lights but LEDs are fast finding favor with TV makers for their thinness and better overall light.

The Samsung TV will be at present to be the thinnest LCD TV yet demonstrated.

One thing I would like to point out once you have a television this thin you will have to encase it in something to protect it from breakage or mounting since its so fragile. So why worry about how thin it can be? No price info is available yet.
