LG claims breakthrough on lightweight displays

LG Display's AIT panelKorean giant LG said it will start mass producing lightweight screens for notebook PCs, which also are thinner than previous panels.

The technology, called Advanced In-Cell Touch (AIT) uses a touch sensor inside the LCD panel itself, rather than as an add on on the top of a notebook display.

These type of panels are already in use in some smartphones, including the LG G4s but the company said it is the first time they will be produced for notebook PCs.

The panel’s thickness has been reduced by a millimetre and its weight by 200 grams, compared to ordinary 15.6 inch touch embedded panels with Full HD.

LG also claims that it will offer a brighter and clearer screen picture.

The company claims it has already signed contracts with a number of global notebook PC manufacturers in 14-inch and 15.6-inch sizes, but it declined to say which customers had signed on the dotted line.

LG said that in 2014 10 percent of notebook PCs were touch sensitive, a figure that is expected to rise to 20 percent in 2016 and 30 percent in 2019.
