LG Display's 2.2mm panel is world's slimmest 1080p glass for smartphones
The key behind the new display is something LG calls its Advanced One-Glass-Solution (OGS). Dual Flexible Printed Circuits are inserted between the panel and touch film, reducing by 30% the number of lines on a display. Each pixel contains an RGB sub-pixel. With a maximum brightness of 535 nits, this is the brightest mobile FHD LCD panel around. The screen also offers a high contrast display for easy readability, even in strong sunshine.

While it may be too late to put this into the Optimus G2, it may not be too late if they are thinking about producing an Optimus G2 Pro. I hope it's not too long before I am able to take a gander at this type of screen.

Correction: PA didn't report that the screen size on display was 5.2 inches, so it may actually be included in the Optimus G2.

If LG makes the Nexus 5, they should implement it.

Because when you focus on the screen (the point of the article) all other things in the background are automatically out of focus. Don't let your wang rule your life.

It is clearly the slimmest LCD 1080p panel for smartphone, not in general, because OLED tech can make slimmer panel.

Yes, it came out in May on AT&T but was released worldwide in April.
It's now a cool $99.99 which is a very good price considering it has a similar spec sheet to devices like the HTC One and S4 (all of them offer a Snapdragon 600 processor).

LG screens have always been some of the nicest so I expect this display to be the best or at least very close to the best.
