CES in recent years has been a screen-lover's heaven, with the world's leading tech firms flooding Las Vegas with the very latest in display tech on everything from pocketable mobile gizmos to room-filling home cinemas.
And LG will be well represented at both ends of the scale at this year's Vegas event, with the highlights for the mobile fan set to include a 5.5in full HD phablet screen and a 4.7in unit boasting a bezel just 1mm thick.
Screen sizes on mobile devices just keep getting bigger and bigger, and in lieu of a fashion revolution that fundamentally redefines the acceptable size of the pocket, the key to making these big-screened mobile beast's workable lies in minimising the area around the screen – the bezel.
LG's new 4.7in panel has just that notion in mind. Its 1mm bezel means theoretically being able to produce a 4.7in device with a smaller footprint than existing phones with, say, 4.3in screens, which sounds like a decent idea... well, in theory anyway.
LG will also be showing off a 5.5in full HD phablet screen in Vegas, which isn't quite a match for the 5in 1080p panels we're seeing emerging right now but still boasts a more than decent 403ppi pixel density.
We're also expecting a 7in panel with a 1,920 x 1,200 resolution, a prospect that surely will find its way into some actual products sooner rather than later given the lack of decent screens on most 7in tablets.
Of course there will also be plenty of bigger tellies, monitors and the like boasting 4K2K resolutions and all that fancy stuff (such as the kit the fine Korean lass in the above pic is showing off), but even looking just at the more compact displays, LG is entering into 2013 clearly looking at upping the competition for a certain other Korean firm on the display panel front.
