Hitachi Shows 30 Percent Thinner LCD Touchscreen Prototype

With many manufacturers out there striving to get smaller and slimmer devices, it shouldn’t be too surprising to hear that Hitachi Displays is currently working on an LCD touchscreen display that is about 30 percent thinner than existing models. According to reports, the first prototype is only about 1.5mm thick and Hitachi was able to reduce the thickness of the touch panel portion of the display from 0.5mm to 0.1mm by removing glass substrate and other substances. Apparently its proprietary touchscreen control software will be able to supress the noise emission that comes with thinner displays. Mass production of these displays is expected to begin in the second half of 2011 and they’re expected to be used in smartphones and other devices.
