The bendy TV so thin and light you can hang it on the wall using MAGNETS: Screen is less than 1mm thick and weighs as much as a laptop LG's 55-inch screen is less than 1mm thick, and weighs 1.9kg (4lbs) Instead of a cumbersome mount, it is simply placed on wall using magnets Display is a prototype but LG is hoping the technology will become popular Mounting a flat screen TV on the wall can be expensive and time consuming - and makes it very hard to redesign your room. However, LG believes it has a solution. The electronics giant has shown off an ultrathin 'wallpaper TV' less than 1mm thick, and at 1.9kg (4lbs) is so light it can be attached to the wall using just magnets. LG Display said the OLED TV is at the moment just a concept. The ultrathin 'wallpaper TV' is less than 1mm thick, and at 1.9kg (4lbs) it is so light it can be attached to the wall using magnets. The concept set was unveiled at a press event in Korea. OLED stands for organic light-emitting diode. Its panels are made from organic materials that emit light when electricity is applied to them. As a result, OLED panels don't use a backlight meaning they are thinner than LCD displays. OLEDs additionally have bright colours, brilliant contrasts and a wide-viewing angle. The nascent technology involves incorporating a film of tiny light-emitting crystals into regular liquid crystal displays (LCD). The manufacturing process is relatively straightforward and offers improved picture quality at much cheaper cost than using organic light-emitting diodes (OLED). The resulting lower prices could help the technology catch on far quicker. One industry analyst estimated a 55-inch quantum dot TV could be priced 30 to 35 percent more than a current LCD TV, while an OLED TV could be 5 times more expensive. LG recently launched a 65-inch ultra-high definition OLED TV for 12 million won ($11,350) in its home market of South Korea.
