It sports LED backlighting, but whether edge lighting or local dimming is featured is unannounced at this point. It offers a 40” screen and a depth of only 3.9mm. For comparison, a standard #2 pencil is 6mm thick, and Samsung’s new display is less than 2/3 the size.
Samsung’s new backlit LCD doesn’t add a lot of functionality, nor does it promise an improvement in picture quality, but we can’t argue with the fact that it’s really impressively thin. They’ll certainly be eager to get this to market, but as of yet further details including pricing and availability remain unannounced.
