The cat and mouse race between Samsung and LG continues, with LG Display looking to best Samsung’s 22-inch transparent LCD from just a couple of weeks back with a transparent screen of its own. The company is showing off a huge 47-inch IPS LCD panel which as well as being transparent is capable of Full HD resolution.
As with Samsung’s panel, LG Display is targeting the screen technology at commercial implementations rather than something for your desk. The company reckons shopping malls and digital signage are the most likely uses, but we can’t quite lose our enthusiasm for LCD windows that can show us the headlines as well as the garden.
No word on when LG Display’s IPS LCD screens might be on sale, nor even if they’re in mass-production like Samsung’s smaller panels.
