At just 3mm thick, Samsung's latest 40-inch LED backlit LCD HDTV is as thin as Sony's XEL-1 OLED TV. It almost makes the 1-inch thin Panasonic Z1 Plasma look chubby, and Samsung's current LED LCD TVs (about 1.2-inches) look fat.

All we know right now is that the model you see has a 120Hz LCD panel, and 5000:1 contrast ratio. Oh, and Samsung hopes to push it out ASAP. I bet. [Akihabara News]
