The Guinness World Records' record for the Thinnest television, LCD, was set by LG Korea, which has created a fully hi-def (1,920 x 1,080 pixel) liquid-crystal display panel that is a mere 2.6 mm (0.10 in) thick thinner than a UK £1 coin. The 106-cm (42-in) screen uses an ultraslim LED blacklighting system, and the entire unit weighs just 4.2 kg (9 lb 4 oz).
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the thinnest laptop computer; it is the Windows 7 Dell Adamo XPS, which ranges between 9.7 mm (0.38 in) at its slimmest point to 10.3 mm (0.41 in) at its thickest – an average of 9.99 mm (0.39). It measures 340 x 273.9 x 9.99 mm (13.39 x 10.78 x .39 in).

Despite its compact nature, the phone features a metal uni-body design and crams a 2050mAh battery under the hood, the Trusted Reviews reported.
A mass of mid-range components are also present. With a 4.8-inch AMOLED display boasting a 1280 x 780p resolution, the phone's screen is coated in Gorilla Glass for added protection.
Powered by a MediaTek True Octa-core MT6592 processor, the Tornado 348 runs Google's latest Android OS, KitKat 4.4.2.
Images are handled by an 8-megapixel rear-mounted camera – with 1080p Full HD video recording capabilities – and a 5-megapixel front-facing snapper for selfie lovers.
The handset is to be offered in both black and white colours schemes, and, like all Kazam handsets, offers a free 12-month replacement plan on damaged screens.
