Would my eyes be able to tell the difference?

I see these advances as most potentially useful in VR contexts; we've basically maxed out relevant screen resolution for normal displays in the effective arc lengths observable by the human eye.

I could see this tech being used in tandem with pre-foviated rendering in VR contexts to deliver extreme detail with efficient GPU usage.

I suppose with regards to OP question they would be able to see the difference in a thinner display with lower energy use, totally!

Here's what Professor Andrey Miroshnichenko had to say, u/PPatBoyd:

No but your wallet will!

It’s the thinnest and lightest ever. We think you’re gonna love it!

Thanks for the questions u/EMitch02, here's Professor Andrey Miroshnichenko.
