Samsung already makes netbooks and mini-laptops with 10.1″, 10.2″ and 12.1″ screens. Now it looks like the company could be working on an 11.6 incher. DigiTimes reports that Samsung and Dell have both placed orders for a new 11.6 inch screen from LCD panel maker Chunghwa Picture Tubes.
We’ve already seen evidence that Dell is building a machine with an 11.6 inch display, but this is the first I’ve heard of a Samsung model with that screen size. The screen would have a display resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels, and it’s designed to play well with Intel’s CULV processor line, so there’s a decent chance we’re not talking about an Intel Atom based machine here. Samsung Product Marketing Director Todd Bouman did say at a recent event that the company was looking at the CULV platform.
