Smartphones and tablet screens are getting sharper and sharper. A number of 9 and10 inch tablets have 1280 x 800 pixel displays, while 960 x 640 pixel screens are becoming the new QVGA. But this might just be the tip of the iceberg. Engadget reports that Samsung envisions a future where tablets with 7 inch and larger displays have pixel densities of up to 400ppi, which would rival or exceed the high resolution 326ppi retina display on Apple’s 3.5 inch iPhone and iPod touch.
It could take a little while before we reach that point. Samsung’s roadmap stretches out to 2015 and the slides Engadget captured aren’t real firm on the timeline for launching these higher resolution screens. But the future’s looking bright… or at least sharp.
