Last week Toshiba introduced a 6 inch display with a ridiculously sharp screen resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. Today Samsung introduced something slightly more likely to make it to market in the not-too-distant future: a 10.1 inch, 2560 x 1600 pixel screen.
The screen is an IGZO TFT LCD display which has the same physical dimensions as the screens found in many netbooks and tablets today — but most of those are 1280 x 800 pixel or lower resolution displays.
Samsung’s technology could eventually pave the way for tablets and notebooks with much higher pixel density, which would lead to sharper images, videos, and graphics on mobile devices. Unfortunately there’s no word on if or when Samsung will mass produce these screens.
The company is also showing off a 10.1 inch, 2560 x 1600 pixel PenTile screen — although some folks claim that Samsung inflates the number of pixels on PenTile screens. This screen could go into production in 2012.
