Sharp isn’t the only company working on 3200 x 1800 pixel laptop displays. Samsung just announced that it’s showing off a 13.3 inch laptop display with that same screen resolution with that same screen resolution.
Since Sharp’s model is actually a 14 inch screen, technically Samsung’s display is a little sharper (although it’ll probably consume a little more electricity than Sharp’s low-power IGZO screen).
The new high resolution laptop display is just one of the new screens Samsung is bringing to Display Week 2013 in Canada this week.
The company is also showcasing other high-resolution screens including the 4.99 inch, 1080p AMOLED screen found in the Galaxy S4 and the 10.1 inch, 2560 x 1600 pixel screen from the Google Nexus 10 tablet. Samsung is also showing an 85-inch, 3840 x 2160 pixel LCD TV, pictured above.
It’s not clear when we’ll start to see an actual laptop with the new Apple Retina-beating 3200 x 1800 pixel display, but since Samsung makes notebooks and not just displays, it’s a safe bet that one of the first devices sporting the screen will be a Samsung notebook.
