Samsung display

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.

  1. these are all the tablets for the 1%,,,where are all the so called”cheap tablets ‘ coming out for the “common folk’….dont see them…….manuf will never learn !!!!!!!!!!

  2. Wow. This will be really nice if I was able to afford it. The display, along with battery life, should be priority. For me software is pretty much what I need so far.

  3. I’m still waiting for the first 20″+ LCD that has 300dpi… I have a long wait I think.

  4. The reason that 10 inch and 7 inch devices have been pushed so hard in the marketplace is that the two canonical “high resolution milestones” of 2560×1600 and 1920×1200 (or rather 1920×1080) just so happen to just surpass the magic value of 300PPI when applied to those screen sizes respectively.  300PPI is an important standard in display manufacturing in terms of displayed objects being “indistinguishable from reality” subject to specific, standardized assumptions.  If you’re an idiot, then you think that this is synonymous with “retina display”, which is a marketing term that Apple made up for this pre-existing standard despite the fact that it wasn’t even first OEM to offer this level of PPI to consumers (far from it, actually), even in a phone (Toshiba Portege G900).
