Quick Hit: Samsung’s New WQXGA Debuting This Week


Samsung is planning to unveil it’s new display technology which will offer tablets in the 10.1 screen size range to compete with the quality of smaller cell phone displays.

The new screen will feature a 2560 x 1600 resolution at 300 dpi which is only 27 dpi short of Apples patented retina display. Besides the super high-quality of the new screens, Samsung boasts that they will consume 40% less power than the tablet displays on the market today.

Samsung is expecting to make the displays available to manufactures later this year and there’s no doubt that the first device to offer it will probably be their own Galaxy tablet. Some people are speculating that this new display tech might make it onto the iPad 3, but relationships are pretty strained between Apple and Samsung so that’s kind of a long shot in my opinion. Plus there’s no reason not to think that Apple is working on their own super high-def display for that device. There have also been some complaints about PenTile displays, (which use a pixel layout like to 5 on a 5 sided die) making pixels a little fuzzy, so it could be a step back from the retina display I’m sure Apple is hoping to get onto the iPad 3.

I guess we’ll have to wait and see once this hit’s devices if those complaints are valid in this case or if Samsung found a workaround for that particular problem.
