Samsung shows off 2560x1600 tablet display

Written by


10 inches for Jobs’ Mob
Samsung is working on a revolutionary high resolution display designed specifically for tablets and it might even end up in Apple’s new iPad 3, along with new Samsung tablets.

The display boasts a 2560 by 1600 resolution, or WQXGA if you don’t mind tying your tongue into a knot like a boy scout. It is worth noting that the display delivers a pixel density of 300 pixels per inch, well within Apple’s Retina standard outlined last year.

The display is the first to utilize Samsung’s PenTile technology that promises to deliver a 40-percent drop in power consumption and improved display quality.

Samsung is planning to use the new display in its Galaxy Tab series, which is currently sporting 10-inch screens in 1280x800. However, if Apple were to go for the new screen, it might need a different version, probably in 2048x1536.

Wait... so we can get 10in displays in this resolution but for years people have been asking for them in 20 to 24in monitors and the ideas been ignored. For shame Samsung, for shame.

Personally, as the owner of a 30" monitor with 2560x1600 resolution, I feel that a 24" monitor doesn't need the pixel density that 2560x1600 would bring for being seen at a typical 25-45cm viewing distance ... maybe a little higher than 1920x1200 would be good though.

Heh - I thought this comment might get bashed down. More is better if it's worth it - we'll see if this high pixel pitch screen will carry a price premium and/or lower pixel pitch screens get discounted (or even lower power usage for longer battery life).

As much as I like my 1920x1200 screen, I wouldn't mind it being doubled. It's not as if everything would need to be half the size- look at phones. Their screens simply look sharper with a higher resolution. I hope that PC users soon get the same treatment. 4k ftw!

I agree with ogreslayer. More pixels is better pixels. I had an expensive Mitsubishi 17" CRT monitor back in the 90's. It could do 1600x1200, and it looked best at 1600x1200, hands down.

1280x800 is already 50% higher then most PC screens (~100DPI, I.E. 1920x1080@23 inches, 1680x1050@20 inches) this whole DPI battle is silly. Anything over 100 is perfectly fine. Besides, from what I've seen, pentile screens have the pixels arranged in a jagged way so stuff looks weird, or at least that's how it was with the nexus one's.

How about releasing an anti-glare screen that's bright enough to use outside, you know, cause these tablets are supposed to be PORTABLE. The screen could have a DPI of 1,000, if the sun completely washes out the picture, It still looks like crap.

Agreed, but seems like 20 to 24 inch Super Amloed screen would cost a bomb...

Not as expensive as a 30 inch one though making 2560x1600 screens more affordable for everyone else. I would love to have one, but can't spend that much.

I dont really see the point :/
Even 800-600 looks pretty decent on a small screen and doesnt need as good hardware as bigger res.

Couldn't some of you guys coming out against (or unobsessed) with higher res screens please have considered giving my comment a +1 ?! :P
