Samsung is back to woo consumers with a new super high resolution display demonstrating a massive 2560 × 1600 pixel count. That’s a lot of pixels all crammed into a 10.1 inch screen. Compare those figures with the 1024 x 768 pixel resolution that the current iPad 2 boasts of and you may have an idea of what the future tablets and e-book readers with such high pixel density will be like.
The display was recently showcased at the FPD International event held in Yokohama, Japan, where Samsung officials revealed the building process uses an IGZO TFT oxide semiconductor. Other salient features of the latest Samsung display include a power consumption figure of 26mW excluding its backlight. The contrast ratio and brightness of the display are 500:1 and 300cd/m2 respectively, while for NTSC, the color gamut is greater than 70 percent. These are impressive figures indeed, and are making the prospect of a future Galaxy Tab sporting such displays really mouth-watering.
It’s also worth mentioning here that Samsung had unveiled a PenTile display back in May that also boasted of a whopping 2560 x 1600 pixels in a 10.1 inch display. Also, while its not known when the latest high resolution display could be seen in a commercially available product, we do know for sure the PenTile displays could be with us as early as 2012.
