Samsung has come up with a new 10.1 inch display and it’s just amazing from technical aspects. However, this apart, the other thing about the new display that has aroused the greatest interest among tech enthusiasts is that it might well be the first glimpse of the famed retina display that they believe comes with the iPad 3.
Coming to the display: there are many reasons why it is so highly anticipated. Samsung is claiming an excellent WQXGA 2560 x 1600 resolution for the new 10.1-inch, 300dpi PenTile prototype display. This is far better than anything that can be availed of in any tablet device, though this isn’t all about the new display. For the PenTile also boasts of an enhanced brightness of 600 cd/m2 so as to facilitate its use in outdoor environments. Also, a color gamut range of 72 percent for the PenTile is also a lot better than the 55-percent NTSC that most LCD based tablet displays are capable of.
Samsung is claiming the PenTile RGBW technology has allowed them to achieve a resolution of 300 dpi in spite of it having only two-third the number of subpixels found in the conventional RGB stripe LCD. Or to put that in plain layman terms, all of this boils down to a far batter display while power consumption is just 40 percent of what it takes now. Then the display’s also also a lot thinner, which in turn means less weight.
Now as for the availability of tablet devices laced with the new PenTile display, Samsung has said it will be around the later half of this year. However, Samsung will have the PenTile display for public consumption during next week’s SID 2011 event.
