New Samsung 10.1-inch 2,560 x 1600px PenTile has Apple iPad Fans excited

Apple iPad 3 could sport this new hi-res display.

Samsung announced today the first 10.1-inch WQXGA (2560 x 1600px) format PenTile RGBW tablet display. The 10.1-inch 300 dpi display is ideal for applications that require extraordinary image and text clarity such as browsing the web and viewing high-definition movies, or reading books and spreadsheets. The iPhone 4 retina display has 326dpi. The new Samsung display would bring retina display quality ot the iPad 3. This has of course Apple iPad fans excited.

As this is still a prototype, I do not expect Samsung to be ready for mass production this year. An Apple iPad with 10.1-inch Retina display would earliest be ready in 2012. Note that the current iPad display is slightly smaller with 9.7-inch. That the iPad 3 would get a retina display was already a rumor earlier this year.

PenTile RGBW WQXGA Technology Highlights:

  • This 10.1-inch tablet panel is capable of 300 cd/m2 of luminance, yet uses 40% less power than that used by legacy RGB stripe LCDs in power-saving modes.
  • An outdoor brightness mode of as much as 600 cd/m2 luminance enables viewing in bright ambient lighting.
  • The display‚Äôs color gamut is 72 percent., allowing greater color realism than legacy RGB stripe tablet displays that have a typical color gamut of 55 percent NTSC.
  • PenTile technology achieves 300 dpi resolution with two-thirds the number of subpixels, maintaining the VESA/ICDM display resolution standard.

Samsung will demonstrate the 10.1-inch hi-res display prototype at the SID Display Week 2011 International Symposium on May 17-19 in LA.
