When Google released their Chromebook Pixel earlier this year, its pixel density topped anything on the market, including Apple's Retina MacBook. That could be set to change however, as Samsung is working on a display that could best both those devices.
According to a press release by the company, a pair of displays are planned for the Society for Information showcase at Vancouver this week. The displays include a 10.1" WQXGA panel with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 for tablets and a 13.3" WQXGA+ display with a 3200 x 1800 resolution for notebooks. By utilizing a decreased number of driver circuits and increased LED BLU efficiency, the duo will also deliver up to 30% energy savings compared to the current generation of displays.
These newest displays come on the heels of a recent announcement by Sharp, where they unveiled that they will begin producing IGZO panels with UltraHD resolutions for notebooks. It is not yet known if the panels will simply be displayed or will be included as part of actual products, but we should know more in the coming days.
