SID 2011 | Samsung and LG might show off high res LCD panels during SID
Samsung jumps into the high pixel density display bandwagon along with LG which already has a sizeable market share in its pocket. The iPhone uses LG’s retina display panel, Samsung has its own super AMOLED technology. But now both the Korean electronics giants plan to start manufacturing extra-high resolution display panels very soon, even plan to showcase them during the SID display week in LA starting May 17-19th. In fact we already have the news that Samsung is going to ship a massive 2560 x 1600 pixels worth of screen by the end of this year.
The above mentioned resolution should be seen in a 10.1” 300ppi prototype LCD panel. And do not think it will be a battery guzzler, because Samsung promises to use a battery friendly PenTile RGBW matrix – as reported by Engadget. This display technology operates at up to 40 percent less power than conventionals, but giving out an incredible luminance of 300cd/m2. This technology will also make the screen more legible under direct sunlight as the brightness mode goes up to as much as 600cd/m2.
With LG rumors are vaguer, with no mention of any particular display resolution. But the company plans to bring out ultra-high resolution panels in sizes of 3.5-, 4.5-, 7-, 9.7, 55-, and 84”. Looking at LG’s achievement of the brilliant 336ppi retina display on the iPhone 4 – they should be ready with something equally exhilarating as that of Samsung’s.
