Samsung announced 10.1 screens for tablets with a screen resolution higher than 1080p. The first generation Galaxy Tab 10.1 barely has a 720p resolution screen. These new screens have a resolution of 2560 ×1600, higher than most computer monitors.
2560 x 1600 on a 10.1 inch screen comes out to around 300 ppi (pixels per inch). Which is exactly what Apple defined as a Retina Display.
The screens use a new PenTile technology that I could not even begin to explain, but basically the screens are to die for. Somehow these epic screens manage to drain less battery from a tablet than a standard LCD does. A complaint with many screens is outdoor visibility, apparently Samsung has rectified this problem with these new displays.
Now why doesn’t Samsung just put these screens on the first generation Galaxy Tab 10.1? Well first of all, who wants another delay on these awesome tablets? Second the current dual-core processors on the market are not capable of handling that high of a resolution. This fall Tegra 3 chips will be available, which should handle these screens like a champ.
