Samsung outshines Apple with 13″ notebook display packing a 3,200 x 1,800 resolution
A lot of great new tech will be featured during the “Society for Information Display’s Display Week 2013”. The device that has everyone buzzing however is a new display with an amazing resolution and power-consumption levels.
The week-long event takes place in the Vancouver Convention Centre. Among the screens Samsung plans to unveil is a Full HD (1920×1080) mobile AMOLED display “with the world’s broadest color gamut”, and an 85-inch Ultra HD (3840×2160) LCD TV panel with “extremely vivid color and low power consumption”. Samsung is also teasing a new “Diamond Pixel technology” along with a new LCD technology that “enables local-dimming control in direct LED-based LCD panels”.
Tech fans should also mark down the date to get a look at the world’s first mass-produced 4.99-inch Full HD mobile AMOLED display. Samsung states that it has a “94 percent average rate of reproduction for the Adobe RGB color space”. Samsung also pointed out that the Adobe RGB standard is “about 30 percent broader than general sRGB standards” in a press-release sent out earlier this morning. The Diamond Pixel technology we mentioned earlier is “based on the idea that the human retina reacts more to green than other colors, places more green than red and blue pixels in the pixel structure of AMOLED display panels” according to Samsung.
With the new technology, Samsung’s Full HD AMOLED display can provide text messages 2.2 times clearer than HD (1280×720) displays. So, when curvilinear letters on the panel are magnified two or three times, Samsung’s Diamond Pixel™ technology enables text to be reproduced more smoothly (fewer “jaggies”) and accurately than those produced with conventional LCD technology.
Samsung Display is also providing Display Week participants with firsthand experience comparing the color gamut, color accuracy and letter quality of Full HD AMOLED displays in a special “experience zone” within its booth. The booth will provide a clear comparison between AMOLED and LCD displays. Attendees can see not only true crisp colors in the intricate wing pattern of morpho butterfly images, but can also view an image of a strand of knitting wool so detailed that it can only be appreciated using a Full HD AMOLED display.
Samsung will also feature an 85-inch ultra HD TV panel showcases a LCD technology that enables local-dimming control in a direct LED-based LCD panel. The panel can save 30 percent of typical LED BLU power consumption. Its local-dimming control enables vivid color rendering including incredible black images, 80 percent brightness uniformity, and a remarkably-enhanced contrast ratio. Moving into “green technology,” Samsung Display is highlighting advanced power-saving solutions for smart mobile devices including smartphones and tablets. Here, Samsung Display has innovatively reduced power consumption of AMOLED display by enhancing the luminous efficacy of AMOLED pixels. Samsung Full HD AMOLED displays provide a 25 percent power-savings over that of existing HD AMOLED displays.
Samsung Display is also exhibiting a 10.1-inch WQXGA (2560 x 1600) LCD for tablets and a 13.3-inch WQXGA+ (3200 x 1800) LCD for notebooks, which each can deliver 30 percent greater power-savings than that of existing LCD tablet displays, by decreasing the number of driver circuits and increasing the efficiency of the LED BLU. Apple’s Macbook Pro with Retina display boasts a 2,560 x 1,600 pixel resolution.
Also, Samsung is spotlighting a 23-inch multi-touch LCD display that can detect 10 touch points simultaneously. The prototype enables playing of the piano with exceptional finesse, or drawing a highly detailed picture on a monitor or a tablet.
