Samsung to unveil 13.3-inch 3,200x1,800 LCD display

The new 13.3-inch WQXGA+ display would pack 276 pixels per inch, surpassing the pixel count found on existing notebooks.

Samsung will demo a new LCD screen that would top similar displays in resolution and pixel density, the company said Monday.

Geared for notebooks, the 13.3-inch WQXGA+ LCD display will offer a resolution of 3,200x1,800 pixels and a density of 276 pixels per inch. That surpasses the screen found on Apple's 13.3-inch Retina MacBook Pro, which provides a resolution of 2,560x1,600 pixels with 227 pixels per inch.

The new screen will appear at the Society for Information Display's annual exhibition, Display Week 2013. The event, which showcases display products, is running this week in Vancouver, Canada.

Also taking the stage will be a 10.1-inch WQXGA 2,560x1,600 LCD screen for tablets. Samsung promises a 30 percent increase in power savings on both screens compared with that of current tablet displays due to fewer circuits and greater efficiency of LED backlight units.

Other Samsung products on tap for Display Week 2013 are a 23-inch multi-touch LCD display that can detect 10 touch points at the same time, a 1,920x1,080 pixel 4.99-inch AMOLED display for mobile devices, and an 85-inch Ultra HD 3,840x2,160 pixel LCD TV panel.
