What Retina Display? Samsung’s Exhibiting An Insanely High Resolution Display

Samsung today announced that they will be showcasing various industry-leading technologies at the Society for Information Display’s Display Week 2013.

Amongst these technologies will be a 13.3-inch laptop, boasting a display with a 3,200 x 1,800 pixel resolution.

Putting It In Perspective

To give these numbers a little more perspective, the new 13-inch retina MacBook Pro has a maximum resolution of 2,560 x 1,600 and the Google Chromebook boasts an insane 2560 x 1700.

In addition to that, the much larger 27″ iMac outputs a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution. So now you can go ahead and take a moment to imagine all of those pixels in to a 13-inch screen… and then some.

The truth is, it may be pointless to have that kind of resolution for most day-to-day tasks. Even so, it’s nice to know that you have the ability to use all of those extra pixels should you need it. One way or another, I’ll be waiting for the day when they release those kinds of resolutions for 27″ displays.


What would you do with all of those pixels?
