5 Reasons to be Excited about WQXGA

This panel has a dot pitch of 300 dpi, which is as high as the highest resolution smartphone on the market today – and it’s in a 10.1” diagonal.

This allows for more than 5x the data of the display on other leading tablet displays. You’ll be able to watch an HD video at full resolution and still have room for other applications on the same screen. It’s amazing. Plus, all of this is possible while still operating at about 60% the power of an equivalent RGB stripe display.

Which makes the following five exciting things now possible:

  1. Detailed maps for the big view prior to zoom
  2. HDTV sports – plus stats on the same screen
  3. Magazine quality text and photos
  4. Photo editing with detailed thumbnails
  5. Portable repair manuals with details, charts and drawings

WQXGA: What People are Saying

“The debate about when a “retina display” for tablets will exist is over: Samsung’s new 10.1-inch, 2560×1600 display is it. With a crazy pixel density of 300dpi, it rivals what Apple considers a retina display for a phone. But it’s for tablets… Our eyeballs can’t wait.”

“So what does all this mean to consumers? Basically — we’re going to be getting some seriously high quality displays in some of the upcoming tablets. Luckily for us, those displays will be lighter and 40 percent more power-efficient. Which, is a great thing — that stuff leads to lighter, visually better and longer lasting tablets.”
