Samsung Electronics along with Nuovoyance revealed a new 10.1-inch tablet display that uses PenTile RGBW technology. The product will be presented next week at SID Display Week 2011 in California and we already have some pictures with the display (bellow). The new 10.1-inch display will be the first WQXGA display for tablets but we don’t know at the moment which ones will use it. One of the main features of the PenTile display is that it provides a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels, 300 ppi (pixel per inch), being the first ‘retina’-like display.
What makes this display different is that it uses RGBW instead of the normal RGB in the most displays around us. RGBW displays Red, Green and Blue colors adding support for White as well. The PenTile display it’s supposed to blow you away through its quality and image.
PenTile RGBW WQXGA Technology Highlights
- This 10.1-inch tablet panel is capable of 300 cd/m2 of luminance, yet uses 40 percent less power than that used by legacy RGB stripe LCDs in power-saving modes.
- An outdoor brightness mode of as much as 600 cd/m2 luminance enables viewing in bright ambient lighting.
- The display’s color gamut is 72 percent., allowing greater color realism than legacy RGB stripe tablet displays that have a typical color gamut of 55 percent NTSC.
- PenTile technology achieves 300 dpi resolution with two-thirds the number of subpixels, maintaining the VESA/ICDM display resolution standard.
Should we expect this technology on the upcoming Galaxy Tabs or any future ones ?
