As companies continually improve smartphone and tablet displays, the next battleground is slowly moving toward high resolution laptop screens. And not even Google’s Chromebook Pixel, which has a resolution of 2560 x 1700-pixels, has the highest PPI around. That distinction belongs to Samsung with its new 13.3-inch QHD 3200 x 1800-pixel displays that could wind up on your next ultrabook.
With a 276 PPI—greater than Apple’s 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro with Retina display (227 PPI) and Google’s Chromebook Pixel (239 PPI)—Samsung’s new screens are incredibly dense and more power efficient than existing LCD screens, according to the company.
Samsung didn’t reveal what it intends to do with its new tech—perhaps it will show up in an ultrabook or two—but it already plans to exhibit the screens later this month at the Display Week conference in Vancouver.
