Samsung's PenTile brings retina display to tablets

Retina display coming to all future tablets?

The next stage in display of tablets has been announced by Samsung.

Samsung has released details on a prototype display called PenTile, which will bring a retina display to its future tablets.

It may not have come to the iPad 2 but Samsung has shown it is possible with the news of a high resolution display for their tablet, the 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab.

The display boasts a 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution, something that a number of leading all-in-one computers still lack.

Samsung has achieved the feat. by placing 300 pixels in a single inch, leaving them so dense that the majority ot people will not be able to distinguish between each pixel with their naked eye.

Along with the increased resolution Samsung claims that the power management has improved despite the added strain on the battery; a potent combination for any mobile display.

Currently, PenTile is not officially scheduled for any future tablets, but a commercial version is likely to be available later this year.

The advancement will bring a comparison to the iPhone 4's retina display which was absent from the iPad 2; a fact that has left many anticipating the iPad 3 will incorporate a higher resolution.
