This resolution amounts to 300 DPI, and is far greater than any other tablet display on the market. In comparison, the current iPad has a resolution of 1,024 x 768 and the resolution of 1080p HD video is 1,920×1,080. Samsung claims that the PenTile technology used in the screen uses 40% less power than regular RGB stripe LCDs. This is possible because PenTile screens contain a separate colour channel for white, something that traditional LCD displays lack. Regular LCD displays create the colour white through a combination of other colours; this process can prove to be power intensive and battery draining since a large part of an image is usually white or a light based colour.
This display is not likely to be included in the next iPad, as Apple prefers to use in-plane switching (IPS) technology. It is very likely, however, that this display make an appearance in the next generation of Samsung’s Android powered tablets.
