Samsung planning Retina Displays and glasses-free 3D for tablets by 2015

By Chris Cook - Mar 24, 2011

With the tablet competition heating up, Samsung are looking to be the closest competitors to Apple’s ever so popular iPads. The future that Samsung are foretelling looks like the company could even better the Apple devices when it comes to the display.

With the release of the iPad 2, although they’re selling like hotcakes, there was an element of disappointment surrounding the lack of retina level display. In the news we have today Samsung has revealed their strategy for screen development from now until 2015.

They claim to have developed a tablet with a 300-400 pixel-per-inch resolution displays. One of the current tablets that they have, the 7” Galaxy Tab has a 1024 x 600 display which is only 170ppi but claim with pixel density increasing they could stretch a similar sized display to over 1080p.

All this while still maintaining up to 10 hour’s battery life. Also something that could feature in Samsung’s future plans is a possible stereoscopic 3D tablet with a display that would produce 3D images without the need for 3D glasses.
