With the SID 2011 coming up next week, Samsung will be hoping to grab yet more of the spotlight with their WQXGA PenTile panel, which will be featuring in tablets and may even provide Apple with the display for the iPad 3.

Their recent attention has come from the newly announced Samsung 5 Series Chromebooks. Also hoping to steal some of the spotlight however is LG with their new ‘ultra high resolution’ LCD range. These will feature in TV, tablet and smartphones.

They use AH-IPS (Advanced High Performance In-Plane Switching) doubling the resolution in the average LCD displays. Though nothing has been given away about the resolution by LG yet, their 9.7” and 7” panels are likely to have a higher resolution than their previous 1024 x 768 panels.

LG could have something very promising to reveal at SID 2011 providing they have sorted their iPad 2 issues out. More about the displays can be found in the article by Chris Davies at Slashgear where you will also find a full press release. Click the link above to read it.
