Move out of the way dual-core and quad-core CPUs, there’s a new frontier of hardware in town: the high-resolution display. With the iPhone 4 currently leading the charge with its 330PPI Retina Display, other manufacturers are starting to work on bumping up the pixel density on their own displays. LG — manufacturers of the iPhone 4 display — are set to launch a device with a 720p display (1280×720) over in South Korea in the next month or so, and we know Sony Ericsson have a device or two with high-resolution displays up their sleeves. But it’s Samsung who are going to be pushing their Super AMOLED technology up and beyond the 300PPI rating when they start the mass production of high-res Super AMOLED displays in the second half of 2012 — just in time for the Samsung Galaxy S III that is meant to have a 1280×1024 (what the fu-) 4.65-inch (352PPI) display.
This technology won’t be limited to just smartphones, it will also make its way to Samsung’s future tablets should Apple allow them to make a rectangle with a touchscreen, so that’s exciting. Overall it’s things like this that make me love and hate technology; I want it now, because when this technology launches next year there will be better stuff around the corner. Damn you, Samsung, I want my HD Super AMOLED Plus Extreme Overkill display now! Who else is a little bit excited?
