Samsung set to unveil new 7-inch Super AMOLED display in 2011

It’s pretty safe to say that the Samsung Galaxy Tab will be the best Android tablet option between now and the end of the year.  Yes, the price point is a bit high, but we have come across another good reason why you might wait for the next generation of the Galaxy Tab.  Samsung has just announced that they will debut their new 7-inch Super AMOLED display in two weeks at the FPD-International exhibit.

The new Super AMOLED display will feature a 1200 x 600 pixel resolution, making it slightly wider than the 1024 x 600 resolution display found on the Galaxy Tab.  Samsung Mobile Display is expecting to have the new 7-inch Super AMOLED display in full production by mid-2011.

There’s currently no hard evidence that Samsung will be using the new display on the next generation of the Galaxy Tab, but we would be pretty shocked if it didn’t turn out that way.  Samsung’s Super AMOLED technology allows for cheaper displays with brighter and saturated colors with higher refresh rates.  While all that may sound great, the main draw of the technology is that it uses significantly less power that traditional AMOLED which allows mobile devices to last longer on a single battery charge.

    1200×600?? This war on vertical pixels is getting silly. Making the iPad 1024×768 was a good decision by Apple; hopefully somebody will do the same in an Android tablet.

      It’s competition that drives technology to evolve. Apple can stick with their backwards ass for all I care. Imagine if Apple were the only computer/technology company in the whole world…**shudders**.

        Competition has nothing to do with oddly-shaped screens, though.

      While I don’t think 1024×768 is necessarily the best resolution (I’d prefer something like 16:10, slightly more “squarey” than the Galaxy Tab), 2:1 is certainly a very odd ratio. Doesn’t sound like a good idea at all, I can’t think of many apps that would fit well in landscape.

    I go agree that a 1200 x 600 display is a bit unnecessary. a 16:9 aspect ratio is good, but no one really needs a 2:1 aspect ratio.
