Samsung starts work on 11K display
Do you think that 4K resolution is cool? Well, how about 11K? Yes, this will perhaps become reality in the near future thanks to efforts by Samsung and 12 other companies plus the South Korean government.
The latest information that comes out of Samsung states that the South Korean company has started working on a display that will sport the insane 11K resolution. The exact size of this display is unknown (likely around 5.75 inches) but nevertheless we are talking about 11264 x 6336 pixels with pixel density of 2250 ppi. As a comparison the famous Apple Retina display on the iPhone 6 Plus offers just 401 ppi. In addition the awesome pixel density might bring a sense of depth for the images on the display, which might be a nice feature as well.
Of course we will not see the new display soon – the panel is expected sometime in year 2018 if not later given the Samsung team faces various tech difficulties. In addition there’s the question of actual practical usage but given that such a display becomes reality we are sure some companies will find a use for it.
