Samsung Aiming for 11K Displays- Target Uses Are Phones, TVS, VR, 3D

Posted by at 9:46 am on July 10, 2015

Samsung Display has started working on a mobile phone display that is over four times sharper than today’s highest-resolution (quad-HD) displays.

The new display would have a pixel density of 2,250 ppi (pixels per inch), compared to just over 500 ppi for today’s quad-HD displays. By another measurement, if quad-HD qualifies as “2K”, this new display would be “11K” resolution, with far more pixels than today’s 4K UHD televisions.

Samsung claims this sharpness would enable a 3D effect without glasses. The company hopes to have a prototype ready by early 2018.

If used in VR applications – such as a phone paired with Samsung’s Gear VR accessory – such a display would dramatically improve visible resolution. The lenses in VR goggles magnify the display such that pixels are clearly visible even with today’s best quad-HD displays.

Samsung displays are also used in Oculus Rift VR goggles.
