It was just last Fall that Apple announced the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display but Apple is already facing some competition from the likes of Google’s Chromebook Pixel and now Samsung is getting in on the game.
This morning Samsung announced that it is manufacturing a 13.3-inch display that will have higher pixel densities than both the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro and the Chromebook Pixel.
The 13.3-inch QHD display panel has a resolution of 3200 x 1800, making for a pixel density of 276 pixels-per-inch (PPI). The 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro has a pixel density of 227 PPI and the Chromebook Pixel claims 239 PPI.
Other competitors are hurrying into the market too. The Verge notes that Sharp’s high-pixel density IGZO displays should hit the market soon in 11.6-inch, 14-inch, and 15.6-inch variants. Toshiba’s also working on a 13.3-inch 2560 x 1440 display.
