Apple isn’t the only one to show off a notebook with a Retina display, Samsung has brought out another line up to their already very successful Series 9 line up of Notebooks, the Samsung Series 9 WQHD looks a lot like its predecessor but with one major difference, it has a stunning 2560 x 1440 display.  Both the 11.6 and 13.3 come with this resolution and seeing as the 15.1 inch Macbook Pro with Retina display has a resolution of 2880×1800 and the 2460 x1140 are on smaller display’s the pixel density will be roughly on par.

Samsung Series 9 with Retina Display – IFA 2012

The one thing that puts the Series 9 QWHD ahead of the Macbook Pro is that it comes with a matte display, if you’re looking at using your device on the go having a non glossy display is key.  We weren’t able to discern a price point or release date, but I would expect those details soon.

    Please, dont call it “Retina Display” its just a commercial fancy name from Apple to non-tech people just to says Hi Density Pixels… thanks!

    What’s the resolution on the 11.6 inch? Google didn’t tell me anything about it either.
    Off topic: Did you ditch Discus as a login option for comments? Why? Still see it on…
    I still can’t open videos in full screen. Any idea why? Am I the only one with that issue?

      It was also 2560 x 1440, but they are both prototypes.

      And we’re getting there on Discus! Bare with us :) I’ll also let the webmaster know about that issue! Thanks for letting me know.

    If the 11-incher has 2560×1440 resolution, then it has a much higher pixel density than the Macbook Pro Retina.
