Samsung Galaxy TabPRO 10.1 uses PenTile LCD display

All of Samsung’s newly announced Galaxy TabPRO tablets feature high-resolution screens (2,560×1,600), but it turns out that the 10.1-inch Galaxy TabPRO’s display might not be as sharp as the ones on the 8.4 and 12.2-inch TabPROs, as Samsung has opted to employ an LCD display with a PenTile RGBW matrix instead of the standard RGB pixel arrangement. While the RGBW layout results in higher brightness due to the inclusion of a White (W) subpixel, it also reduces the amount of Red, Green and Blue subpixels in each pixel, which means it doesn’t offer the same sharpness as a standard RGB layout.

Of course, on a 10.1-inch display with a resolution of 2,560×1,600, the PenTile effect won’t really be too pronounced or even noticeable in day-to-day use for most. But for those that have a knack for picking out individual pixels on their mobile displays, the Galaxy TabPRO 10.1’s screen might irk them in some scenarios, though hopefully the display’s otherwise great image quality will more than make up for the lack of sharpness.
