Samsung Series 9 laptop prototype has 2560x1440 display

Is Apple finally getting some competition for its MacBook Pro Retina display? It sure looks like Samsung is going to give Apple a run for its money in the near future. As part of ths IFA trade show in Berlin today, the company was showing off a prototype of a new Series 9 notebook running on Windows 8 with a super high resolution display.

How high? According to the YouTube video on MobileGeeks.com, The Samsung Series 9 WQHD's resolution taps out at 2560x1440. While that's still short of the MacBook Pro's 2880x1800 resolution, it's definitely a step in the right direction. Furthermore, the screen itself has a matte finish, which should make it very easy to view without a lot of glare.

Unfortunately, there's no word when we can expect to see this version of the laptop on store shelves or how much it will cost, but you can bet this won't be the last Windows notebook with such a high resolution screen.
