Following recent reports that Samsung is hard at work on 8 and 10-inch AMOLED panels for future handheld devices, an article in Korea's ETNews today raises the possibility of such a tablet arriving as early as January. The report claims the device will be a 10.5-inch tablet, potentially making it one of the largest in Samsung's portfolio. Earlier rumblings point to the 10-incher being positioned as a rival to Apple's iPad Air, suggesting the device might well feature a super-high resolution AMOLED panel. ETNews writes that Samsung hopes to sell around ten time as many of these new tablets as its last AMOLED-based slate, the Galaxy Tab 7.7. That device shifted just 500,000 units, the outlet reports.
If Samsung is to unveil a new 10.5-inch AMOLED tablet next month then CES 2014 would be one possible launch venue. Naturally, we'll be on the ground in Las Vegas next month to bring you full coverage of any new Android devices at the show.
