Samsung tablets

New tablets to compete with iPad Air and iPad Mini in 2014, according to Korean press

In the early days of the Galaxy Tab line, Samsung released a couple of Android tablets with AMOLED screens — the Galaxy Tab 7.7 and 8.9 — but since then the company's tablet lineup has been a strictly LCD-only affair. That may be about to change in 2014, however, as reports from the Korean press suggest that Samsung Display is working on 8 and 10-inch AMOLED screens for high-end tablets, due for release in the new year.

Korea's Digital Daily reports that the new screens will be aimed squarely at high-end tablets to compete with Apple's iPad Air and iPad Mini, and will arrive around the same time as its next flagship smartphone. Samsung's budget tablets will continue to use LCD panels, according to the report, an approach which would mirror its smartphone display strategy.

As these reports are far from official, it's worth taking them with a pinch of salt for the moment. But it'll be interesting to see whether these new devices might bring about a return of the Galaxy Tab brand in the high-end tablet market. In 2013 the Tab 3 line consisted of mostly entry-level tablets, with the high end occupied by the stylus-toting Galaxy Note 8 and Note 10.1 2014 Edition.

... Or what? For god sakes, do you even know how to finish a sentence/proofread?

Still using that crappy Galaxy Nexus on that 3g network Sprint.

I must say you are sure up to date with reality today. Can't help but laugh at your inability to get current in 2013.

The best of everything flies past @squiddy20 every year. You and Sprint make a great couple.

Wow. I make an honest observation about something, and all you can come up with is petty, childish insults? For god sakes, you're 50+ years old. Act your age. How sad is it that a 22 year needs to say this?
I guess you've never heard of a 2 year contract? Or how about the fact that normal people think there are more important things in life than having a new cell phone every year, when each new cell phone will only bring modest improvements in hardware? You must have no life that you make such a big deal out of having "the latest and greatest" smartphone. You do realize you're talking about a <$350 carrier subsidized device, not a car or $2000 watch, right? What a joke.

Bahhhhhahahaha well fucking said! +1000000000 to you sir! Richard is an embarrassment to himself and all tech fans alike. I know 12 year olds who can come up with more intelligent shit to say than this d-bag. Pathetic.

Samsung made a 7" AMOLED (original galaxy tab) and a 7.7" AMOLED. They never made a tab 8.9 AMOLED.

luqman24 says:

Wish they'd use IPS panels instead. Colors look better andiit's easier to see outdoors in the sun.

Suntan says:

Meh. There's plenty of good options on the market for good IPS tablets.

If you don't want an AMOLED, buy a different brand.

Plot twitst, they're not for tablet but for their phones.

IIRC, the Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) and 8.0 already have better screen resolutions than the iPad and iPad Mini, respectively.

I can't wait for more CRAPOLED screens! They're the best thing since sliced bread! Light bulbs! And indoor plumbing!!!

Hmm..... AMOLED for tablets. Well better stay real close to a charger and never use your tablet outside in the sun. Outside sunny viewing has always been a problem on my Sammy phones with AMOLED screens.

why you need a charger..amoled uses the least amount of power of all screens ...
