Back in December, rumors were swirling that Samsung was getting ready to unveil a 10.5-inch AMOLED tablet in early January. Once January came and went with no such announced, the rumors slowed.
Now, SamMobile is reporting that Samsung has begun work on the rumored tablet in a real way. According to the latest unconfirmed report, the it will have a display resolution of 2560×1600 pixels and, will come in Wi-Fi, 3G, and LTE variants.
Samsung released its first AMOLED-based tablet, the Galaxy Tab 7.7, in early 2011, but the tablet never gained much traction. Rumors now suggest Samsung could release a new AMOLED tablet with a screen size anywhere between eight and ten-inches.
AMOLED displays are used in televisions as well as mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. The technology uses significantly less power than its traditional OLED counterparts and has a higher refresh rate, which can minimize response times to milliseconds.
According to SamMobile, the rumored tablet will run on a Exynos 5 series processor and run Android 4.4.2 (KitKat) out of the box, with the Samsung Magazin UX overlay. The device is expected to come with a hefty price tag, and could be Samsung’s flagship when launched.
