Recently, at an analyst meet in South Korea, JK Shin, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications at Samsung had revealed that company would renew its focus on tablets. Following the strategy, it seems, the South Korean manufacturer is gearing up to introduce its new tablets featuring 8-inch and 10-inch AMOLED displays.
Korean publication Naver claims that Samsung would start mass producing AMOLED displays in 8-inch and 10-inch sizes in early 2014. Further, the site speculates that Samsung might launch one of the two models (8-inch and 10-inch) alongside the 2014 flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S5 early next year.
Notably, Samsung has been using LCD displays for its mid-range Galaxy Tab 3 range, while it uses AMOLED display in the high-end tablets. Considering that Samsung has been using AMOLED in its premium range of tablet, we could assume that the alleged tablets with 8-inch and 10-inch AMOLED displays would be priced accordingly.
Samsung has also been rumoured to be working on a tablet sporting a 12.2-inch display, and recently the alleged Galaxy Note 12.2 was spotted at the FCC.
Rumoured specifications of the alleged Galaxy Note 12.2 tablet include, well, a 12.2-inch display boasting a resolution of 2560×1600 pixels, a quad-core 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, and 3GB of RAM.
Also said to be on-board the Galaxy Note 12.2 tablet is 32GB of inbuilt storage, and an 8-megapixel rear camera alongside a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. The rumoured tablet is said to run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out-of-the-box.
Samsung has also been rumoured to be developing a 13.3-inch tablet that dual-boots Android and Windows RT.
