Samsung 8.0” full HD AMOLED tablet screen coming on time, 10.1” AMOLED display delayed
Samsung launched the first tablet with AMOLED screen, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 more than a year ago, and this year the company plans to launch a successor with an 8-inch full HD (1920 x 1200 pixel) screen, according to SamMobile’s sources. Previous rumors also speculated about the arrival of a 10.1-inch or 11.6-inch AMOLED display, but plans for those were delayed allegedly because of problems with making a high-res screen of that size.

Interestingly, Samsung is said to also bring a tablet that will match the extremely high 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution of the Nexus 10 (which is by the way made by Samsung also).

Expectations are for these devices to make an official appearance at IFA 2013 taking place from September 6th to 11th in Berlin.

However, since the alleged Galaxy Note III is also expected to appear around that time Samsung might move the tablet launches a bit to make space for its new phablet. This all sounds logical and true, but we should not forget that nothing is official just yet.

Finally, they are coming, something to justify the prices, because now everyone knows that quality tablets can be made for budget, so now higher prices tabs would be the ones with AMOLED Screens. Awesome, now who would like to say that iPaD is still the Tablet King?

Nice. I was planning on getting a tablet soon, and was looking hard at the Note 8.0. But I want to wait to see what the Nexus 7 2 was going to have. Now I guess I'll have to wait until September. I don't need the S-pen.

Go Samsung. I can't wait for a tablet sized amoled display. I'll definitely be getting rid of my nexus 10 to get the new galaxy tab in September. I do hope they kinda follow the nexus 10 design and give the galaxy tab 3 nice rounded corners.

The news doesn't add up. The older phonearena article said that the 2560 x 1600 AMOLED display was ready for production even before the Nexus 10 LCD.

I guess they need all the material for the GS4 and the 10.1 inch AMOLED is no longer ready for commercial production.

Looks like Apple's new iPad Mini Retina beat Samsung to the marketplace. Wonder how much Samsung will charge and if it going to be the same form factor or is it going to be the landscape 16:9 or 16:10 form factor. I hope it the former!
