The Bluetooth SIG yesterday approved a previously unheard-of Samsung SM-T531 tablet. We noticed that its model number doesn’t correspond to any of the already unveiled Galaxy slates, so we tried to find more info about it. It turns out that Zauba (which lists products imported to India) has the SM-T531 in its database, describing it as a 10.1 inch tablet.
We also discovered a Samsung SM-T530 and a Samsung SM-T535, both listed as being 8-inch tablets. All three devices were imported to India last week for testing purposes.
The new model numbers are close to SM-T520 and SM-T525 - which are the Wi-Fi and LTE versions of the Galaxy TabPRO 10.1. However, it’s weird that they’re from the same SM-T53x series and yet have different display sizes. But maybe - just maybe - they’ll have the same display technology, if not the same size. We’re thinking Super AMOLED here. New Samsung Galaxy tablets with 8-inch and 10-inch AMOLED screens - this would make sense, especially since last year there were many rumors hinting at new AMOLED tablets made by Samsung. Naturally, we can't vouch for any of this at the moment, but we'll try to dig for more info, and let you know if we find anything.
Until now, Samsung released only one tablet that features an AMOLED display: the 2011 Galaxy Tab 7.7. Has the time for a renewal finally arrived?
