Samsung is considering building a fab to produce AMOLED screens for tablets
oversaturated. But if Samsung is right, they will need to build a fab larger than the 5.5-Gen (1300 x 1500mm) and the 8-Gen (2200 x 2500mm) lines that it currently uses. A size of 6.5-Gen (1500 x 1800mm) is expected to produce the tablet sized AMOLED screens.
The new line would be the A3 line in Tang jeong, Chungcheongnam-do in South Korea. Originally, the tech titan thought about adding another 5,5-Gen line, but is now weighing the possibility of building the medium sized AMOLED display. The final decision will be sometime later this year which means production probably wouldn't start until next year.

Dont be an Ignor-Anus!
AMOLED screens for tabs will totally be awesome...games, multimedia content will look that much richer and it'll be less straining on the eyes too making reading on tablets a joy!!!
So think before you open that pie-hole in your face!

I like Super AMOLED as Samsung do provide a number of color profiles selection including the natural selection.
I wish more brands would do that, give customer choice. Gaming profile, photo profile, standard profile..etc

Go Sammy, Samsung is to open a new factory which means more jobs for the Koreans... Sure would be nice if that Big American iphone Company could support its ppl as well... If i'm not mistaken Samsung employs more American then Apple in America... But i guess it's cheaper to outsource... I would really like to know the numbers...

I thought all the "professional" monitors used IPS panels?

Samsung is on top of technology in many ways, but I really hope they start bringing FHD screens to their tablets (like the nexus 10 and their next galaxy tab 3), but also on their 7-8inch tablets.

people always complained that the screen of super amoled just oversaturated.. please f**k off.. that's what amoled screen supposed to be.. we're not talking about lcd here... if you want neutral colors and greyish black then just stay with your lcd screen..

Actually, that is not true. The saturation of AMOLEDs can be easily be manipulated with. For example I have manipulated my SGS1 colors and the colors now look more natural and the white is much better now. Actually when I compare it to Iphone 4s, which I have two in my house, my SGS1 has the same good white, while much much better contrast.
The AMOLEDs Plus are the future, it can take much less battery, more responsive, much higher refresh rate and OLEDs are even flexible so in a couple of years, it would be possible to make a phone in like a pen and just fold up the screen, while having the actual phone in the pen.

i know and completely agree with you.. honestly i just explained the true purpose of an amoled screen.. it's to provide contrast and color much more vibrant than the lcd one.. and of course we can manipulate any android phone's screen by rooting or using screen calibration..

OLED based displays has more and bigger problems than just not natural colours.

I've been waiting for the day when samsung started using Amoled screen in their tablets. Could you imagine the nexus 10 with a Super Amoled display? It would be insane.

i have seen side by side comparisons of amoled and lcd display , but i need to say amoled are badass in the game ..the colors are richer and blacks are deep .if u want just warm tone dislay then go with normal lcds ,
