Earlier today, The Wall Street Journal published an interview with Samsung Mobile chief J.K. Shin
. At the end of the report (which confirms that the Galaxy S5
smartphone is off to a good start, sales-wise), The WSJ notes that Samsung is getting ready to introduce new tablets next month. More exactly, it’s said that the South Korean company plans “to launch a new line of tablets for the first time in New York on June 12 at Madison Square Garden as it attempts to catch up to rivals like Apple Inc.”
While the publication didn’t provide any other details on the matter, it’s likely that we’ll finally see new AMOLED tablets
from Samsung. As you may know, it’s said that Samsung has been working on new 8.4-inch and 10.5-inch tablets with AMOLED screens. In fact, we already saw the latter - the SM-T800
, which is pictured above and is expected to be called Galaxy Tab S 10.5
. As for the 8.4 inch model (SM-T700
), this should be called Galaxy Tab S 8.4.
Both upcoming slates should offer high-end features, including octa-core Exynos 5420 chipsets and 3GB of RAM. Although their displays differ in size, they will have the same pixel resolution: 2,560 x 1,600.
In addition to the report from WSJ, Russian website Hi-tech.mail.ru also has it that Samsung will unveil new tablets next month. However, the announcement date mentioned by this source is June 11, not June 12. Well, we'll be here to let you know what (and when) happens.
