Samsung's 10.5-inch AMOLED tablet may come as early as next month, report says
If a new report from South Korean ETNews is to be believed, Samsung may be close to releasing a new 10.5-inch tablet as early as January next year.
Unlike the plethora of currently available tablets from the electronics giant, the new slate is expected to make a return to AMOLED panels after a long hiatus that started with the release of the 2011 Galaxy Tab 7.7. The report actually rung quite a few bells, as we've been hot on the heels of as many as four Samsung tablets, all of which are supposedly to be unleashed on the market in the upcoming year. These will range from 7'' all the way up to a whopping 13.3''convertible, and all but the smallest one are expected to ship packing the typical for Samsung AMOLED screens. Unfortunately, if this turns out to be true, it actually rules out the possibility for one of those sweet, super-crisp 4K (3840x2160) panels, courtesy of Japan Display.
Whether Samsung's new crop of tablets turn out to match the above description or not is actually of no difference, as it's more than likely that the company will continue its surge in the space, especially now that tablets are truly starting to take over.

I loved the Galaxy Tab 7.7
A refresh of that tablet would be a great thing.
A 2560x1600 10.5" AMOLED panel would look amazing for media consumption.

An AMOLED tablet would be an awesome thing to behold.

If this is true, it will be my next galaxy tab. I want a bigger size, 10.5 is well suited to me. My gtab 7.7 still working after almost 2 years of everyday use. Super amoled screen is the main reason why I bought gtab 7.7 playing hd games, watching videos, and surfing the net is really something to behold.
