Samsung SM-T535, SM-T531 and SM-T530 might be new Galaxy tablets
Samsung announced no less than five tablets this month (and year), and yet it might introduce new ones in the near future.

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?

Until they conquered the whole Galaxy with overflooded Galaxy devices.
These are probably with S-Amoled screens, with theirs naming of P600 and mine best guesses.
SM-T530 = WiFi (Exynos)
SM-T531 = 3G (Exynos)
SM-T535 = LTE (Qualcomm)

Soon we all see GDevices everywhere and will dreams (nightmare) about it too while asleep. -.-

They just came out with a bunch and now we have have information about more tablets?
Will they be called the Tab Mega Pro...

I'm glad the Tab and Note Pro line came out because they now have ultra high res displays and flagship specs, but that it. If these SM-T53x really are the upcoming tablets, what are the point of having them so soon?

That would be awesome. A new Nexus 10 needs to come out. It has been a long time.

Since we're all speculating...

What if the SM-T530 & SM-T535 turn out to be a Samsung based Nexus 8 in a WiFi & WiFi/LTE flavors while the 10.1 SM-T531 turns out to be the long away Nexus 10 refresh? This all may sound like a reach, but considering Samsung just announced 4 new TouchWiz based tablets recently & their Galaxy Tab 3 line isn't even a year old yet, it sounds like the only reasonable conclusion I could draw from all the madness.

I hope one of the new tablets is the new version of the Note 8.0!
