Samsung is preparing an 8.4-inch 359ppi AMOLED tablet
We already told you that Samsung is working on the SM-T805 tablet, expected to offer an AMOLED display. Today we stumbled upon another piece of information, which hints us that the Korean giant is preparing yet another high-end AMOLED slate. A recent entry in the GFXBench benchmarking database shows that the Korean manufacturer is working on a tablet, bearing the SM-T700 model number. The 8.4” screen with resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels comes with excellent pixel density of 359 ppi, just as the already-released Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 (pictured in the thumbnail of this article), which comes with an IPS-LCD display. As a side comparison, the Apple iPad mini with Retina display sports a pixel density of 324ppi.

The other listed specifications of the Samsung SM-T700 tell us that it sports an octa-core Exynos 5 SoC, clocked at 1.9GHz. It features four ARM Cortex A15 and four ARM Cortex A7 cores, coupled together with the big.LITTLE technology, which provides greater power efficiency. The tablet sports 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The SM-T700 comes with a 7-megapixel camera on the back, whereas the front-facing snapper is a 2MP one. The GFXBench data also reveals that it is running the latest version of Android – KitKat 4.4.2.

Provided that these might be the first slates that are sporting an AMOLED display, we are more than eager to lay our hands on them and test them. What about you?

I have waited for tab 7.7 successor for a so long time. Samsung has disappointed me over and over time. Hope that not one more time.

Tab 7.7 is still one of the best tablet.

I hope it's better than GTab 7.7 in terms of design and build quality.

The only problem is Samsung had discontinued those premium design from GTab 7.7 and the trio Wave. I was just hoping that Samsung will bring that premium design again in future products to boost their sales.

This most likely will be the NotePro 8.4. TabPros and NotePro 12.2 already came out. Only thing was missing was an 8 inch Note tablet

I'm interested. Frankly, I have been slightly disappointed with my 8.4. Wayyy better than LG 8.3. However my 8.4 screen isn't as appealing as my Nexus 7 (a huge shock to me). Plus 8.4 won't let me run Android Runtime on KitKat. But I will always go look at the new Samsung screens, because you never know when one will just wow you.

Maybe this is the Nexus 8?!?! Google has been know to favor AMOLED displays. I would buy this day one, no questions asked.
