Samsung to announce its new Galaxy Tab S AMOLED slates next month?

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 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.

2K can be either: 2048 × 1080 (this was the original 2K) 2048 × 858 1920 × 1080 2048 × 1152 2560 × 1440 2560 × 1600 So say 1440p or 1600p, its far more accurate than saying 2K

Why not the exynos 5422? I think the 5420 Is starting to get dated. I have it in my note 3 and it's not to bad but I think the 5422 is more future proof compared to the 5420.

It's based on 22nm I have the Note3 Eyxnos rooted over clocked at 2.5ghz The difference is amazing but battery rinses fast and doesn't last half the normal version

But why Exynos? That SoC is far from perfect

Get rid of those useless A7 cpu and you will have the powerful Cpu even S805 can't touch this Pure power of A15s

I agree with you. How did you overclock your note 3 to 2.5ghz? I would like to know if you don't mind sharing.

I'm guessing he flashed a custom kernel I flashed ElementalX for my Nexus 5, but I undervolted & underclocked Because I was getting ~3 hours screen on time, now I'm getting ~4 hours of screen on time It was very easy, I just flashed the zip from recovery Check XDA forums for some guides you could follow

Have you used the exynos 5420 in a device? It's blazing fast. I really think people underrate Samsung exynos CPU's. I've been using them since the s2. All my samsung phones have been exynos powered with the exception of the s3 and galaxy mega 6.3. The 5420 is a highly capable CPU. I would imagine the 5422 is even better.
