Once unattainable, the full HD AMOLED display barrier has been broken by the introduction of the Samsung Galaxy S4. If you’re wondering when the technology will make its way to Android tablets, it looks like we’ll be seeing at least one tab from Samsung that will sport the extra high resolution AMOLED panel this year.

An unconfirmed report last week hinted that Samsung was considering releasing a 10.1- or 11.6-inch full HD AMOLED tablet, but the electronics giant reportedly has changed its mind. According to a Sam Mobile tipster, we can expect to see a new 8-inch slate instead, one that will boast an AMOLED display with a 1,900 x 1,200 resolution.

The tablet might be unveiled at the IFA 2013, which will be held in Berlin in September. It’s likely that we’ll see the Galaxy Note 3 there as well. After all, the Note 2 was launched at the same trade show last year.

While this sounds exciting, it’s best to take the latest report with a heap of salt, at least until we hear it directly from Sammy. Do you think the rumored 8-incher will end up becoming the sequel to the Galaxy Note 8.0?

    Surprised that the Note 8.0 didn’t come out with FHD, it’s true pricey for a 1280x device.

    Amoled might be the future but right now it is far from delivering the promised performance and quality.

  • Amazing!

    Only way it can be the sequel is if they actually “release” the Note 8.0 for sale first…LOL.

    The Note 3 is going to be announced sooner since the the S4 announcement was moved up.

    iPad is the best friend I’ve ever got just Hold it in your hand and you are hooked by its size, feather weight and sheer quality. Apple was late with the iPad mini but in my view they really have hit the spot.

    I am just puzzled at the whole economics of this sort. All of us know that the best specs wins the game; and all these players seem to have the technology to come up with the highest specs but a few really dare. Why is this so?
    You see, Samsung is coming up with Galaxy Note 8 but with a lower graphics comparing to Nexus 7. They should know that tablets are primarily meant for reading (as replacement of ebook readers); and the clearer the view, the more it will sell.
    Now Samsung with the full HD? Why can’t they simply put this on the Galaxy Note 8? Ah, I think its all economics.
    Apple is just the same. Retina on IPad Mini, why not put this on IPad Mini (one)? In this to create the need for the IPad Mini two?
    As a consumer, are we simply blind addicts???
