Samsung hard at work on 10.1- and 11.6-inch Full HD AMOLED display, says rumor
The rumor mill is firing up again. Only a day after hearing details about a Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Tab 3, Sam Mobile is reporting that they have information on a Galaxy Tab 3 Plus with a Super AMOLED Full HD display.
Samsung has seen a positive response regarding its AMOLED panels, which is why the company is getting ready to produce them on a larger scale. According to the publication, Samsung wants to make a high-end tablet that can compete with Apple’s and Sony’s premium tablets, the iPad and Xperia Tablet Z, respectively. While an exact screen size could not be confirmed, the insider suggests that the screen could be 10.1- or 11.6-inches in size.
Apparently, Samsung is hard at work developing the display and there are high chances of the Galaxy Note 3 Plus being unveiled at IFA in Berlin, Germany, along with the Galaxy Note 3.
Additionally, the insider confirmed that Samsung will be using an Exynos 5 generation chip in its upcoming premium line of tablets, which means that there are also high chances of the chip making its way into the Galaxy Note 3.
The Galaxy Tab 3 Plus makes a lot of sense considering that the only tablet Samsung really has competing at the premium level is the Nexus 10. The popularity of Samsung’s AMOLED displays has been immense, but I can’t help but wonder what happened to those flexible displays that we were supposed to see this year, although, Corning claims that flexible displays are at least three years out.
Keep in mind that these are just rumors and that they should be taken with a grain of salt. Hopefully we’ll be back with an update confirming their legitimacy soon though!
