Just hours after CEO JK Shin told the WSJ Samsung would have a tablet event on June 12, the company is sending out official invitations for its Premiere 2014 event.

Samsung Premiere 2014 will take place at New York’s Madison Square Garden on June 12. The invitation now making the rounds does not mention any devices by name, but the clues it contains leave no doubt that Samsung will introduce its first AMOLED tablets in three years.

The “Tab Into Color” tag line and three primary color swatches are clear references to the vivid colors of AMOLED displays. But what exactly will we see?

Solid leaks suggest Samsung will be introducing two Galaxy Tab S devices with similar specs and 8.4-inch and 10.5-inch AMOLED displays respectively. The new tablet line will reportedly feature Exynos processors, 3GB of RAM, 8MP rear cameras, LTE connectivity, and fingerprint sensors embedded in their home buttons.

These high-end specifications will be packaged in a slim package whose design resembles the Galaxy S5’s.

Of course, the biggest deal about the new Tab S line is their AMOLED screens. Technology has come a long way since the days of the Galaxy Tab 7.7, Samsung’s only AMOLED tablet to date. With the AMOLED Galaxy S5, Samsung managed to create the best smartphone display ever, according to Display Mate. Adding to the well-known vivid colors and deep blacks of previous generations of AMOLED panels, Samsung improved brightness, contrast, outdoors usability, color accuracy, and power consumption to levels that no current LCD screen can match. In short, we can’t wait to try out this new breed of AMOLED on a large screen.

The only question that remains is will Samsung introduce any other products besides the Tab S tablets? Last year’s Premiere event saw the debut of Galaxy S4 mini, Galaxy S4 Active, Galaxy S4 Zoom, and several Windows devices. Will this year’s event focus just on two tablets, or is there something else on the menu?

Yes, we’re thinking about the Galaxy S5 Prime, rumored to launch around mid-June. Coincidence?

    I need this in my life :)

      Me to!

    • dodz

      its more like, I dont need this but I want this lol

      • MasterMuffin

        No I need this ;)

        • Toss3

          And we’ll see you here in 6 months complaining about Samsung not providing any updates. *sigh*

          • MasterMuffin

            I will if they don’t update this at all and if they don’t release all the sources in a usual Samsung way :/

          • Toss3

            With the amount of tablets they’ve been pushing out lately, I’d say it’s quite possible this won’t be seeing any updates anytime soon (4.4.3 and maybe even 4.5/5 around the corner). If I were you I’d wait for the HTC-built Nexus 8.

          • MasterMuffin

            But I want a big tablet and AMOLED

          • Anonymousfella

            How big?

          • MasterMuffin


          • Anonymousfella

            With 8k amoled screen? Purrrfect.

        • We’ll be there MasterMuffin, you have NO idea how many years I have waited for an AMOLED tablet with good specs. Finally, it’s going to come true! Remember the Galaxy Tab 7.7?

          • MasterMuffin

            10 years? :D
            I didn’t really pay attention to Samsung’s tablet offerings back then, so no I don’t remember it :)

          • It was an exceptional tablet, but handicapped by poor internals and a slower, more bogged down version of Android. But the AMOLED display really stood out. Toshiba bought them from Samsung for their offering, but both never became very successful. Hopefully this time around, it’s different.

          • MasterMuffin

            It won’t probably be popular, but it’ll be beautiful!

          • welshblood

            Remember the 7.7? I still have one!

      Look at this MasterMuffin…I think Samsung is becoming better and better. Touchwiz looks better on S5 (I like the Menu setup a lot) and takes up less MB and uses less RAM compared to S4 and now Samsung might ditch their Bloatware!!!!! The only app I will miss is their email app! If this is true then all of the haters of Samsung cant complain about bloat anymore!

      • MasterMuffin

        They’ll always complain :)

  • Jusephe

    Samsung improved brightness, contrast, outdoors usability, color accuracy, and power consumption to levels that no current LCD screen can match…. WHAT ????

    • Dibin Adukattil

      GS 5 disply as per tests

  • V-Phuc

    What happens to the GS Note 10.1 (2015Ed.)? No rumors about it? Samsung just streamlines their products. Too many things at the SAME level

    • Anonymousfella

      Maybe they’ll replace that product with this.

  • Aar0nC

    I really hope they sneak in and release the Galaxy S5 Prime into this even!!

  • AfrodanJ

    Sweet Jesus stop releasing Tablets Samsung!!! You say ‘Tap Into Colour’…I say ‘Oversaturation’

    • Anonymousfella

      Heard of Professional Mode in S5? It has the color accuracy of lcd display

  • jako

    Amoled tablets will have potentially mouth watering screens same as the phone screens. Either way hope this pushes down the price of the pro 8.4 hehe

  • J_O_N_A_T_H_A_N

    Can tolerate my nexus7 a couple more months if these smoke the tab pro 8.4.
    Truly looking forward to smooth multi window android. And don’t tell me to go Windows8. MS had their chance like a GM paint job full of sweat for all eternity.
