Rumors of Samsung’s plans to return to producing more tablets with AMOLED displays go back as far as last year, but more recently things have really started heating up. Just last week we got our first look at the 10.5-inch Galaxy Tab S, and then shortly after this we also learned that an 8.4-inch and 13.3-inch variant were in the works.
As reports related to the Samsung Tab S family continue to increase in intensity, it seems pretty obvious that Samsung is moving closer towards an actual unveiling event. The big question is when. Within a recent WSJ interview with Samsung execs including JK Shin, we might have found the answer.
While the bulk of the article deals with the Galaxy S5 and its currently strong sales, it’s the very last sentence of the interview that has us really interested:
Samsung is also planning 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 neither Samsung nor the WSJ say for certain what the tablet event will showcase, it does say its a new line of devices. Putting two and two together, it seems rather likely that the Galaxy Tab S family could be at the core of this announcement. To our knowledge, Samsung has yet to reveal any other details about its plans for a tablet-related press announcement June 12th event, though we’ve reached out to Samsung for additional details and will update if and when we hear back.
If you interested in learning more about what to expect from the tablet, you’ll want to check out some of our previous Tab S coverage. So what do you think based on what we currently know, excited for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S series or not?
