Earlier this month we reported that Samsung has already released 7 new tablet models this year to date with a new one in the pipeline called the GALAXY Tab S. This new high-end model will be the world's first ever mobile device to feature WQXGA (2560×1600) AMOLED display. The AMOLED display technology is known for its low power consumption and high contrast levels. Today a Korean publication confirms that Samsung will unveil its new premium OLED tablets at a Samsung Unpacked event in New York on June 12.
The report states that "Samsung Display will provide OLED display technology for the premium tablets which outperform those using LCD displays in terms of picture quality and viewing experience," said Samsung officials.
Sources familiar with Samsung's plan states that "Samsung will release OLED tablets with two screen sizes ― 8.4 and 10.5 inches ― at the event." The other key feature coming to this tablet is a fingerprint scanner which was in the news yesterday with Senator Al Franken questioning Samsung's poor fingerprint security features.
Strategy Analytics expects Samsung to ship at least 10 million OLED tablets this year, taking a 14-percent portion of the total estimated tablet shipments. Samsung plans to ship a total of 80 million tablets this year.
