Even though Samsung introduced four new high-end tablets at CES 2014 (Galaxy Note Pro 12.2, Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4, Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1, and Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2) and three new Galaxy Tab 4 tablets earlier this month, a new report shows that the Korean company is cooking up a new high-end Android-powered tablet with 10.5-inch Super AMOLED display.
The report comes from the folks at Sammobile who have a somewhat straight record when it comes to unannounced Samsung devices. The model number of the new Samsung tablet is SM-T800 and besides sporting the aforementioned 10.5-inch Super AMOLED display with 2560 x 1600 resolution, the device will allegedly pack quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor or an Exynos SoC depending on the market on which it's released.
The Samsung SM-T800 technical specifications list reportedly includes 2 GB of RAM, 8 MP primary camera, 2 MP user-facing shooter, and three storage options (16 / 32 / 64 GB). It might also arrive with support for microSD cards, microUSB 2.0, 7,900 mAh battery, and Android 4.4.2 out of the box, mist likely customized with Samsung's Magazine UI. Sammobile's source also mentioned that the SM-T800 will arrive in WiFi-only and WiFi+LTE variants.
For the time being, there's no word on when the SM-T800 will be released on the market, or what will be the name of the new device.
I guess it's pretty obvious that Samsung is aiming to flood the market with dozens of new tablets in an attempt to compete against Appel's iPad. But the large number of Android-powered tablets released by the Korean company also shows that Sammy is not too confident on their success, and instead of releasing "one tablet to rule them all" they are hope to bite big chunks of iPad's market share by differentiating their tablet line-up for the public.
