Samsung-Thumb

People keeping up with Android over the years may have noticed that Samsung spits out a ton of devices. Heck, people who haven't been keeping up know that much, making this potentially the least surprising sentence I write all day: Samsung has more tablets on the way. We can expect the company to unveil them at the 2014 Galaxy Premiere event on June 12th. Invites have gone out, with attendees expected to show up at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

This new hardware will likely be the upcoming Galaxy Tab S line of tablets, which we've seen pictures of before. Models should include an 8.4-inch version and a larger, 10.5-inch, option. What makes these devices noteworthy are their AMOLED displays.

Hopefully the difference in color combined with the expected 2560×1600 resolution result in a couple of standout devices, because we're otherwise looking at hardware that isn't all that different from the Galaxy Note Pro and Tab Pro line of devices. At least we should have just under a month now to wait and see.

    Still with the physical buttons? Nuts. Might as well see what the next Nexus tablet will be. Even a GPE of the Samsung tablets aren't that appealing with physical buttons.

    I wouldn't mind those buttons as much on a phone, but on a tablet? I go from landscape to portrait all the time while using my current Nexus 10. Using a button based on orientation would be annoying as heck.

      I love buttons.

    I really don't understand it anymore, what's different between each of Samsung's tablets?

    • mattj78

      By my count there are 8 current models of Samsung tablet in various sizes plus all the different versions of those. I'm surprised if Samsung knew the difference - this is classic Samsung flood the market tactics

      Well, as the article said, these ones have amoled screens whereas the previous iterations had lcds. It's significant because the cost to manufacture amoled screens increases drastically with size. They've come a long way if they can make 10" screens that aren't prohibitively expensive.

      Also, I do get your point. They are hard to differentiate.

      There is none, really

  • coledeb

    What is is weird is that all of the leaks about the "s5 Prime" points to a mid June announcement/release...I wonder

  • Fatal1ty_93_RUS

    June really seems to be the best month of 2014 so far

  • ddpacino

    More tablets Samsung...? You have enough products already. Impress us by actually making them worlds better and more efficient.

    Could you please take your "throw everything at the wall" method and develop some better battery technologies..? EVERY other component in our smart devices is evolving... except for what is essentially the most important component (the battery; no juice, no use).

    Super Amoled makes these worthy just wish it was the note range. Have 10.1 2014 and only thing I envy is the screen on my previous Samsung's . give us an s5 type screen and its my perfect tablet.

  • Eszol

    I smell new Note 8

    • jesuguru

      The only (prospective) Samsung tablet that really interests me at the moment.

  • Major Suave

    I was starting to worry. It has been nearly a whole month since Samsung unveiled a new tablet.

  • abobobilly

    AMOLED is good. Orgasamic actually.

  • sterpazook

    are there any 4K-screen tablets on the way?
