Samsung Reportedly Planning on Large AMOLED Screen for Their Next Galaxy Tab

Galaxy Tab 2 10.1

Even though Samsung has their Galaxy Note devices that include a tablet with a 10.1″ screen, it seems they don’t want to let their Galaxy Tab line die quite yet. SamMobile has information from their sources that says the next iteration of the Galaxy Tab is coming in the near future and that Samsung will be utilizing AMOLED displays in 7 and 10″ inch devices.

Samsung already makes the Nexus 10 tablet with one of the best displays in the market at the moment, but it looks like they don’t want to stop there. They have reportedly received lots of positive feedback on their AMOLED displays and want to work that into a larger tablet size, which up until this point has been hard to do. The rumor states that we would end up seeing this new high resolution tablet unveiled at IFA this year alongside the Galaxy Note 3.

    What is wrong with Samsung? Why do they insist on using OLED for everything? Don’t any of their engineers ever hold an LCD device next to an OLED device and say something like “wow, at full brightness on both LCD is much brighter” or “wow, at lowest brightness on both LCD is much brighter”? It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see the difference and determine that brightness is much more valuable than contrast ratio on any mobile device. The fact that LCD uses less power in the vast majority of use cases than OLED at any given/matched brightness is just icing on the cake!
    fwiw…I have a Droid Razr Maxx HD which I think has a great SAMOLED display but when I hold it next to my Droid X it pales in comparison – not even close and the Droid X is 2.5 years old!!!!
    Please mobile OEMs, stop using OLED!!!! Look at HTC they used it for a while until they realized LCD was so much brighter and power efficient. Moto probably switched to OLED to make thinner devices. I’ll take a thicker one with LCD but I don’t think they even need to make that compromise anymore with current generation LCD technology.

    My G-Nex has horrible screen burn. I won’t be buying another Samsung AMOLED device.

    • My Gnex burned bad too, although my SGS3 hasn’t had that issue.

    • I’ve looked and looked and looked, seeing comments like this, but my screen is still clear as day.

    • C-Law

      No burn on my gnex or s3

    • Is this endemic to amoleds? My GS3 is perfect too. Is this essentially like burn-in on old plasmas? I guess one thing is the GN has on-screen buttons showing all the time unlike the GS3

  • I would love a refreshed galaxy tab 7.7. I still love mine for the screen. Would be nice with stock jellybean and updated internals but even with it’s current load out it’s probably one of the best android tablets around at over a year old. Definitely one of the highest quality builds around… especially for samsung.

    • hkklife

      Yup, agreed 100%. Just drop the horrible proprietary latching connector and go with conventional microUSB, please Samsung?

  • Come on, Sammy! Refresh the Galaxy Tab 8.9 already.

  • AMOLED tablet display? Gross…

  • skinja

    Can you do a new screen tech comparison?
    In particular, can you look at SAMOLED+. (We haven’t had a SAMOLED plus screen in a while.) And compare how the different AMOLED technologies vary?


    • I think the Note 2 has a plus screen, meaning non-pentile. But I think Samsung just stopped marketing it separate.

  • AMOLED makes for an awesome alarm clock. The blacks dont have the horrible light bleed from the backlight you get from LED screens.

  • Jroc869, Nexus-Life

    I like the deep blacks and thats where it all ends for me. I am a really big fan of LG’s displays and comparing my Nexus 4 and my note 2 the N4 screen wins hands down at least in my book.

    • Matthew Merrick

      Clarity, yes. Colors & brightness, no.

      • Jroc869, Nexus-Life

        Nexus 4 screen is brighter at like 608 nits than both the s3 and note 2. I also dont care for the over saturation of the samsung screens and they are hard to see in the sun.

        • Matthew Merrick

          My note 2 could be better in the sun but is still plenty usable. And as for over saturation, that myth is BS. It used to be true, I’ll give you that, but modern AMOLED displays have just the right amount of saturation. Better colors than LCD’s, completely realistic though, not over saturated at all.

          • SemahjLam

            I have the gs3 and i hate amoled the only good thing are the blacks but that makes looking at pictures without brightness being all the way up a pain…it sucks outside the white is more of a off white and no the colors are not completely realistic the still over- saturate it which looks pretty and all but i rather have super lcd

          • Matthew Merrick

            If you don’t like the saturation levels go in the settings and change them.

  • dandar

    Finally a tablet I’d want to buy. I have a touchpad with cyanogenmod on it, but read kindle on my Razr HD because text looks so much better on my phone (with black background). LCDs are a lost cause with how much backlight shows up in a dark room.

    Large Samsung tablet = XL Verizon logo on back

  • Austin Warren

    We need Nexus 10 Part 2

  • Twofourturbo

    Take my money sammy

  • XphoneTroll

    Always lookong forward to what Samsung has in store for us 🙂

  • EC8CH

    N10 isn’t AMOLED though is it?

    • XphoneTroll

      Cry baby!

    • Thomas

      Wait a minute…is this a white trash joke. 😉

      • EC8CH

        Good Stuff

      • hashtagtroll


    • JetBlue

      The new AMOLED screens seem to be very nice in my opinion especially when I look at my classmates Droid Charge where the screen is practically green/blueish

    • Matthew Merrick

      Except that doesn’t happen anymore. Pick up a note 2 or a GS3, and then pick up a Nexus 4 or a Razr HD. Modern AMOLED give more realistic colors than LCDs

      • EC8CH

        I’m not saying AMOLED is crap, those are just the shortcoming I notice on the G-Nex. Glad they’re improving the tech, cause the black levels are truely impressive.

      • DainLaguna

        Except that the razr hd is an amoled just like the note 2 and gs3. And while the nexus 4 screen isn’t bad, it’s certainly not the best LCD on the market, certainly not for the sake of the comparison you’re making.

        No amoled, not even the note2’s non pentile, can touch panels like the lcd2 on the oneX /evo lte.

        There is a reason those phones are constantly praised for their screens as best in class.

        • Matthew Merrick

          SuperLCD screens are only praised as Best in class due to
          -little to no gap
          -sharper than anything else
          -really bright
          Not because it’s actually better tech or image. Its a good Screen but an equally sharp AMOLED+ would give a much better Picture.
          I will give you brightness tho. AMOLED scenes can’t get quite as eye-scorching-ly bright as a one LCD’S LCD’S I’ve seen. Yet.

          However, I don’t know of a SuperLCD Screen outside of a HTC phone

    • C-Law

      The dirty whites are gone on the s3/note 2. On my gnex, whites looked like newspaper

      • The GS3 is my first amoled, but it looks great to me. My only complaint would be the slight pixelization (due to the res and pentile), and that the brightness only goes down so far. For whatever reason, RootDim doesn’t let you lower the brightness as much as the LCDs I’ve had.

    • TheWenger

      Agreed. The whites never looked good on my G-Nex unless I had the brightness all the way up, and even then they weren’t awesome. Those blacks though…with the totally black front face of the phone….that’s how babies are made.

      • EC8CH

        “Those blacks though…with the totally black front face of the phone….that’s how babies are made.”

        What that guy just said

        • TheWenger

          rofl….I just realized that somebody with the proper agenda could take my comment as racist.
