Last year it was rumored that in 2014 Samsung will use AMOLED displays for tablets once again. The last time it did this was back in 2011. At an event in June the company unveiled its Galaxy Tab S lineup, two models that have an 8.4-inch and a 10.5-inch display. Both tablets have Super AMOLED displays which is something that Samsung has been quick to point out in all promotional and marketing materials. A new commercial for these tablets has been aired and it puts the display in the spotlight.
The commercial puts the Galaxy Tab S Super AMOLED display against a conventional LCD panel, the kind you would find in the iPad Air, and shows just how vibrant and vivid its display is. Since the AMOLED panel displays 90 percent color gamut as opposed to 70 percent on LCD panels these displays are capable of delivering much better contrast.
Some customers would no doubt be drawn towards the tablets thanks to their 2,560×1,600 pixel resolution Super AMOLED displays. Apart from that the tablets come with either a Samsung Exynos 5 or Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with 3GB RAM and 16/32GB of onboard storage. Android 4.4.2 comes pre-installed on these tablets.
Those who want to pick one up can do so immediately in the U.S. In Europe Samsung’s new tablets go on sale later this week.
