Samsung fan site SamMobile reports that the Korean conglomerate is planning to release a new tablet by the name of the ‘Galaxy Tab 3 Plus’ by the end of the year.
According to company “insiders”, the model will sport a Full HD Super AMOLED display, an Exynos 5 processor, and will be marketed as a premium device to compete with the iPad and Sony’s Xperia Tablet Z.
What is less clear, however, is what size the tablet’s display will be, with SamMobile’s source apparently expecting it to be 10.1-inches or 11.6-inches.
Samsung is said to be testing a number of different size displays in tablet prototypes.
Samsung isn’t exactly a newcomer when it comes to OLED display technology. The display manufacturer has been developing OLED displays for TVs for years now, and announced new 55-inch and 85-inch TVs at the CES convention in January.
A Super AMOLED Plus display was fitted to the Galaxy Tab 7.7 when the tablet launched in 2011, and similar display can now be found on Samsung's latest high-end smartphone — the Galaxy S4.
The new Galaxy Tab 3 Plus could debut at the IFA exhibition in Berlin, Germany in August, an event which is also expected to play host to the launch of the company's third-generation Galaxy Note phablet.
