SEOUL, South Korea – Samsung is readying a wide range of new tablets designed to fit the needs of virtually every consumer, with the Nexus 11, Tab 8.0, and Tab DUOS.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1
According to rumors, with the Nexus 11, Samsung is aiming to release the world’s first octa-core tablet. The successor to the Samsung-manufactured Google Nexus 10 would feature an Exynos 5410 processor and a TFT LCD display (rather than Samsung’s AMOLED technology). The device though still needs approval from Google.
Other tablets coming up include the Galaxy Tab DUOS, a low-end tablet that should compete with the top selling 7-inch tablets Nexus 7 and the Kindle Fire. The Tab DUOS doesn’t offer much on the specs sheet with a measly 1024×600 pixel display and older dual-core CPU.
Samsung’s offering in the higher-end niche include the Tab 8.0 and the Tab 11. The Tab 8.0 will sport a 1080p AMOLED display and a quad-core Cortex A9 based Exynos 4412 processor. The 11-inch Tab packs a TFT LCD display and a newer dual-core A15 Exynos 5250 chip.
Reports say that Samsung has deferred or might even scrap the next generation of Galaxy Note 10.1 due to weak sales of the current model.
