Samsung to take on Apple with AMOLED tablets

Samsung logoSamsung reportedly preps two new high-end tablets with AMOLED displays to compete directly with Apple's iPad and iPad Mini, says a Korean report.

According to a story at South Korean Web portal Naver, Samsung will release two new tablets next year: one with an 8-inch screen and the other with a 10-inch screen. Both will come with active-matrix organic light-emitting diode) (AMOLED) displays. One of them will be launched alongside the Galaxy S5, the report says.

By offering higher-end tablets with two screen sizes, Samsung wants to compete directly with Apple's iPad and iPad Mini, the source said. The iPad Air and new Mini both still use LCD screens but are equipped with Retina Displays to enhance their resolution.

"We were the first to commercialize AMOLED back in 2007. This year we successfully produced 440 ppi high-resolution AMOLED....we also launched the first curved AMOLED displays," Kinam Kim, CEO of Samsung Display, said last month during a presentation at the company's analyst day in Seoul, South Korea.
