Newly Uncovered Samsung SM-T805 Could Be the AMOLED Tablet We Have Been Waiting For

Samsung's R&D teams never seem to be getting any rest. Even if Samsung barely launched its latest set of tablets, the Galaxy NotePRO and Galaxy TabPRO series, the tech giant has apparently already started work on its next high-end tablet line-up.

The guys over at SamMobile came across a UAProf listing of an unseen before device code-named SM-T805, which they speculate is a new premium offering. How can we tell it is high-end just by looking at the number? Well, compare it to the one of the Galaxy TabPRO 12.2 SM-T900 and you’ll certainly notice the resemblance. It also helps the screen resolution has been listed as 2560 x 1600 (the same we have in the Galaxy TabPRO and Galaxy NotePRO line-up). The tablet is shown to be running Android 4.4 KitKat, the latest version in the bunch. There’s a big possibility this is actually the tablet with curved margins we have seen appear in a patent just yesterday. For those who aren't up to date with the developments, we’re talking about a tablet featuring left and right curved sides that could allow users to grip it more comfortably.

There’s also another important piece missing in the Samsung tablet puzzle. We have repeatedly asked ourselves, where are the promised Samsung AMOLED tablets hiding? Back in December, it was revealed that Samsung kick-started the mass production of AMOLED tablet screens in 8-inch and 10-inch flavors, prompting us to hope we’re going to see some AMOLED tablets into the wild in the first quarter of the year. Samsung is expected to continue using LCD screen in its low-range and middle-range tablets, while upgrading to AMOLED in premium devices. Hopefully, the SM-T805 might be the first high-end device to abide to the standard.

We have been playing hide-and-seek with Sammy’s AMOLED tablets for some time now. The tablets were expected to make a debut at CES 2014, then at MWC 2014, but nothing relevant came out. Could it be possible that all rumors and reports concerning Samsung’s AMOLED tablets are fake? It’s highly unlikely the Korean tech giant isn't tackling the idea one way or another. Anyway, sources familiar with the matter have already confirmed the device-related software for the SM-T805 is a work in progress at Samsung, meaning the manufacturer has already finalized things in terms of hardware. On top of the SM-T805, SM-T800 and SM-T801 have been spotted as well, clearly indicating the tablet will come in different variants, meaning with Wi-Fi, 3G and LTE options.
