Samsung T800 tablet promises 2560 x 1600, 10.5in AMOLED display and high-end specs

Samsung T800 tablet promises 2560 x 1600, 10.5in AMOLED display and high-end specsIt's time to talk Samsung tablets, and mercifully not the recently announced Galaxy Tab 4 series, which look to extend the GT range's mediocrity into a fourth generation.

No, today we're focusing our attention on a model by the name of the Samsung SM-T800, which is set to be a high-powered affair with a 2560 x 1600-pixel 10.5in Super AMOLED display.

You may recall us musing over the T700 a month or so ago, which is set to come with an 8.4in Super AMOLED display and decent specs elsewhere too.

Well, this appears to be its big brother, and news of its credentials comes our way thanks to SamMobile. The T800 is the Wi-Fi-only variant (as opposed to the T801 3G and T805 LTE models), but otherwise it looks like all three are similarly equipped.

The 10.5in Super AMOLED display certainly promises to be the highlight, with its vibrant images, socially friendly viewing angles and of course the 2560 x 1600 resolution.

Then there's the processor, which is expected to be a quad-core Snapdragon 801 teamed up with 2GB of RAM – though an Exynos 5 chip could be involved in some way as with several of Samsung's high end devices.

Storage is expected to be a choice of 16GB, 32GB or 64GB, and you also get a microSD card slot, 8MP/2MP cameras and a 7900mAh battery. Oh and Android 4.4.2 KitKat, but we're getting to the point where that's surely a given.

What remains to be seen is how the T800 will fit in to Samsung's tablet lineup considering we've already got the rather similar Galaxy TabPro 10.1 (the tablet pictured above, in case you were wondering), which shares many of the features on offer here but lacks the AMOLED display.

Is that enough product differentiation to justify the existence of two separate products? This is Samsung, after all...
