Galaxy Tab S leak finally shows OLED screen powered-on
In a little over two weeks, Samsung is holding its Galaxy Premiere event, and unless we’re being intentionally misled, we’re likely to see the debut of Samsung’s next family of tablets, the Galaxy Tab S series featuring bright, high-saturation OLED displays. Now, a lot of information about these tablets has already arrived, and we’ve even checked out pics of the actual hardware thanks to the FCC, but so far one key detail has eluded us: seeing these OLED screens in action. And really, isn’t that the whole point of these models? Well, it’s still a little difficult to appreciate the LCD/OLED difference with everything filtered through another screen like this, but today we get what may be our first look at one of these Tab S models in action, OLED display and all.
Unsurprisingly, what we get here seems quite bright and colorful, but it’s just so hard to really make the benefits of OLED components stand out without an A/B comparison. The tablet itself appears to match our expectations well enough, aligning with the layout we saw in those FCC pics, so we’re inclined to believe this may well be the real deal.
Beyond that new pic, we also see Samsung prepping for the tablet’s launch, and the manufacturer has prepared support pages for the SM-T800 (the 10.5-inch model) on a couple of its international sites. There’s nothing much of note there, aside from the fact that Samsung is hosting these pages at all.
