Samsung is reportedly working on a new tablet with an 8-inch AMOLED screen that it hopes will compete against the iPad mini 2 and the second generation Nexus 7, SamMobile said on Thursday. Samsung recently announced its Galaxy Note 8.0 (pictured above), but this new tablet would lack the S Pen and note-taking capabilities of that device.
SamMobile said Samsung may try to launch another 10.1-inch device with a similar display and a full HD resolution, but that might be announced at a later date. The 8-inch AMOLED tablet will likely be revealed at the same time as the Galaxy S III, the site said, likely during IFA 2013 in September. That date makes sense, since it’s when the company first announced the Galaxy Note II.
