The Samsung Galaxy Tab S Series devices come with a super AMOLED (active-matrix organic light-emitting diodes) display. The series was launched in New York in the last month during the ‘Tab into color’ event. AMOLED screen devices are found in the Samsung Galaxy Tab S Series – devices made by Samsung as well as a few other manufacturers.

Tabs haven’t been manufactured with the AMOLED screens so far, for the reason that such products are not easy to manufacture.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S Series tabs have resolution of 2560 X 1600 pixels. If compared with Apple iPad Air, the Samsung devices have the advantage as this Apple device has 2048 X 1536 pixels.

The Samsung gadgets are made available in partnership with Reliance, where customers can get them with introductory offer. Users will get 9GB of data entirely free for a period of three months apart from giving access to around 1000 films via BigFlix.

Advantage of AMOLED Screens

The advantage that AMOLED screens have is that they produce rich colors to give a better viewing experience. Another upside for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S Series is that they are thin and also consume lesser power. The reason for this is that they can do without backlighting.

What advantage Samsung has in the entire business is they make their own screens. This reduces the expenditure of outsourcing. And the company can manage with lesser profits too when such devices are so advantageous. As stated above, even if making larger AMOLED screens is difficult, Samsung can even learn to manufacture AMOLED TV screens for the entire exercise.

A Short History of AMOLED Screens for Samsung

Not many may remember, but Samsung had introduced an AMOLED tablet back in 2012. However, it is understandable that the price tag could higher, as it was then, and that’s why the tab didn’t do business well enough. But, after two years, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S Series will certainly be in the reckoning.
