Samsung AMOLED tablet passes though FCC

The rumoured Samsung AMOLED tablet has been spotted passing though the FCC.

We could see the Samsung AMOLED tablet come to market imminently, as the device has just been approved by the FCC.

The FCC has approved both the LTE version with model number SM-T805 and the 3G SM-T801 model.

From the looks of the dimensions listed by the FCC, you should expect the AMOLED slate to come with a 10.5-inch display, powered by a 6,900mAh battery.

That’s not quite the high powered battery that you’d expect for a high-end 10.5-inch tablet, but Samsung’s Ultra Power Saving Mode feature could extend the battery life.

The specs for the Samsung AMOLED slate appeared on the GFXBench benchmark database earlier this month, so we also know what hardware the tablet will pack.

It is expected to be powered by a 1.9Ghz octa-core Exynos CPU with 3GB of RAM and feature a 10.5-inch display with a 2560 x 1600p WQHD resolution.

16GB of internal storage will be bolstered by microSD card support, plus you’ll get an 8-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front-facing camera.

Expected to run Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box, it isn’t clear what range this AMOLED slate will be part of.

Samsung unveiled the business-centric Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 and Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 among other display sizes at CES 2014.

The AMOLED tablet could well be part of one of these premium tablet ranges, but seeing as there is already a Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1, a 10.5-inch variation could be very confusing for consumers.

Currently, there’s no information as to when Samsung will officially launch this AMOLED slate, but an AMOLED tablet is bound to be pricey.
