Digitimes Research: AMOLED tablets unlikely to benefit Samsung in 2H14
Jim Hsiao, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Thursday 17 July 2014]

Samsung Electronics recently launched the 8.4- and 10.5-inch AMOLED-based Galaxy Tab S flagship tablets. Although the new Galaxy Tab S tablets feature specifications exceeding those of Apple's iPads, the series is still unlikely to boost Samsung's sales in the second half of 2014 as demand in the high-end tablet market is gradually approaching saturation, according to Digitimes Research.

Competition in the 8- and 10-ich segments has increased while the tablet market is maturing and becoming increasingly saturated. The recent Samsung tablets have also already made use of all the specialized features accessible from Android.

Regardless, the Galaxy S 8.4-inch tablet is expected to outcompete the iPad mini in the second half of 2014 due to its advanced Super AMOLED panel technology, lighter weight as a result of no backlight unit as well as larger vieiwng area, added Digitimes Research.
