Samsung has indicated in the past that it was ramping up production of larger AMOLED displays to be used in tablet devices. We are starting to see the results of that appearing in places like the GFXBench benchmark site. Earlier this week an 8.4-inch Samsung tablet equipped with an AMOLED screen running 2560 x 1600 resolution was spotted. Now, a second device with an AMOLED display running at the same 2560 x 1600 resolution has been spotted, but with a larger 10.5-inch screen.

Apparently going by model number SM-T800 or SM-T805, depending on whether the device is WiFi only or LTE capable respectively, the new device is powered by a Samsung Exynos 5420 octa-core processor, the same chip used in the WiFi only Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1. Samsung packs in 3GB of RAM in the device, an 8MP rear camera with LED flash and 1080p video recording capable, 16GB of internal storage, and a variety of sensors. The device that surfaced on GFXBench was running Android 4.4.2.

Earlier this year Samsung released several new tablets at once, giving consumers a variety of choices for screen sizes and other features. With this second AMOLED equipped tablet surfacing, it seems likely Samsung is preparing a new wave of tablets to be released later this year with the new screens.
