Well, we heard rumors of Samsung’s upcoming event to announce its new AMOLED tablets just a few hours back, and the company has now officially announced the date and time for said event. It will be held on June 12 in New York at Madison Square Garden, and while Samsung isn’t mentioning what this event is for, we’re likely to see the Galaxy Tab S make its official debut and introduce AMOLED displays back into Samsung’s tablet lineup.

The specs of the Galaxy Tab S will include 2560×1600 displays in 8.4 and 10.5-inch screen variants, an octa-core Exynos 5420 CPU with four 1.9GHz Cortex-A15 cores and four 1.3GHz Cortex-A7 cores, 8-megapixel rear camera, 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, GPS/GLONASS, and LTE connectivity, an IR blaster, and Android 4.4 KitKat with Samsung’s Magazine UX. Like the Galaxy S5, the Galaxy Tab S will feature a fingerprint scanner integrated into the home button, and will come in Wi-Fi and LTE variants, at least at launch.

There’s a chance we might see Samsung’s 13.3-inch tablet as well, though since that will feature an LCD display, it’s not exactly a tablet we’re looking forward to.
