NEW YORK — New tablet computers from Samsung will feature screens that are richer in color than standard LCDs.
These screens, known as AMOLED for active-matrix organic light-emitting diodes, are already found in smartphones made by Samsung. But until now, tablets haven’t used them because larger AMOLED screens are more difficult to produce.
Samsung Electronics Co. is trying to change that in its upcoming Android tablets line, the Galaxy Tab S. It announced two models Thursday, with screens of 8.4 inches and 10.5 inches, as measured diagonally. They will start selling in the U.S. in July at $400 for the smaller model and $500 for the larger one.
