Samsung often touts the Super AMOLED display used in its Galaxy S line of phones as being the best, most battery-conserving display on the market. Unfortunately, they won't be using a Super AMOLED screen on their upcoming Galaxy Tab, opting instead to go with a Super TFT display. When asked why they decided to go with TFT, a Samsung exec said that the Super TFT display offers even better battery life than their Super AMOLED and, obviously, it is quite a bit cheaper. You can hear the news straight from Samsung in the video below.
Sure, it's disappointing that we won't be seeing a Super AMOLED screen on the upcoming Galaxy Tab, but getting the tablet down to a reasonable price is definitely something that Samsung needs to be concerned with. We've heard that the Tab will cost between $200 and $400 after subsidies when it lands here in the U.S., so with the TFT display, let's hope Samsung will be able to shoot for the lower end of that spectrum. How many of you are planning on picking up a Galaxy Tab when it hits?
