Samsung Galaxy Tab S

Samsung has been releasing a lot of tablets this year and it seems like they aren’t stopping yet. According to a rumor from SamMobile, the company is preparing to release four new tablets, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 WiFi, Galaxy Tab S 8.4 LTE, Galaxy Tab S 10.5 WiFi, and Galaxy Tab S 10.5 LTE.

The biggest difference between the Galaxy Tab S lines and their other tablets is the WQXGA AMOLED display, which comes with a resolution of 2560×1600. Galaxy Tab S will be the first tablets to feature this display.

Most tablets feature an LCD display and a lot of people have been looking for AMOLED ones, because they offer a better brightness, along with a lot of other advantages. There has been only one Samsung tablet with a Super AMOLED Plus display, the Galaxy Tab 7.7, but the company quit using this technology since then.

According to the rumor, it seems like the Samsung Galaxy Tab S line will also come with a fingerprint sensor, being the first tablets to feature one.

The Galaxy Tab S will come with a quad-core Exynos 5 5420 SoC with the bit.LITTLE technology. It will be powered by a quad-core Cortex A15 and a quad-core 1.3Ghz Cortex A7 processor, a hexa-core ARM Mali-T628 GPU, 3GB of RAM, an 8MP primary camera and a 2.1MP front one.

Like it was to be expected, the tablets will sport WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0 LE / ANT+, GPS, GLONASS and an IR blaster so it can work as a remote control.

It seems like the Galaxy Tab S line will be inspired by the Galaxy Tab 4, featuring a similar design. It will run Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box, along with the Magazine UX, most likely.

There will be four variants of the tablets, two 8.4 inchers and two 10.5 inchers, each coming with either WiFi or 4G LTE:

  • Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4-inch Wi-Fi (SM-T700)
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4-inch LTE (SM-T705)
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5-inch Wi-Fi (SM-T800)
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5-inch LTE (SM-T805)
