At an event in New York earlier today, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Tab S series of tablets. These tablets come merely after months of launch of the Galaxy Tab PRO devices and pip the Tab PRO series tablets in every aspect.
The new Galaxy Tab S range comprises of the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 and the Galaxy Tab S 8. 4 – that sports a display of 10.5-inch and 8.4-inch respectively but the biggest game changer we feel is the Super AMOLED panel. Samsung has sold a Super AMOLED equipped tablet way back in 2011 but that received a mediocre response. This time it could be different because the panel also supports high resolution 2560×1600 pixels, features 90% of Adobe RGB color coverage, 100,000:1 contrast ratio, Adaptive Display and pre-set professional display modes like AMOLED Cinema and AMOLED Photo.
The tablets are super thin at just 6.6mm thin but packs in some potent hardware like Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor or Exynos 5 Octa processor, 3GB RAM, 8 megapixel and 2.1 megapixel rear and front-facing cameras, 16 or 32GB internal memory, microSD card slot, almost a day of battery life and other features like fingerprint scanner, Ultra Power Saving Mode, Multi User Mode, Kids Mode, Papergarden interactive magazine app, free book from Kindle every month and bunch of freebies as part of Galaxy Gifts.
The tablet will go on sale from next month in select countries and US will get the Wi-Fi variant of both Galaxy Tab S 10.5 and Galaxy Tab S 8.4 for $499 and $399 respectively.
