We’ve been hearing lots about the Samsung Galaxy Tab S tablets even before they were officially announced, but they now that they have been, we can laud at them for what they really are. Samsung announced a pair of Tab S devices at its Tab into Color event on June 12th, available in 10.5-inch and 8.4-inch variants. If you’re wondering why Samsung is launching yet more tablets, CEO and President of their IT & Mobile Division, JK Shin, elaborates: “The tablet is becoming a popular personal viewing device for enjoying content, which makes the quality of the display a critical feature.” And sure enough, both of the Tab S tablets are equipped with striking 2560×1600 resolution Super AMOLED displays.
These tablets don’t just have a pretty face however; both tablets are available with either a Samsung Exynos 5 Octa or Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor (depending on your region), come with 3GB RAM, and either 16 or 32GB storage versions. The 8.4-inch version comes with a very respectable 4,900mAh battery and the 10.5-inch variant gets a massive 7,900mAh battery. All of this you might think makes the Tab S devices quite thick; quite the contrary, in fact as both the tablets measure just 6.6mm thick, only a hair thicker than the also slim Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet. Both versions are available in either Titanium Bronze or Dazzling White and will become available in certain markets next month.
