Super thin Galaxy Tab S announced
Continuing its quest to bring lighter and thinner tablets to the market, Samsung presented Galaxy Tab S yesterday, which comes in two variations, 8.4 and 10.5 inch respectively.
Both tablets come with gorgeous AMOLED screens and a 2560×1440 resolution and they are just 6.6mm thick. The base models have 16GB of internal storage (with support for microSD cards up to 128GB in capacity) and Wi-Fi connectivity, though LTE-equipped and larger capacity models will be available later this year. Inside, the tablets have an eight-core Exynos chipset—a 1.9Ghz quad-core chip plus a 1.3GHz quad-core chip—and 3GB of RAM. A microSD card slot is present, and its optics include an 8-megapixel camera in the back, along with a 2.1MP camera in the front. The larger-sized tablet operates off of a 7900-mAh battery, while the 8.4 inch version has a 4900mAh one.
Samsung touts the AMOLED screen as the Galaxy Tab S’s main advantage over the competition, and first reports say that it is indeed gorgeous. The Wi-Fi-only, 16GB models will start at $399 for the 8.4-inch, and $499 for the 10.5-inch, with the LTE models to follow later in the year.
