Samsung’s AMOLED display tablets have been in the rumorland for quite some time now and Samsung has officially unveiled them in front of the world. Called Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 and 8.4, the Android powered tablets feature Super AMOLED screens with WQHD resolution (2560 x 1600 pixels). These are Samsung’s first tablets with S AMOLED display, which offers better contrast and colors along with a slimmer profile compared to LCD counterparts. This results in a waistline of just 6.4mm for the two tablets.
The LTE version of the tablets will be powered by a Snapdragon 800 processor with four 2.3GHz cores, while the non LTE WiFi only version comes with an Exynos 5 Octa chipset with a quad 1.3GHz Cortex-A7 and quad 1.9GHz Cortex-A15 instead. Both configurations offer 3GB RAM, 16/32GB internal storage, 8MP rear camera and 2.1MP front snappers. The 10.5 variant sports a 7,900mAh battery, while the 8.4 comes with a 4,900mAh battery.
The tablets also feature fingerprint scanner in the home button, just like the Galaxy S5. Both of them run on Android 4.4 with Samsung’s Magazine UX over it. Samsung is asking $399 for the Galaxy Tab 8.4 and $499 for the Galaxy Tab S 10.5. Shipments are expected to begin in July.
