Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 photos leaked
The first photographs of the AMOLED display Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 have leaked online.
Although the heavily rumoured Galaxy Tab S is expected to arrive with 8.4- and 10.5-inch variants, we’ve only seen what the larger version of the AMOLED tablet will look like.
At first look the Galaxy Tab S 10.1 looks very similar to the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 launched earlier this year, but the display found in this 10.1-inch slate will be an AMOLED panel with more vivid colours and better contrast.
According to rumours, the Tab S range will feature the same fingerprint sensor as the Samsung Galaxy S5, with features like unlocking, PayPal payments, multi-user login compatibility and other digit-related functionality.
What is quite nice is Samsung has apparently abandoned the faux leather back panel found on its latest tablets and phones like the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, in favour of the perforated plastic back of the Galaxy S5.
According to the SamMobile source, those two bizarre dots on the back are proprietary ports for Samsung’s book cover, which could suggest some smart new functionality for the tablet.
The Galaxy Tab S is expected to pack an AMOLED 2560 x 1600p resolution display running on an octa-core Exynos 5420 CPU with four 1.9GHz Cortex-A15 cores and four 1.3GHz Cortex-A7 cores.
In the back, Samsung is supposedly shoving an 8-megapixel camera, coupled with a 2.1-megapixel front-facing alternative.
It is expected to feature Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, GPS and 4G LTE connectivity, as well as an IR blaster.
As the image clearly shows, it looks like Samsung is going with its new Magazine UX for the Galaxy Tab S over the top of Android 4.4 KitKat.
There’s no information yet as to when Samsung will officially unveil the Galaxy Tab S, but the frequency of these leaks would suggest it could be soon.
