Samsung will be doing a number of follow-ups in all of their devices for as long as they exist. From smartphones to tablets, anyone can bet that the South Korean company will have a new one every year.
As previously reported, Samsung is prepping itself to debut another Galaxy Tab. The Tab S, as per seen reports suggest, will be available in two variants: 8.4inches and 10.5inches. We are now seeing some of the early pictures of what the latter sized slab would look like, and yes, it does mimic the Galaxy S5.
The photos also reveal that the 10.5inch Tab S has a somewhat similar blueprint to that of the Galaxy Note Pro 10.1. This also marks Samsung’s return to OLED – a particular comeback since its incorporation on the Galaxy Tab 7.7 of 2011. A common practice, the aforementioned device will have a 10.5inch, 2560×1600 AMOLED panel that would deliver more color and contrast as compared to an LCD clad slab.
Looking at the images, the gadget will still feature the Galaxy Tab that we are fondly familiar: rounded edges with Samsung’s logo up top together with the secondary camera and sensor. The new feature here is the introduction of the S5’s fingerprint sensor also to the Tab S’ home button. This too will include a number of perks, including multi-user login and screen unlock. Turning the tab on its back is the Note 3 and the S5’s faux leather finish and the addition of two dots on either side – a connector of some sort to its supposed book cover.
On the inside, the Tab S 10.5 will carry an Exynos 5420 octa-core processor that’s made up of four 1.9GHz Cortex A15s and four 1.3GHz Cortex A7s, an 8megapixel rear camera (2.1 in front), LTE, IR blaster, Google’s Android 4.4 KitKat and the usual connectivity of WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS/GLONASS.
