Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S is one solid tablet, both the smaller and bigger model and apparently the product is getting ready to receive an Exynos 5433 version ready for South Korean release. Samsung initially opted for the Exynos 5420 processor, that’s already one year old, so that explains the upgrade.


The South Korean company chose its own country to release the updated version, with the Exynos 5433 chipset on board. We know that because the product appeared on the GeekBench benchmark database, with the model number SM-T805S. The Exynos 5433 is the most powerful Exynos chipset ever launched and the GeekBench 3 scores are incredibly, with the multi score one even beating the Apple A8, by quite a margin.

It’s not yet clear if we’ll also see an international release, but this is bound to frustrate some Galaxy Tab S owners who are complaining about their device’s sluggishness. This product is expected to be a LTE model coming to Korea between the middle of this month and early November, offering support for broadband LTE-A. What do you think of this powerful slate?
