We’ve been hearing about a new Samsung tablet with an AMOLED screen for a while now, but aside from a few codenames and rumors we haven’t seen anything clear. Today we learn that there may actually be two versions of the device and the name of the series could be Galaxy Tab S.


Ever since 2011 Samsung hasn’t dabbled within the AMOLED tablet segment, so the Galaxy Tab 7.7 was one of a kind. Now it’s trying to get back in that segment, with a new product. They’re said to be making a 10.5 inch AMOLED slate and an 8.4 inch one. The two will be part of the Galaxy Tab S series and we’ll get big resolutions, of 2560 x 1600 pixels, making this a bit of a premiere for AMOLED panels.

Inside the Tab S models we’ll have octa core Samsung Exynos processors and this time there won’t be Qualcomm versions, since Samsung will bundle an Intel modem to handle LTE. Another feature worth mentioning here is a fingerprint scanner, as well as 3 GB of RAM and an 8 megapixel camera at the back. An IR blaster rounds up the specs list and the idea of the biometric sensor is served in the same way as on the Galaxy S5, integrated within the Home button.

What do you make of this product?
