Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5: thinner and lighter than iPad Air

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5: thinner and lighter than iPad AirIt’s incredible to think that these things aren’t confirmed just yet, but Samsung will seemingly do the necessary on Thursday next week.

I speak of the AMOLED-rockin’ Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and Galaxy Tab S 10.5, and while we patiently await the official launch, we’re hearing yet more unofficial detail.

Credit goes to SamMobile, which has gotten its hands on an array of admittedly impressive looking Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 press pics, some of which reveal specs and features.

For starters, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 will weigh 465g with a thickness of 6.6mm. That’s just lighter than the 469g Wi-Fi only iPad Air, and almost a full millimetre thinner.

Incidentally, the smaller Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is tipped to weigh just 287g, which means you’ll be able to balance it comfortably on your pinkie finger.

Getting back to the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5, it’ll seemingly have swipe to unlock (don’t tell Apple), Remote PC (already seen on the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro), and the ability to answer calls from your smartphone on your tablet (which was one of the big features at WWDC on Monday).

Rumoured Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 specs include a 2560 x 1600 resolution, 8-core Exynos processor, 3GB of RAM, 8MP/2.1MP cameras, 32GB internal storage with microSD compatibility, KitKat Android 4.4.something, and Samsung’s Magazine UX.

We're quite liking the copper/gold colouring on the sides, but still not entirely on board with Samsung's perforated rear thing, hmm.

Anyway! More detail on Thursday.

See how that goes...
The Note 10.1 was a pretty bendy, creaky thing. Good, but hardly in iPad territory
when it comes to solidity.
I prefer Samsung's tablets over their phones, though.

There, I said something positive!
