Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and 10.5 AMOLED tablets finally made official

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and 10.5 AMOLED tablets finally made officialIt’s been somewhat of a running theme this year; we knew pretty much everything there was to know about these chaps long before the official unveiling. Stupid blogs. Ahem.

For what it’s worth, Samsung has publically revealed the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 (down below somewhere) and Galaxy Tab S 10.5 (above), notable for being the first AMOLED Sammy tablets in a looong time.

Announced last night in New York, Samsung reckons the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and Galaxy Tab S 10.5 are its “best ever”, and too bad if you forked out for a Galaxy Tab/Note Pro earlier this year.

Shared Samsung Galaxy Tab S specs include a resolution of 2560 x 1600, 8-core Exynos processor, 3GB of RAM, 16 or 32GB internal storage (with microSD welcoming up to 128GB), 8MP/2.1MP cameras, optional LTE, and KitKat Android 4.4.

There’s a lot of talk about the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 being “lighter than the iPad Air”, though ultimately we’re talking about a difference of 4g. Count ‘em: four.

At 6.6mm thick, the Samsung Galaxy Tab Ss are almost a full millimetre thinner than the iPad Air, though we’ll let you decide if that’s a plus; being thinner doesn’t necessarily mean better.

Samsung says the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and Galaxy Tab S 10.5 will hit the US in July, priced $399 and $499 respectively. Interestingly, you're getting three months free access to the Marvel Unlimited app, the South Koreans having announced they've jumped in bed with the comic guys. Nice.
