Samsung Galaxy Tab S Release Date: Samsung, one of the biggest tech giants in the world, will be unveiling the Samsung Galaxy Tab S in less than a month, On July 4 to be precise. It would be interesting to see how this will fare to the wide array of competitors in the tablet industry, most especially, Apple’s iPad.
The information is backed up by Samsung Mobile head J.K. Shin who said in an interview with the Wall Street Journal that Samsung will launch a new line of tablets in New York on July 4. He also gave out some specifics regarding the new tablet.
“The Galaxy Tab S will have a 10.5” AMOLED display of 2,560 x 1,600 resolution and will tip the scales at around 287 lovely pixels per inch. We’ve also brought our product’s avid fans a smaller and bigger siblings, which might be the other two in the “new line of tablets” – all sporting WQHD resolutions.”
The slate codenamed Chagall corresponds to the 10.5″ Galaxy Tab S, the Klimt is an 8.4″ version with a pixel density of 359 ppi and the Warhol with a 13.3″ 227 ppi screen, which is the only tablet here to sport an LCD. All three will come in Wi-Fi only and cellular form (likely 3G + LTE).
Photos online has also been leaked that there will be a 10.5″ device in a series of photos.
It looks more or less like a current-gen Samsung top-end slate but does feature slimmer edges that slope towards the back panel – much like on Samsung’s line of ultrabooks. The inclusion of an AMOLED panel has allowed for a slimmer waistline as AMOLED screens lack one of the layers that LCDs have.
The specs are expected to be an Exynos 5420 chipset with Android 4.4 under Samsung’s tablet-friendly Magazine UI. Cameras are expected to be an 8 MP and 2 MP unit for the back and front.
Meanwhile JK Shin also said that the Galaxy S5 has mounted 11 million sales since launch. That’s 1 million more than the it was three days ago, suggesting that the flagship is still going strong.
