Pictures of the long-rumored premium Samsung tablet Galaxy Tab S (10.5-inch model) have surfaced online, just days ahead of the company's launch event on 12 June.
Popular twitter spy @evleaks has posted the alleged press shots of the 10.5-inch Galaxy Tab S model, revealing the design language of the device. We already know that the upcoming Samsung tablets are top-end models, and the leaked images almost confirms the news.
In the photos, we can see a device sporting premium Galaxy NotePro series tablet design, having a home screen with three onscreen buttons (home, back and recent apps). On the rear side, we see the device flaunting dimpled perforated surface, with square-shaped camera module, paired with LED flash on the top centre, seemingly inspired from Galaxy S5's back cover.
However, it is not possible to ascertain whether the tablets will have water-and-dust resistant certifications, like the Samsung's new flagship smartphone.
The device's side can be seen flaunting shiny metallic rim (probably chromium casting), dotted by ports like USB, Audio Jack, MicroSD card slot and speaker grills along the edge.
According to multiple reports, Galaxy Tab S series will come in two models - 10.5-inch and 8.4-inch. Rumors are also rife that Samsung might announce a much bigger 13.3-inch model as well.
All the Tab S series devices are said be more premium than the company's current high-end model series NotePro and TabPro (both are LCD screen based devices), which were unveiled at CES (Consumer Electronics Show) 2014, Las Vegas in January.
The upcoming Galaxy Tab S series devices are expected to boast a super AMOLED display with a staggering 2560x1600p resolution and run on Android's latest KitKat OS, powered by the company's in-house built Exynos 5420 series Octa-core processor. It will aptly be supported by Mali-T628 graphics engine, 3GB RAM and 32GB inbuilt memory, reported SamMobile.
The Samsung tablet is also expected to boast a fingerprint sensor (probably on the home button), ultra power-saving battery mode, download booster seen inside the Galaxy S5 and house two cameras - an 8.0-megapixel primary camera on the rear side and a 2.0-megapixel camera on the front.
Samsung has already sent out press invites to the media for the company's upcoming event 'Galaxy Premiere 2014' to be held in New York City. The invitation's headline says 'tab into color', giving away a hint that the event will witness the launch of Galaxy Tab S series devices.
