Samsung Galaxy Tab S to be launched on June 12
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S lineup is set for unveiling in less than a month - on June 12.
This information has been backed up by Samsung Mobile head J.K. Shin who said it in an interview with the Wall Street Journal that Samsung will launch a new line of tablets in New York on June 12.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S will come with a 10.5 inch AMOLED display of 2,560 x 1,600 pixel resolution and will tip the scales at around 287 lovely pixels per inch.
The slate codenamed Chagall corresponds to the 10.5 inch Galaxy Tab S, the Klimt is an 8.4 inch version with a pixel density of 359 ppi and the Warhol with a 13.3 inches 227 ppi screen, which is the only tablet here to sport an LCD display. All three will come in Wi-Fi only and cellular form (likely 3G + LTE).
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 screen has allowed for a slimmer waistline as AMOLED screens lack one of the layers that the LCDs have.
The innards are expected to be an Exynos 5420 chipset with Android 4.4 Kitkat under Samsung's tablet-friendly Magazine UI. The 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 about 1 million more than the it was three days ago, suggesting that this flagship is still going strong.
