Samsung announced yet another line-up of tablets to increase it’s current market share in the tablet space today. Two variants, an 8.4 and 10.5 inch tablets with Super AMOLED displays have been announced.
Samsung says, that at 6.6mm, these tablets are their “thinnest tablets ever” which is true and pretty significant for a device of this size. Another highlight is that high resolution, over saturated, high contrast, candy colored display at a resolution of 2560*1600 (WQXGA).
The Galaxy Tab S have the following specs inside : The processor is either a Samsung Exynos 5 Octa at (1.9 GHz quad-core + 1.3 GHz quad-core) or a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 at 2.3 GHz (dependent on variant). 3GB of RAM, 16 or 32GB of internal storage (with microSD expansion capabilities), an 8MP rear-firing camera and a 2.1 MP front camera.
Samsung has also bought interesting software features like a new Sync that pairs up with your Galaxy phone and allows you to control everything remotely, and alongwith software, they have brought a new Bluetooth keyboard this time which looks interesting too.
This makes the Galaxy Tab S, the first tab that would be rocking a fingerprint scanner, Apple had a chance but it missed this time. Another nifty feature is the Ultra High Power Saving Mode that Samsung implemented on the S5 and we see that it is going to make it’s way on the Galaxy Tab S as well.
With it’s large array of tablets, Samsung has selected the Note 8.0 for now, which was once a top-of-the-line tablet of it’s time to receive an Android KitKat 4.4.2 update. The update was received a bit earlier on the Korean version with the International version getting a notification merely hours later. Some highlights of the change log include performance boost that’s native to the Android KitKat release, the update should also bring improved battery life, full-screen album art on the lock screen, and wireless printing support.
If you own the tablet, look out for the update pop-up!
After Samsung upgraded the Tab line with the Pro line of high performance tablets, it’s around time the Tab series start seeing their share of rumors so as to what the new line may have. Turns out form the leaks, a lot of it is all about sharing looks with the S5.
So now the TabPRO series is the high end line while for other Samsung fans, the Tab series is seen as an affordable series. The first thing we notice about this design is how those side bezels are substantially reduced compared to last year’s Tab 3, also the corners are more squared, a design language we’ve seen with recent Samsung products like the S5.
That pretty much is all we can say about it being different from the Tab 3. The usual home and capacitive buttons are still present.
Samsung cannot let a device release without releasing a variant of it as we know and so is the case with Galaxy Tab 3 Lite. There are no surprises in the specs department as it aimed at the entry level market.
The device packs a dual-core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz of an unspecified brand and comes with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. Like on most Samsung devices, you get a microSD card slot for storage extension with up to 32GB. The display is an LCD which has a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels, resulting in a density of just 169 ppi, which is supposedly an “optimal resolution designed to bring users a better viewing experience”.
The Galaxy Tab 3 Lite will roll out globally soon in Black and White.
What we can conclude is that there are the following models lined up : Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2, Tab Pro 12.2, Tab Pro 10.1 and Tab Pro 8.4. Launching price details aren’t available yet but we shall keep you posted on that. The Pro line comes with high-end specs all-throughout and all these tablets boast fast Exynos 5/Snapdragon 800 processors with WQXGA resolution (2560 x 1600).
After quite a while of rumours and leaks, Samsung’s latest tablets have been announced; the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 and 10.1. The two tablets feature mediocre specifications that won’t stand a chance against most of the competitors. Asus also announced the 6-inch FonePad Note that is set to take on the Samsung Galaxy Note III.
Samsung hasn’t been quite able to keep the lid on most of it’s unannounced products as of late, the latest variant of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 is no exception. The 8-inch model in the Galaxy Tab 3 has shown its face, and its insides.
