Even as Samsung’s latest tablet experiment, the Galaxy Tab 10.5 (or Galaxy Tab S) is all set to launch on June 12, one does not have to wait that long to get a glimpse of the latest model in all of its official-looking glory.
Recently a series of polished press renders of the new, so-called ‘super tablet’ were leaked ahead of the rumoured New York media gathering which is supposed to be held in less than two weeks.
However, the shots do not give away much information. Even though Samsung might have boosted the display from 10.1-inch to 10.5, the overall design language remains extremely consistent.
One can judge by these recent leaks that a lot can be expected from this latest model in the specs department.
Display: Rumours seem to suggest a 2560 x 1600 AMOLED display (the first of its kind in a Samsung tablet since the Galaxy Tab 7.7 in 2012) –
Memory: 3GB of RAM
Camera: 8-megapixel camera
OS: Android 4.4.2 KitKat on board.
Processor: Probably an Exynos 5 octo-core processor with four 1.9GHz Cortex-A15 cores and four 1.3GHz Cortex-A7 cores, doing the grind beneath the surface.
Special Feature: A recent trip through the FCC in the United States has confirmed the oft-rumoured fingerprint scanner.
The ground is all set to make the latest model Samsung’s most solid slate yet.
