At 6.5 mm thickness, the unreleased Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is one super-slim tablet
Just yesterday, leaker-extraordinaire @evleaks made public a trio of renders of a previously-unseen Samsung tablet: the Galaxy Tab S 8.4. The 8.4-incher had "2014" written all over it, with its incorporation of the Galaxy S5's now signature, new "glam look" back.

The dotted, plastic rear wasn't the only thing that reminded us of the S5, however -- its rumored specs heet was similarly impressive. Luckily for all involved, we now have a rather official confirmation of those specs, courtesy of Tenaa -- China's official communications certification body -- and the regulator even builds on top of what we already know. Namely, that 8.4-inch, 1600 x 2560 pixel resolution AMOLED display has been re-confirmed, along with an octa-core Exynos processor running at 1.9GHz (likely the Exynos 5420) and 3GB of RAM. New here are the physical dimensions of the Tab S 8.4, which happen to be quite intriguing in at least one regard: thickness. 

More specifically, at 125.6 x 212.8 x 6.5 mm (4.94 x 8.37 x 0.25 in), this new Samsung tablet is on path to becoming one of the world's thinnest tablets available, only trailing behind the likes of the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet and its 6.4 mm-thick profile. Indeed, if thinness ranks high on your list of priorities, the Tab S 8.4 is shaping up to be a very real contender.

That's about everything we know about Samsung's (yet another) new tablet at this point. Thankfully, the company's Galaxy Premiere 2014 event, scheduled for June 12, isn't that far off, so we should have the full picture in due time.

It's probably going to have a terrible screen due to the amoled display.
Looks just like the Tab Pro 8.4, however the back panel is probably going to feel like harsh plastic compared to the S5, just like the Tab Pro 8.4 was compared to the Note 3 with the faux leather backing.

Samsung will price it between $ 650-800 depending on different countries..... and after 1 month the price will be reduced by $ 50 - 100 because it will not sell well......the same happened to galaxy s5.....
