Here's the new Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 with AMOLED display
It looks like the long-rumored line-up of new Samsung tablets with AMOLED displays is almost ready for an official announcement. Earlier this month, we told you that Samsung was readying 8.4-inch and 10.5-inch AMOLED tablets, both gathered under the new Galaxy Tab S brand.

Today, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 appeared in a couple of photos, courtesy of SamMobile. Viewed from the front, the new tablet doesn’t look too different from the already-available Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1. However, its back is different, as it uses the same dotted pattern that debuted with the Samsung Galaxy S5.

The hardware home button seen on the front side of the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 reportedly includes a fingerprint scanner - and that’s another similarity with the S5 smartphone.

It’s said that the 10.5-inch AMOLED screen of this Tab S has a 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution. Other expected features include Android KitKat with Magazine UX, Samsung’s new octa-core Exynos 5420 processor, 8MP rear camera with LED flash, and a 2.1MP front-facing camera. Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth 4.0 LE should be included, too, while LTE connectivity is probably going to be optional.

While there’s still no word on when Samsung intends to introduce the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 and Galaxy Tab S 8.4, all the latest leaked details suggest that it won’t be long until that happens.

For some reason, the back looks a lot better on this tablet than the s5.

looks odd. the display seems to be another image overlaid on a samsung slate.
but SAMOLED on a tablet is definitely a welcome development.

I really Like the tablet but why does Samsung put buttons on landscape, it annoys the hell out of me when using in portrait. Samsung I believe is best in business when it comes to phones but tablets, it has a lot of kinks to work with The most important being a comfortable feel of holding the device in either portrait or landscape.

I hear u dude. There's no reason not to have software navigation buttons on a tablet instead of hardware ones for Android.

This baby actually looks really slick from the front (and sexy) and the back also looks really good too...seems like my new tab would change from being a NotePro 12.2 to this 10.5" bad boy :)
