Irony: Low-res photo shows off hi-res display on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S slates are also both equipped with an 8MP rear-facing snapper with a 2.1MP camera in front. A fingerprint scanner is embedded in the home button, exactly where it is on the Samsung Galaxy S5. Android 4.4.2 is pre-installed.
What we have below is an ironic picture of the screen on the 10.5 inch Samsung Galaxy Tab S. What makes it ironic? It is a low resolution photograph of a high resolution screen.

These leaders, what device to do the use to take pictures. It's like they use phones from a decade a go that had vga cameras.

Lol meant to say leakers.. Just saying considering most phones have decent cameras today, you would think these leakers would take pictures that don't like they are using a camera phone from 10 years ago

Because most "leaks" are not from genuine "leakers" who would have a much better camera -- or just use the camera on the device they are "leaking".
In reality, most "leaks" are just backchannel marketing from the companies that make the devices.

It's like raaa-i-aaain, on your wedding day! It's like a freeee riiiide, when you're already late!
Hint: There's nothing ironic about a low-resolution image where a high-resolution screen is included in the shot.

Can someone explain to me how on earth a low resolution picture can show the details that tell us if the screen has high resolution or not?

I don't like it. 16:9 is not a good ratio, they should have made it with 4:3 and a display around 9 inches.

I on the other hand LOVE 16:9. I hate watching videos with black bars. I also tend to hold tablets more often in landscape rather than portrait.

You realize that it is not 16:9 but 8:5 instead, right? 2560x1440 is 16:9 but 2560x1600 is 8:5

i'm sorry but(to me) they ruined it with physical buttons

Physical buttons are great for Android tablets. On screen buttons would use a huge amount of screen real estate.

Like my Z2 which has 3quarter of bezels on the top and on the bottom

Fantastic! When are they going to go for metal on their tablets? This may raise the weight little but it would nice if they combined the metal with AMOLED for tablets, like they did with the Tab 7.7

They should also release a 12 inch version, that would be perfect for a fantastic viewing experience

I hope the fingerprint scanner isn't a horrible one like on the S5 where you have to slide your finger over it...
