No sooner had Samsung announced its new tablets at Madison Square Garden in New York City, than AT&T rushed out a release to inform everyone that the carrier will be among the first to offer the LTE enabled version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4
and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5
. The LTE version of the 8.4 inch and 10.5 inch tablets are expected to be released shortly after the release of the Wi-Fi only model. According to Amazon, which is now accepting pre-orders of the Wi-Fi only Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4
, the latter device will be shipped on June 26th. That means we shouldn't expect the LTE enabled variants of the two tablets to hit the market until mid July at the earliest.
AT&T didn't mention any pricing for the tablets, each of which are sporting a Super AMOLED screen with resolution of 2560 x 1600. Each model will also have a fingerprint scanner embedded in its respective home button, and the battery saving Ultra Power Saving Mode is offered for users of both tablets. At 6.5mm thick, the two slates are among the slimmest available.
"We are excited to bring the Samsung Galaxy Tab S to the nation's most reliable 4G LTE network. AT&T offers the largest selection of Samsung devices and the Galaxy Tab S with access to 4G LTE will bring innovative new features and capabilities to Android device users and we are proud that AT&T will be among the first to offer this to consumers."-Jeff Bradley, senior vice president – Devices, AT&T
