New Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 images show how thin the tablet is, reveal extra features
It appears that Samsung will have little to no surprises for us next week, when it’s going to announce new tablets at its Galaxy Premiere 2014 event. Most likely, the tablets are the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 and Galaxy Tab S 8.4, both of which should offer AMOLED screens with 1,600 x 2,560 pixels. While we already saw press renders showing the two slates, the Tab S 10.5 today appeared in a new set of images that reveal more details about it.

The new images seem to be taken from an official promo video, and allow us to see that the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 is one slender device, having a thinness of only 6.6mm (the Tab S 8.4 is supposed to be even thinner at 6.5mm). The slate has a Remote PC mode, and seemingly allows users to sync it with their smartphone for taking calls directly on the tablet.

As already reported, the back of the new Tab S series features the same dotted pattern seen on Samsung’s Galaxy S5 flagship smartphone. One of the images embedded below shows a close-up of the Tab S 10.5’s back (including its rear camera with LED flash).

Android 4.4 KitKat, fingerprint sensor, 3GB of RAM and an octa-core Exynos 5420 processor should be among the common features of the Tab S 10.5 and Tab S 8.4.

According to a timetable spotted yesterday, the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 and Tab S 8.4 should be available to pre-order one day after their official announcement, on June 13. Both new devices should be properly launched on June 27.

I don't get why everyone complained when the Asus PadFone launched and people needed to take the phone out for calls or otherwise take the call IN TABLET MODE... and now with Apple announcement of answering calls on your MAC, and Samsung allowing taking calls on your Tablet... What were people bitchin' about the PadFone then??? I really don't see the advantage of taking your calls anywhere else than your phone (or headset)... so I really see no appealing in that particular Apple announcement or that particular slide of this article...

In my opinion that gray looks very ugly, but otherwise it seems like a cool device.

Don't see any purpose of these tablets. They already have Tab Pros and Note Pros. Brace yourselves guys, more tablet spam coming soon.

I agree. I really like the Pro line but I guess just like with there phones the need to cover every group.

I really hatting the back band aid thingie. I know I will put a case on every tablet I own. But that still troubles me with that bandaid look. Tab Pro/Note 2014 got it right with the faux leather. I will hold on to my Nex 10 more and wait for possible new Nexus series or LG's upcoming tablets. So far the only thing I saw that would up the ante of the Note 2014 is the AMOLED, given resolution is still the same...

It's interesting that the OG nexus 7 had dimpled back and people fell in love with the looks and feel. However I do find the dimpled back better in tablets.

How come no one called Nexus 7 (2012) band aid? Side by side, the backs look the same.

I think it's because of all the colors the GS5 comes in. If it just came in black and white, I doubt there would be as many comparisons.
