Samsung's Galaxy Tab S AMOLED tablets expected to be more expensive than Tab Pro devices


Samsung will host a press event next month, on June 12, and the company already confirmed that it would announce new tablets then. We’re expecting these tablets to be the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 (seen above) and Galaxy Tab S 8.4, both of which should feature AMOLED displays with 2,560 x 1,600 pixels.

According to Finnish retailer Multitronic, the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 and Tab S 8.4 will be more expensive than the Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 and Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 (which were released earlier this year).

Here are the new tablet’s prices, as listed by Multitronic:

  • Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 Wi-Fi plus 4G - €681.90
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 Wi-Fi - €563.90
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 Wi-Fi plus 4G - €563.90
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 Wi-Fi - €449.90 
We’ll remind you that a Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 Wi-Fi currently costs around €350 in Europe, while a Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 Wi-Fi can be bought for around €380. Of course, the Galaxy Tab S prices listed by the Finnish retailer haven’t been officially confirmed, so they may not be accurate. Still, it kind of makes sense for the new tablets to be more expensive than the Tab Pro slates, since it costs more to manufacture large AMOLED displays (instead of the LCD screens featured on the Tab Pro series). We'll bring more details on this as soon as we get them.
