Speedier Samsung Galaxy Tab S (with Exynos 5433 processor and LTE-A) to be launched soon?
Samsung released the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 and Tab S 8.4 in June, presenting them as its best tablets ever. However, as we concluded in our reviews (here and here), the Exynos 5 Octa 5420 processor that’s powering the devices doesn’t seem to be handling intensive tasks as you’d expect from a flagship product. That’s likely one of the reasons why Samsung is seemingly getting ready to launch an upgraded Galaxy Tab S.

According to Sam Mobile, a Galaxy Tab S with an Exynos 5 Octa 5433 processor should be released in South Korea later this month, or in early November. As you may know, the Exynos 5433 is Samsung’s latest mobile chipset, and is powering some Galaxy Note 4 variants. The 5433 will bring LTE-A support to the new tablet, which, otherwise, should offer the same features that we can found on the original version (1600 x 2560 pixels Super AMOLED display, 3 GB of RAM, expandable storage space, etc). 

The Tab S that’s expected to get an Exynos 5433 variant will have the model numbers SM-T805S, SM-T805K, and SM-T805L - thus, we’re talking about the 10.5 inch variant here. We don’t know if the 8.4 inch Tab S (SM-T705 / SM-T700) will also get a newer chipset. Also, it’s not clear if the speedier Galaxy Tab S will be released in other markets, but we'll let you know when we find out more about this.

IMO it should come with 4GB of RAM. When 64-bit Android Lollipop is released, with that 64-bit Exynos 5433 + 4GB of RAM, Galaxy tab S will be the first real 64-bit mobile device ever!

Galaxy S6 will. You heard it first here.

What? You are kidding, right? Apple has 5 mobile 64-bit devices on the market, and who knows how many 64-bit mobile Windows devices there are on the market.

10. Dude2014

So 64-bit with 1GB of RAM? Then you call this real 64bit system? K

You should educate yourself. One, addressable RAM is a benefit of 64-bit, not a requirement. Two, how many Windows devices do you see in the wild with 1GB of RAM? Three, iOS is 64-bit, and the iPhone 5S, iPad Air, iPad Mini Retina, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6+ are all 64-bit devices. No amount of wishful thinking on your part will change that. You honestly shouldn't type or say "64-bit," because it is patently obvious you don't have a clue about the term.

Masterful retort. Your rhetorical skills are without peer.

He/she said first real 64bit device...and that is true....to be a first real 64 bit device it should use all the the advantages 64 bit provides... That's why he/she also mentioned android L..

Your semantic exercise is one in futility. 64-bit is on the market, and it has been for over a year. No amount of wanting it to be different is going to change that. You are using an opinion, while I am speaking a fact.

Exactly! what I'm talking about is real 64-bit which has all advantages of 64-bit system. Don't argue with that idiot. Never mind! Just let him enjoy his beloved Apple's ground breaking 64-bit system with pathetic 1GB of RAM.

Once again, the term obviously does not mean what you think it does. Using your reasoning, someone could be "a little pregnant." It's obvious you are either too stupid or too obtuse to realize what a moron you come off as, so I will leave you to wallow in your ignorance.

21. Dude2014

Your example using "pregnant" in this case already shows how stupid you are! Thanks but I ain't going to waste my time here! Bye iSh**p! :)

64bit of apple is a marketing gimmick.... whats the benefit when they are not utulizing its full potential? although apple is fully capable to utilize full potential of 64bit while google is not ready at the moment to utilize full potential

Nice. It's good I didn't get the 5420 Exynos on the Wi-Fi only Tab S just yet. Definitely would ge the 5433 version. Monstrous tablet, and also one of the best (if not the best).

Uh Oh......lol the 5430 Tab S is a DOG..............so, this upgraded version will be their saving grace if ever But they need to offer a Super LCD version as well, not everybody likes Amoled

Better CPU than both, better graphics than the S805 but not as good as the K1 It should get S801 1080p framerates

So Samsung, are you gonna let me trade up my older Tab S?

It appears that Samsung is now trying to lower its inventory of Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 tablets. I was at Costco yesterday and there is a $50 manufacturer’s discount off the already low price of $479.99 (which brings the price down to $429.99 plus tax). This offer is good through Oct 26, 2014. If I hadn't already know about the pending upgraded of Samsung Galaxy Tab S tablets with the new Exynos 5433 processor I would of bought it for sure. Right now it makes sense for me just to wait tell the end of the year or the start of 2015 when the new upgraded tablets may come out (with Android L (Lollipop) operating system).
