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.
