The first pictures of Samsung’s upcoming (and unannounced) Galaxy Tab S tablet have leaked. SamMobile has a few photos showing the company’s new 10.5 inch tablet with a 2560 x 1600 pixel AMOLED display.
If the design looks familiar, that’s because the new tablet looks a lot like Samsung’s recently launched Galaxy Tab Pro and Galaxy Note Pro 10.1 inch tablets.
But the new model has a slightly larger display, and it’s expected to be one of the first devices to ship with a higher-than-1080p AMOLED screen. OLED displays have a reputation for offering vibrant, saturated colors with blacker blacks than most other types of color displays found on phones and tablets… although they’re not always among the easiest screens to view in direct sunlight.
SamMobile reports the home button below the screen will have an integrated fingerprint sensor that allows users to unlock the tablet securely or interact with other apps such as PayPal for making secure payments.
Instead of the fake leather texture found on Samsung’s recent premium tablets, the back of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S seems to have a perforated plastic finish a lot like the one found on the Galaxy S5 smartphone.
The tablet is expected to have a Samsung Exynos 5420 octa-core processor, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, an IR port, an 8MP rear camera, and 2MP front-facing camera. It’ll ship with Android 4.4 KitKat software.
Samsung is also said to be developing a smaller, 8.4 inch Galaxy Tab S.
