Samsung’s new tablets with high-resolution AMOLED displays are coming in July. Prices for the 8.4 inch and 10.5 inch Samsung Galaxy Tab S will start at $399 and $499, respectively. But if you’ve got a little extra money burning a hole in your pocket, Samsung will also offer a line of accessories including cases, keyboards, and more.
Here’s a quick run-down of optional accessories for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S family.
Samsung Bluetooth Keyboard
Don’t relish the idea of tapping out long email messages or documents using an on-screen keyboard? Technically you should be able to use just about any Bluetooth keyboard, but Samsung has new models designed specifically for the 8.4 inch and 10.5 inch tablets.
The keyboards feature Bluetooth 3.0, Android hotkeys, and support for Samsung feautures including multi-window apps and screen capture.
You can also clip the keyboard over the top of the tablet and use it as a screen protector when you’re not using the tablet.
The Bluetooth keyboards feature 200mAh rechargeable batteries and come in bronze or white, just like the tablets themselves. The 10 inch model measures 0.3 inches thick and weighs 12 ounces.
Dimensions for the 8.4 inch keyboard aren’t yet available.
Galaxy Tab S Book Cover
Want to use your own keyboard… or just prop up the tablet for more comfortable use? The Book Cover wraps around the tablet and protects the screen. When you open up the cover and fold it, there’s a click-and-lock feature that lets you use the case a a stand.
It supports 3 angles, which Samsung says are good for viewing, touch, and typing.
The cover comes in white, bronze, red, blue, black, or ivory, and it’s designed so that your tablet will automatically turn off when the cover closes over the screen.
Galaxy Tab S Simple Cover
Samsung also offers a basic cover which can automatically turn off your device, but which doesn’t function as a stand. It’s called the Simple Cover.
The Simple Cover is really just a cover and not a case — it doesn’t protect the back of your device. It will be available in black, white, bronze, red, and blue.
Samsung Level Series headphones
Three new headphone designs are launching as accessories for the Galaxy Tab S lineup, although there’s nothing stopping you from using them with other devices.
The Samsung Level Over and Level Over is a set of over-ear headphones which pair with your phone or tablet over Bluetooth. They feature active noise cancellation and feature a battery good for up to 30 hours of listening time (when active noise cancelling is disabled), or 200 hours of standby time.
Samsung’s Level On headphones are a little more compact, but feature a detachable audio cable instead of Bluetooth support.
The Level in earbuds are light-weight in-ear headphones which come with 4 silicon ear tips and 3 memory foam tips.
All of the headsets feature mics and support for Samsung S Voice so you can control some tablet functions with… your voice.
