    Samsung recently announced their newest high end Android tablets: the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 and 8.4. Both of these devices offer the exact same specs, with the only difference being the size of their displays (and price of course). The major claim to fame of these devices is the high-tech displays which are a QHD Super AMOLED design.

    Here's the full spec-sheet:
    • 2560x1600p Super AMOLED display
    • Samsung Exynos 5420 SoC (WiFi model), or Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SoC (LTE model)
    • 3GB RAM
    • 16/32GB internal storage with micro SD card expansion slot (up to 128GB)
    • 8MP rear and 2.1MP front facing cameras
    • 7,900mAh battery
    • Samsung’s Magazine UX software
    • Fingerprint scanner (supports up to 8 different users)
    • 6.6mm thin, 465g (10.5) or 294g (8.4)
    Other notable features include “Kid mode,” “SideSync 3.0," and a partnership with Marvel. Here's a quote with the details,

    Despite the high-end nature of these tablets, they are not quite as expensive as one might assume. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 WiFi model will be coming in July for $500, while the the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 will be only $400. Pre-orders begin June 13th. On top of this, Samsung announced accessories like the “Book Cover,” and the Logitech Type-S Bluetooth keyboard for $99 (shown in the picture above with the tablet).

    Thanks! I've been waiting for decent new 10 inch tab to come along. I haven't had one since the Toshiba Thrive (which in its day was awesome, but heavy)
    Only concern: I know Qualcomm Snapdragon, but since mine would be a WiFi device, does anyone have experience with the Exynos processor?
