New Samsung Galaxy Tab S range in the works

AMOLED displays and fingerprint scanners for all

Samsung is reportedly working on a new range of tablets which it will be called the Samsung Galaxy Tab S.

Samsung apparently has a new range of premium tablets on the way, with AMOLED screens and fingerprint scanners, that it will be calling the Samsung Galaxy Tab S series.

The news comes from SamMobile, an online Samsung community, which states the range will be made up of four tablets in two different sizes; 8.4-inches and 10.5-inches.

Each of the tablets are said to feature a WQXGA 2560×1600-pixel resolution and AMOLED displays, along with the same fingerprint scanner found in the Samsung Galaxy S5.

Other features are said to include an octacore Exynos 5 system on a chip, 3GB of RAM and an eight megapixel rear-facing camera capable of 1080p HD video shooting.

The tablet range is also said to come with a 2.1 megapixel front facing camera, an infrared blaster, microUSB port and support for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS.

All four tablets – perhaps unsurprisingly – will come with Android 4.4.2 KitKat as standard.

It's currently unclear where the range will fit in. From the sound of the specs, it seems to be positioned somewhere between its Galaxy Tab range and the recently introduced Galaxy Pro range.

Design wise, the tablets are said to feature the same perforated pattern as the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Tab 4, but with “much, much slimmer edges” according to SamMobile.

It's also said to be coming in two different colours –shimmer white and titanium grey.
