Galaxy Tab S 10.5 Release Date, Specs, Rumors: Samsung to Launch Tablet at Madison Square Garden Soon?

Korean tech giant Samsung could launch its latest Galaxy tablet this week.

Samsung is holding its Galaxy Premiere 2014 event on Thursday, June 12 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, and will likely unveil the Galaxy Tab S there.

The Galaxy Tab S will bring back the AMOLED display back into Samsung’s tablet line, and is said to be only 6.6mm thin and have a weight of 465g, according to SamMobile.

The tablet should come with a fingerprint scanner integrated into the home button.

New features include Ultra Power Saving Mode, Download Booster, and Remote PC.

Also, the Galaxy Tab S will allow its users to sync with the phone and take incoming calls directly.

The Galaxy Tab S tablet should pack a 10.5 inch screen, a 2560×1600 resolution display, an octa-core Exynos 5420 processor with Mali-T628 graphics, 3GB of RAM, 8-megapixel rear and 2.1-megapixel front-facing cameras, 32GB of internal storage expandable via a microSD slot, and run Google Android 4.4.2 KitKat.

If Samsung launches the Galaxy Tab S on June 12, the tablet should only be available for purchase around early July, since Samsung normally releases its products about 5 to 6 weeks after they are announced.
