Here comes the Tab S
In LeSS than two weeks after unveiling the Tab S in new york, Samsung has launched its flagship tablet here.
The Tab S is the world’s first android tablet to feature an amoled (active matrix light emitting diode) display which delivers a wider colour range and deeper contrasts, Samsung claims.
It will be available in two sizes — 10.5in and 8.4in — and regardless of which model you pick, both will have an ultra-thin profile of 6.6mm.
The tablet is powered by an eight-core processor and runs on the latest version of android called kitkat. It will have features unique to Samsung devices such as Multi Window for running multiple apps simultaneously.
Tab S also has a fingerprint sensor, another first for a tablet. This feature will allow up to eight users to share the tablet, as each person will be able to have his or her own homescreen and apps.
If you own the company’s other Galaxy smartphone such as the S5, S4 or note 3, you will be able to mirror it on the Tab S.
This will allow you to answer calls from the Galaxy S smartphone on your Tab S, as well as transfer files from one device to another without using cables.
It also has a Remote pC function for connecting the tablet to your pC while on the move and QuickConnect feature for discovering devices within the tablet’s WiFi, Bluetooth and nFC range.
For shooting photos and recording videos, the Tab S has a front-facing 2-megapixel camera and a rear 8-megapixel unit.
The Galaxy Tab S will be hitting store shelves next month, with the 10.5in model going for RM1,999 and the 8.4in for RM1,699.
