tagged , , ,


Most of the specs of the new Galaxy Tab S have been reported already, but if there is any questions still lingering, this should sum it up. First of all, there will be two versions, the 10.5 and 8.4 and there will be two variants of each with different processors.  We are guessing it has to do with if the model has LTE or not.

They will offer both an Exynos octa-core (4 x 1.9GHz and 4 x 1.3GHz) or a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon (most likely an 801). Both models will feature a 2560 x 1600 display (presumably AMOLED), 3GB of RAM, 16 or 32GB of internal storage, microSD for up to an additional 128GB of storage, 8MP rear camera, 2.1MP front-facing camera, WiFi or WiFi/LTE, and Android 4.4 KitKat. The 10.5-inch version will sport a 7900mAh battery, and the 8.4-incher have 4900mAh.

T-Mobile may be preparing to release a new LTE capable device made by Samsung, the Samsung Galaxy Avant. The device has a model number of SM-G386, and appears to be T-Mobile’s variant of the Galaxy Core LTE.

Right now, only a picture of the device has been leaked, and we don’t yet have specs.

We don’t have a release date for the device yet, but it may be July 28, which is the date shown on the devices screen.

Samsung is ready to unveil their new line of tablet devices tomorrow at an event in New York City’s Madison Square Garden. The Galaxy Tab S tablets will come equipped with 2560 x 1600 Super AMOLED displays which should really raise the bar for a tablet device. To help protect the fancy new screens, buyers may be interested in Samsung’s official flip covers for the new tablets. The new covers utilize some proprietary connectors embedded in the back panels of the new tablets. It appears that at least initially the covers will come in a choice of two colors, a shade of white and another dark gray in color.
