Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S is a giant GS5, dimpled backing and all

Samsung is nothing if not predictable. As in previous years, the company is set to adapt the design of its latest flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S5, to its flagship tablet, the upcoming Galaxy Tab S.

The rear of the 10.5-inch device looks to be modelled on the dimpled backing of the Galaxy S5; previous Galaxy Tabs, specifically the Note 10.1 2014 Edition and TabPRO/NotePRO series, were adapted from the Note 3’s faux-leather backing.

SamMobile once again has the exclusive here, showing photos of the tablet’s front and back. The 2560×1600 pixel display is likely the biggest change over previous generations, as not only does it sport a higher resolution, but it is the first mass-produced Super AMOLED display for tablets since the short-lived Galaxy Tab 7.7.

Look for Samsung to announce the Galaxy Tab S in two sizes, 8.4-inches and 10.5-inches, in the coming months.

      Well we did almost go a week without a new line of Samsung tablets being announced. Luckily that hasn’t happened.

    I find samsung made up a lot of ground in the smartphone market, but their tablets still leave something to be desired

    Depending on costs and specs I might buy one to replace my Asus prime infinity.

    Didn’t they just come out with new tablets like 2-3 months ago?

      Hell the store I work at has just gotten the Tab 4’s and hasn’t gotten the Pros in yet…

    Is it IP67 certified like the S5?

    The new king of tablets. Now only if they could consolidate the tablets into less than forty tablets

    ALL HAIL MIGHTY SAMSUNG! LOL Personally, I’m holding on to my Galaxy S4 until the Galaxy Note 4 gets introduced- then I’ll upgrade. I did check out the Galaxy S5 at Best Buy- NICE PHONE! I WILL be buying one of the 10.5″ AMOLED Display Samsung Tablets when they become available. If the new tablet has the same finish as the Galaxy S5, there will be no complaints here- I think it’s an attractive package.
