    Samsung Galaxy Tab S tablets offer the best displays for tablets yet, so says DisplayMate

    The recently launched Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and Galaxy Tab S 10.5 tablets have been tested by DisplayMate as the best displays on a tablet yet. For those who don't know, DisplayMate produces display calibration, evaluation and diagnostic products so they are experts when it comes to displays. For the Samsung Galaxy Tab S tablets, tests included the screen performance, highest colour accuracy, lower screen reflectance and smallest brightness variation with viewing angles with the tablets getting the best in all these tests. While the tablets did score the best in the aforementioned tests, it didn't offer the same in terms of brightness but at 546 nits, this is still an impressive number. The new Samsung Galaxy Tab S tablets are the first to pack in Super AMOLED screens of this size since the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 and should mark wider usage of Super AMOLED screens in other devices as well. For the record, the Apple iPad Air is rated as third best according to DisplayMate, but for a full tech spec comparison do check out our Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 vs Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 vs Apple iPad Air comparison tool.

  • Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and 10.5 hands-on (video included)

    Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and 10.5 hands-on (video included)

    We managed to check out the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and Galaxy Tab S 10.5 hands-on at the launch event yesterday and found that yes, these are indeed the thinnest and lightest tablets from Samsung we've seen and held yet. At just 298g the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 feels like a toy for it's size and while the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 is a bit heavier at 467g it is still super light for how big and awesome looking the screens are on both tablets. Both come in dazzling white and titanium bronze, which more or less means white plastic with gold metallic trim and black plastic with gold metallic trim. The backside follows the same perforated design as the Samsung Galaxy S5. Build quality is very solid despite both feeling super light but we have to say that it felt more rounded than completely flat. The tablets are running Android 4.4.2 and as expected of them, the main feature is their Super AMOLED screens. Check out the pics and video in this article for yourself.

    Samsung recently sent out video teasers for it's upcoming Samsung Galaxy Premiere 2014 event. Set to be held at Madison Square Garden on 12 June 2014, it is expected to be the place where Samsung will reveal it's latest Samsung Galaxy Tab S range, partly because of the line "Tab into Color" that comes up during the teaser video. Tech specs for the range includes a 2K display with 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution for 8.4-inch and 10.5-inch AMOLED screens. Other notable tech specs estimated to come with the tablets include octa-core Samsung Exynos processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB storage, an 8MP rear camera, 2.1MP front camera and Android 4.4.2.

    Rumours: Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and 10.5 official images leaked?

    The upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 tablets have recently been leaked by serial leaker @evleaks. The images look official and show off the new sized tablets nicely. While there aren't any tech specs or features available, the tablets look very thin and sleek while also adopting the same perforated backside, fingerprint scanner and ultra-power saving mode as the Samsung Galaxy S5. There are also 2 round mounts on the backside which we think is for an automatic or interactive flip cover or stand later on.
