First images of the AMOLED-equipped Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 appear with dimpled backs

Samsung sure loves them some dimples. It’s featured quite prominently on the Samsung Galaxy S5, and it’s going to be featured on another Samsung device that was just leaked this morning. The Samsung Galaxy S Tab 10.5 has broken cover, with SamMobile giving us a look at what is positioned to be a powerhouse in the tablet space.

It looks like your typical Samsung product through and through, and the rumored specs match up with those same expectations. The 10.5-inch Super AMOLED display will feature 2560 x 1440 resolution, and all those pixels will be pushed by Samsung’s Exynos 5420 chipset, which features a set of four Cortex-A15 cores clocked at 1.9GHz, and a set of Cortex-A7 cores at 1.3GHz.

It’ll also have an 8 megapixel rear camera, a 2.1 megapixel front camera, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, WiFi AC, GPS, an IR blaster and LTE connectivity. Expect it to be running Android 4.4 when it comes storming out of the box (predictably with Samsung’s Magazine UI slapped on top).

Unfortunately the details we’re really wondering about — availability — have yet to be known. Samsung does still have a ton of NotePro and TabPro tablets to sell, after all, so the need to rush the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 out of the gate likely doesn’t exist.

    Looks pretty good. I’m content with my Z2 Tablet, though.

    What’s with the huge bezels? Looks like every other Tab. Specs are good, but needs to be more cutting edge in design to make a mark and stand out more IMO.

      I think these bezels are alright comparing to the nexuses ahah

      Bezels tend to serve a purpose on tablets. I’ve found that, on my Nexus 10 and now my Z2 Tablet, that a finger from the hand holding the tablet may find its way onto the screen and disrupt the scrolling with the opposite hand. Sometimes you find yourself zooming a webpage instead of scrolling it. The bigger bezel does help cut down on that “problem.”

    Annnnd… the physical button means I’ve got zero interest in it. Tablets especially should be on-screen nav only.

    10.5″ OLED 2560*1440 display.

    what price we expect for,,, any idea,,,

    Finally some new oled tablets. But the sizes are wrong for most. 8.4″ is hard to hold in one hand for many, 8.0 or 8.2 with thin bezels would be better. 10.5 is rather small, 11.5 would be better for work and it should be presented with an optional keyboard dock at release. I would also have preferred a cpu that wasn’t already one year old.
