New Samsung Galaxy Tab S is the company's thinnest and lightest tablet

Samsung Electronics has announced the Galaxy Tab S, which is described as the company’s thinnest and lightest tablet so far. There’ll be two screen sizes - 10.5-inch and 8.4-inch versions - and a choice of WiFi-only or WiFi + 4G connectivity. The tablets are just 6.6mm deep and weigh from 294g (for the 8.4-inch WiFi-only model).

There’s a 2560 x 1600 pixel Super AMOLED display (the iPad Air offers 2048 x 1536 on its 9.7-inch screen) and an ‘octa-core’ CPU running Android v4.4. Availability is expected from July.

JK Shin, CEO and President of the IT & Mobile Division at Samsung Electronics, said “The tablet is becoming a popular personal viewing device for enjoying content, which makes the quality of the display a critical feature. With the launch of the Galaxy Tab S, Samsung is setting the industry bar higher for the entire mobile industry. It will provide consumers with a visual and entertainment experience that brings colours to life, beautifully packaged in a sleek and ultra-portable mobile device.”

In addition, Samsung has announced a new partnership with Marvel Entertainment. Samsung products are expected to appear in Marvel feature films, while Marvel content will be offered on Samsung devices - starting with the new Tab S, which will come with three free months of subscription services for the Marvel Unlimited digital comic library.
