Samsung Galaxy Tab S - 10.5
People usually lost count of how many Samsung Galaxy tablets actually existed , the lineup expanded every year with the term Tab being added to fixed display sizes of 7" and above , the tab lineup was
not a worthy competitor to the ipad because of its inferior specifications , but Samsung started to give Apple a run for its money by launching the TabPro lineup , which are fully equipped with the latest specs and a premium prices . However , the tabPro lineup's success may be short lived because Samsung has launched the Tab S lineup to replace the TabPro tablets. The new Amoled displays , and Samsung's own Exynos chipsets and fingerprint sensors make these tablets outshine the competition , and it also makes Samsung's premium offerings worth the extra money.
Samsung Galaxy S 10.5 is Samsung's second Tab S device after the Tab S 8.4 . The tablets design is quite similar to the TabPro , but it features a more streamlined faux metal rim around the edges with the 3.5mm headphone jack pushed to the left side of the device , the top side contains the IR Blaster , a SD card slot , and a Sim Slot if you preorder the LTE version . The tablet's back has been given a new dimpled look which is similar to the one on the Galaxy S5 smartphone , the 8mp camera and the LED flash have been shifted to the middle , and they no longer have that metal insert around them
The internals of the Tab S 10.5 are very interesting , First off we have that gorgeous 2560x1600 resolution SAMOLED display which pushes a mind blowing 288ppi which is the same resolution as its older TabPro 10.5 counterpart , but unlike the TabPro 10.5, which has a Samsung PLS LCD display , the Tab S features a Super Amoled which means that you will get vibrant , sharp and detailed pictures with deep blacks thanks to the OLED technology . The display is protected by Gorilla glass 3 , and it has Samsung's latest version of Magazine UI (which is a Flipboard type interface for TabPro and TabS devices) on top of Android 4.4 Kitkat ,the software now has features like wifi sync to your Galaxy smartphone which allows you to make and answer calls from your tablet. The storage options remain the same , with 16/32GB onboard storage and a expansion slot for 128GB MicroSD card slots .The RAM is the same as before and it stands at 3GB .The processors on the tablet comes in 2 variants ,A Samsung Exynos 5 dual Quad chipset is used for the WiFi versions (QuadCore 1.9Ghz A15 + Quad core 1.2Ghz A7) and a 2.3Ghz Snapdragon 800 chipset for the LTE Versions . The tablet has a 7900mAh battery .Connectivity wise , the TabS features support for Beidou (China's GPS constellation which is not available in Europe and U.S) as well as Gps and Glonass (Russia's GPS constellation) .
