Samsung Galaxy Tab S specs leaked in press photos

galaxy tab sThe yet-to-be-revealed Samsung Galaxy Tab S tablet has leaked in what appears to be official press photos and shows more than just how it looks.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S is all set to be unveiled this week but that hasn’t prevented some apparently legit press photos so find their way out.

The exciting thing is that not only do they show off the slender form of the Tab S but they also give away plenty of the tablet’s functions including a fingerprint scanner home button and the ability to take phone calls.

The Samsung event on June 12th in New York should unveil the tablet officially but as of now the photos and leaks are pointing to a 465g, 6.6mm thin slate with the perforated textured back of the Galaxy S5.

The leaks also reveal the same fingerprint scanner featured in the Samsung Galaxy S5. This is a home button which can be stroked to recognise the user and unlock the device only to them. Samsung also has a deal with PayPal that uses the fingerprint scanner to confirm payments, this will likely feature on the tablet also.

Other features include Ultra Power Saving Mode for days of battery when running as low as 10%, Download Booster that uses Wi-Fi and data networks simultaneously to increase speeds, and Remote PC for using a computer on the tablet – which could be great for gaming.

The Tab S should come packing a 10.5-inch 2560 x 1600 (287ppi) resolution AMOLED display, with an octa-core Exynos 5420 processor and Mali-T628 graphics under the hood all buddied with a healthy 3GB of RAM.

Word is that the main camera is 8-megapixels with another 2.1-megapixel selfie/vid cam on the front.

Storage will most likely be 32GB onboard with expansion up to 128GB via microSD. It will come loaded with Anroid KitKat 4.4.2 and should be available to buy from the end of this month.
