May 30, 2014, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

We have already told you about the seemingly awesome slate that Sammy has lined up for us.

The new gen device, to be called the Samsung Galaxy Tab S, looks like it would be a rig that would bring in features the earlier Samsung Galaxy Note/Tab Pro tablets and also the Samsung Galaxy S5 smartphone had brought with them.

After it surfaced some time ago, there were an umpteen number of leaks that followed. And each time the rumor mill went berserk, we got to expect so many things fresh.

The upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab S AMOLED tablet had even appeared in full form on camera quite a few times, and what we were charmed about was its pretty display.

The latest we have here is the surfacing of a new firmware for the Tab S tablet. From what we get to see from the leak, the Galaxy Tab S might come to our midst with a fingerprint sensor and also an Ultra Power Saving mode. Yes, that’s similar to what the Samsung Galaxy S5 had also shown us.

Expected to be outed in two different variants, we will get to play with a 10.5-inch model and an 8.4-inch sibling. From what we hear, the device will come with a screen resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels.

Driving the device will be an octa-core Exynos 5420 SoC with 2/3GB of RAM. Meanwhile, the imaging department will sport an 8 megapixel rear camera which would help click for photos and videos, and also a 2MP front-facing snapper.

The device to be run by Google Android 4.4.2 KitKat operating system, will sport the LTE connectivity option.

It is also being rumored that the device is already heading for a retailer’s racks. That could in turn also mean that the Samsung event scheduled for June 12 would see the ceremonial welcome carpet being rolled out for the device.

Let’s just wait to see what the manufacturer would write down on the price tag when it actually arrives.

Samsung has already released around seven nice slates and this one is indeed going to be even better.  That’s a guess, and we think the Tab S wouldn’t disappoint us at all.
