The Samsung Galaxy Tab S line-up is expected to be officially unveiled in all its glory soon, during the Galaxy Premiere event which will take place later this month. Those of you who have kept an eye on the tablet market should already be familiar with the Galaxy Tab S 8.4, and if not, then worry not, because today you have the opportunity to learn more about the device, and also take a look at the very first live photos with the slate.
To be more specific, since yesterday, when the first batch of Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 press renders have hit the blogosphere via @evleaks, we already had a pretty good idea on what we can expect in terms of design. Nevertheless, the pictures you see below are actual pictures with the device, pulled directly from China’s equivalent of the FCC. To make things even more interesting, the gallery brings the official spec sheet in tow as well. More details below.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 LTE Live Photos
What we’re looking at is supposed to be the Chinese version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 LTE, boasting the model number “SM-T705C”. The tablet has just been spotted on Teena’s official website (the Chinese radio certificate authority), and the pictures have been accompanied by the tablet’s official specifications.
Based on this information, the Tab S 8.4 LTE packs a 8.4 inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 2560 x 1600, an 8-core processor clocked at 1.9 GHz (probably an Exynos 5 Octa 5420), 3 GB of RAM, and runs on Android 4.4.2 out of the box. The tablet measures 125.6 × 212.8 × 6.5 mm and weighs 287 grams, and overall, the information matches what we’ve previously seen in AnTuTu to the letter.
The Galaxy Premiere 2014 event (which is dubbed “Tab Into Color“) will be held in New York on June 12, at which point the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 LTE will be unveiled alongside its larger sibling: the Tab S 10.5. Both gadgets are expected to feature roughly the same hardware specifications, and chances are that the duo will go on sale globally sometime by the end of the summer. Until then, stick around and we’ll keep you up to speed with future developments.
