Samsung just unveiled the Galaxy Tab S 8.4, a mid-sized Android slate with a high resolution Super AMOLED display. The device offers high-end specs and specialized software designed to make the most of this big beautiful screen.
The Galaxy Tab S 8.4 comes equipped with a Snapdragon 800 processor or an Exynos 5 Octa chip depending on your region and whether you’re picking up a Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi + LTE model. It also packs an 8.4-inch 2560 x 1600-pixel display, a fingerprint scanner, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera, a 4900mAh battery, 3GB of RAM, and either 16GB or 32GB of storage with microSD support up to 128GB.
Samsung’s tablet runs a modified version of Android 4.4 KitKat, which offers a ton of features including a new Papergarden digital magazine, a special Kids Mode with its own simplified UI and a Multi User Mode with customized profiles. Of course, you’ll also have access to Google’s full suite of apps including Maps, Chrome, Gmail, the Play Store and more.
The Galaxy Tab S 8.4 will be available for pre-order starting tonight at midnight on Samsung’s website. You can pick one up for as little as $399.99, though the new tablet won’t actually ship until July. An LTE model will also be available later this year from Verizon, though Samsung didn’t say how much these carrier variants will cost. We’ll have hands-on with this very soon so keep your browser locked to the homepage.
