The official announcement of the new Samsung Galaxy Tab S is still a few days away, but already leaked pictures are causing much excitement among Android die-hards. What’s most noticeable based on the images is that it is indeed thin and sleek (6.6mm) but apparently not such a lightweight, with its 465g weight.

The past few weeks have seen lots of rumours and speculation about the features of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5, including a fingerprint scanner that is similar to that of the Galaxy S5, Ultra Power Saving Mode which is a must nowadays for those who are always mobile and the Download Booster. Based on the new leaked images, it can also have a Remote PC capability which is currently found in some of the newer Samsung tablets. For those who have both a Samsung phone and a Galaxy Tab S, a cool new feature would be the ability to answer calls to your phone from the tablet itself.

The tablet also boasts of an AMOLED display that has 2560x1600 resolution. Inside is just as impressive with the octa-core Exynos 5420 processor, 32 gigs of internal storage which you can still expand through the microSD slot and Mali-T628 graphics. For those who prefer using tablets to take pictures, this one is decent enough with 8-megapixels for the rear camera and 2.1-megapixels for the front-facing one.

After the official product announcement on June 12, it is expected that they will start taking pre-orders immediately. The Galaxy Tab S should be available in the market by the end of this month.

    Not sure why the article says this is a heavy tablet? It weights slightly less than an iPad Air and has a slightly larger screen. This seems to be a very light tablet.

    Heavy? Really? Barely over one pound, and that’s considered heavy? Just how wimpy are people becoming? If one pound is too heavy for someone, maybe they should spend their money on a gym membership instead of a tablet that’s going to strain their delicate body to carry. Perhaps it simply needs an app to allow them to operate their TV via voice commands – we wouldn’t want them to injure themselves trying to pick up their remote, now would we?

    This sounds like an impressive tablet. Great features, and such a minuscule weight.
