It was four years ago- in 2010 March, that the Samsung started its series of the most super hit high end Android smartphone series in the world till date- Samsung Galaxy S series (the current Galaxy S5 is the latest successor to this series). About four years later, yesterday, Samsung officially announced the completely new series of its tablets: Galaxy Tablet S, along with the launch of two brand new tablets: Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and 10.5 (Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5). Since the tablet world is currently dominated by the medium range tablets (there are several Samsung Galaxy Tablets too) The two gladiator high-end tablets are expected to bring the revolution in the tablet series, since there are not much very high-end tablets available in the market right now (Sony Xperia Tablet Z series and previous Galaxy Note tablet series can be an exception though, but still they are not upto the mark).
The two newly announced high-end tablets have almost the same specifications, except the screen size (which obviously makes the dimensions and weight too to be different), and the battery too (since the larger one will obviously need a larger batter). Let’s take a glimpse at the specs of the tablets:
