New Samsung Galaxy Tab S lineup said to include fingerprint sensor and AMOLED display
Samsung has a new tablet lineup in the works that'll come in two displays sizes and feature an AMOLED display and fingerprint sensor. The upcoming range will go by the name Galaxy Tab S, it's claimed.
As reported by website SamMobile, the Galaxy Tab S lineup will feature four tablets in either 8.4-inch or 10.5-inch sizes. Each of them will boast a WQXGA 2560×1600-pixel resolution AMOLED display and an embedded fingerprint sensor in the home button, making it the first Samsung tablet range to offer fingerprint sensor-functionality. The fingerprint sensor will allegedly work just like it does on the Galaxy S5.
Other Galaxy Tab S features include an Octa-core Exynos 5 SoC, 3GB of RAM, 8 MP rear-facing camera sensor with 1080p Full HD video recording, 2.1 MP front- facing camera, IR blaster, MicroUSB 2.0 port, and support for Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, DLNA, Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, GPS, and GLONASS. Oh, and all four tablets will come with Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box.

As for their design, you can supposedly expect something similar to the Galaxy Tab 4 but with "much, much slimmer edges", according to SamMobile. That means they will have a perforated pattern on the back panel. Samsung's also working on new flip covers.
And finally, the Galaxy Tab S tablets will sport Wi-Fi or LTE connectivity and will reportedly launch in two colour options: Shimmer White and Titanium Grey.
