Samsung is easily one of the top household names in the Indian smartphone market. And that has been possible with the company regularly pushing out brand new handsets for all the Samsung and Android fanboys out there. But what's the deal with the company's tablet aspirations?
And before we start questioning those aspirations and ambitions, Samsung, as you may already know, has outed not one but two new tablets that are primarily looking to take the competition to the tablet offerings from Apple: The new Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 and Galaxy S Tab S 8.4.
Keeping our focus set on the 8.4 version of it, the tablet features a Super AMOLED screens of WQHD resolution (2560 x 1600 pixels). This one sports an 8.4-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. The makers have added a 4900mAh battery fitted inside.
The slate will offer 3GB of RAM and 16GB/32GB of on-board memory, which can be expanded up to 128GB via a microSD card slot. Other specs include: 8MP rear-facing camera with LED Flash, 2MP front-facing shooter, Wi-Fi, 4G LTE/3G, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi Direct, GPS, GLONASS.
But keeping aside all the stats, specs and numbers aside for the tablet at the moment, what are the primary features in the device that could make it a success in the market?
We take a look at the top 5 features inside the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 that could make it stand ahead of others in the market.
With the new Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4, users can see their movies and games come to life with vivid colors, dark shadows and stunning contrast on the device's 8.4-inch display.
Also, the tablet offers two times the pixels of an HDTV, with the screen also keeping everything clear by auto-adjusting brightness levels based on where the user is and what he or she is watching.
Users can unlock their tablet and keep your photos, videos, and personal files secure with just the swipe of your finger. It's actually one of the first attempt by the company at fingerprint security on a tablet with the on screen fingerprint scanner. Users will also be happy to know that Samsung's security apps and features like KNOX for enterprise are also on tap.
There will be a time when your tablet will seemingly carry less battery juice after a day's strong usage. Fear not though, as there's the Ultra Power Saving Mode that keeps you connected even when your battery is critically low.
The feature works out by turning your screen to black and white, while also shutting down non-essential apps. This means your device will still work when you need it the most.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 comes with the Multi User Mode. This enables everyone in the family to create a private and personalized tablet experience that can be later secured with the fingerprint scanner.
And in case you are wanting to keep the little ones entertained, Kids Mode will allow you to customize playtime and apps with parental controls.
With the multi-window option now in place, users can do two things at once like watching a music video, finding details on the song, or even read an email and edit a presentation at the same time. Opening two windows or apps at the same time offers you the ability multitask and get things done faster than ever before.
