Samsung is all set to step out of its comfort zone with new premium tablets, likely to be known as Galaxy Tab S series. Although earlier this year Samsung introduced the Galaxy Tab Pro lineup, however, it didn't help the company in stopping Apple's growing dominance in the tablet market.
Samsung has now posted the teaser video for an event on June 12, hinting at a possible launch of its new tablet range. The epic event has been titled ‘Samsung Galaxy Premier ‘and is going to take place at the Madison Square Garden in New York City.
