Samsung is no stranger to high-end tablet devices. The tech giant launched the 8.4-inch and 10.5-inch Galaxy Tab S tablets in India last year. Now, it's being reported that Samsung is planning to update the Galaxy Tab S, which it plans to introduce later in the year.
According to a report from Sam Mobile, the updated Galaxy Tab S tablets will sport model numbers, SM-T710 and SM-T810. However, it seems that the new devices won't come with a huge spec upgrade.
The latest Galaxy Tab S boasts Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels (2K). But it seems that the forthcoming Galaxy Tab S will probably see an upgrade in the processing department. The displays might even stay same, though we're expecting to see minor cosmetic changes.
