Samsung Galaxy S Tab specs revealed in FFC filing

Android KitKat device to feature 10.5in screen and 8-megapixel camera

Samsung has revealed the details on its new Galaxy Tab by accident after submitting documents to a US agency.

A Federal Communications Commission (FCC) application made by the company includes photos and details about the upcoming tablet, including extensive notes on resolution, size and features. The model number in the filing matches that of the tablet in previously leaked images.

According to the filing, the Galaxy Tab S will have a 10.5in AMOLED display as well as a 2,560 x 1,600 pixel resolution. It measures 246.5mm wide and 176.4mm tall, and though no thickness was specified by the document, from the images included the new tablet looks to be slim.

The rear of the Galaxy Tab S will feature an eight megapixel camera, while the front will include a two megapizel front-facing varient. Included with the application are details on a rumoured fingerprint scanner.

The tablet will run Google Android KitKat and have Samsung's magazine UI overlay, similar to that of the other tablets designed by the South Korean company. An alleged specification not confirmed by the FCC is the processor, with an octa-core Exynos 5420 chipset being touted as the most likely to feature.

Though the version in the FCC documents is Wi-Fi only, it is more than likely that there will be 3G and 4G models of the Galaxy Tab S in the future.

A release date from the company has yet to be confirmed, but rumours have placed IFA 2014 in September as a likely place for the new range to be unveiled.
