Samsung has unveiled its latest flagship tablet the Galaxy Tab S, which it claims is its thinnest and lightest yet: an Android 4.4 KitKat device which comes in 10.5-inch and a 8.4-inch versions and aims to go head-to-head with Apple's iPad Air and iPad mini.
Whereas Samsung's Galaxy NotePro and Galaxy TabPro products are positioned as business focused productivity device, the Galaxy Tab S - seen above - is aimed more at content consumers, with the screen a major selling point.

As much as 50 percent of tablet usage is watching video and other content, said Samsung. As such the tablet's 16:10 screen offers 90 percent RGA colour coverage which the company said means it is able to display more colours than before, while the 100,000:1 contrast ratio provides deeper and more realistic images.
Samsung said because a Super AMOLED screen doesn't need to be backlit the devices consume less power than a LCD screen device. The tablet also features a fingerprint reader which may be a handy addition for enterprise users and Side Sync call forwarding which allows the device to make and receive calls from their linked smartphone.
