Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (25 June 2014) – Malaysians do not have to wait any further as Samsung Malaysia Electronics Sdn. Bhd. yesterday announced the arrival of its lightest and thinnest tablet to-date – the GALAXY Tab S – on the back of its global showcase in New York City last week. The Super AMOLED tablet combines the most advanced display technology with a full range of premium content for an unrivalled entertainment experience. The GALAXY Tab S is also powered with enhanced productivity features for effortless multitasking, all elegantly housed in a highly stylish, yet practical design.

“The tablet is becoming a popular personal viewing device for enjoying content, which makes the quality of the display a critical feature,” said Lee Dong Yong, President of Samsung Malaysia Electronics. “With the launch of the GALAXY Tab S, Samsung is setting the industry bar higher for the entire mobile industry. It will provide consumers with a visual and entertainment experience that brings colours to life, beautifully packaged in a sleek and ultra-portable mobile device.”

Turn up the Colour with the Industry’s Best Mobile Display – Super AMOLED
The GALAXY Tab S embodies the next evolution in mobile display technology, delivering a wider range of rich and crisp colours. Its industry-leading WQXGA (2560×1600, 16:10) Super AMOLED display delivers more than 90% of Adobe RGB colour coverage – expressing more colours than ever before – and has a remarkable 100,000:1 contrast ratio which provides deeper and more realistic images by making blacks darker and whites brighter.

The GALAXY Tab S also features additional Samsung screen technologies that go beyond the hardware specifications. The tablet’s Adaptive Display ensures the best visual experience anywhere, anytime by intelligently adjusting gamma, saturation, and sharpness based on the application being viewed, the colour temperature of the viewing environment and ambient lighting. Pre-set professional modes – AMOLED Cinema and AMOLED Photo – also let users manually adjust the display settings for bright, dynamic results for both video and photo content.

In addition, GALAXY Tab S users can fully enjoy content clearly and easily outdoors, even in bright sunlight. The tablet’s advanced outdoor visibility technology makes on-screen content look bright, natural, and easy to view.

Since Super AMOLED technology doesn’t require a backlight, the GALAXY Tab S consumes less energy than comparative LCD displays while maintaining a very portable design. Both models have a sleek 6.6mm profile and at only 467g (10.5-inch) and 298g (8.4-inch), that are light and easy to carry. With its longer-lasting battery, and Ultra-Power Saving Mode, the GALAXY Tab S lets consumer enjoy hours of entertainment without having to worry about recharging.
