America’s largest carrier Verizon has just unveiled the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5. The tablet was announced by AT&T just yesterday, so the timing couldn’t have been better from Big Red. But unlike AT&T, Verizon is only selling the 10.5 inch model, with no word on the 8.4 inch variant as of yet.
As far as the pricing is concerned, customers should be looking to shell out $599.99 without a contract or $499.99 with a two year agreement from the carrier. Verizon specifies that the tablet will come with support for its XLTE networks, which is only seen on a handful of devices.
The Galaxy Tab S 10.5 packs a 2560 x 1600 resolution display, a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 SoC, 3GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel camera on the back, a 2.1-megapixel front facing camera, a 7,900 mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat.
So far, only the octa core version of the Galaxy Tab S was sold by Samsung. So the customers will be relieved that carriers have finally started launching 4G LTE variants as well.
