Samsung to show new Tabs at 'Galaxy Premiere' event on June 12

19
Galaxy Premiere 2014

Samsung's sending out invites for an event it's calling "Galaxy Premiere 2014," to be held in New York City on June 12. The invite leaves little to the imagination, with the slogan "tab into color" strongly suggesting we'll see new Galaxy Tabs at the event. The announcement was actually pre-empted in an interview by Samsung boss JK Shin just a few hours ago.

Recent rumors suggest we'll get up to three new Samsung tablets in the new "Galaxy Tab S" range, including AMOLED models, and perhaps even a whopping 13.3-inch slate. Though as was the case at last year's Premiere 2013 in London, there's always the chance we'll see more devices in other categories.

We'll be live from NYC on June 12 to bring you full coverage of Samsung's new tablets, and anything else on show, so stay tuned!
