Galaxy Tab S finger scanner

Samsung's upcoming tablet series, the Galaxy Tab S, will allegedly feature a fingerprint scanner that is similar in functionality to the one used in the Galaxy S5. In addition to the fingerprint scanner, the tablets will come with a battery saver mode that debuted on the Samsung's latest flagship, called Ultra Power Saving Mode.

The firmware for the 10.5-inch Wi-Fi only version of the Galaxy Tab S (SM-T800) was leaked earlier today, which contained information regarding the fingerprint sensor and the battery saver mode. The tablets have not been officially confirmed by Samsung yet, but the South Korean manufacturer has sent out invites for a media event centred around tablets on June 12, which is when the Galaxy Tab S series will likely be unveiled.

The Galaxy Tab S series will be the first tablet series from Samsung to feature AMOLED displays, if the rumors are to be believed. The leaks point to three variants: 8.4-inch, 10.5-inch and a gargantuan 13.3-inch offering. While there isn't any official information at this stage, the tablets are rumoured to be high-end offerings and are said to feature Samsung's upcoming Exynos 5420 octa-core SoC and a textured back that is similar to that of the Galaxy S5.
