Courts has taken down the adverts.

But I guess the prices could not be far from the 'leaked' ones.

Yes, that info is correct - we've triple checked that weeks ago.
These tablets will come with the Exynos processors.

I recall checking if it supports LTE and the answer was yes cause this is a new revision that has LTE support. I hope that bit wasn't incorrect.

I think that the Snapdragon is for the LTE version since the Exynos probably can't handle LTE yet.

Strange.

There is an Exynos 5430 that supports LTE, but this is a very new chip, that can run all 8 cores at once, and has only appeared in the rumoured Korea-only up-specced S5 with 2K resolution screen.

Reports I have seen about the Tab S all say that the Exynos chip is the 5420, which is an older chip that runs only 4 cores at once and does not support LTE. They also say that the LTE version of the Tab S will use Snapdragon 800.

Edit: "Support" is probably the wrong word. The Snapdragon has LTE built into the CPU chip itself. The Exynos 5420 chip does not have LTE built in, but there is nothing to stop Samsung from adding a separate LTE chip to the motherboard.

Yes I'm pretty surprised too.

5420 doesn't support LTE natively.

And why would Samsung do a SD800 Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi + LTE, together with 5420 Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi + LTE. Definitely not cost effective, unlike the tab pro series where Wi-Fi = 5420, LTE = SD800.

If really, Damn u Samsung by introducing 5420 to LTE variant. I love SD800 more and will take that any day.....

Well that is something I also questioning, they should go for SD801 already as the tab pro is already running on SD800, this way they can attract or prevent user from buying the tab pro and go for the tab S. If it was SD800 or SD801 ( I will see away my tab pro lte and get this. )

Samsung been confusing all along with their Exynos, as you already know earlier they mentioned their Exynos does have LTE but it is not for international or suited for outside of korea to utilise it at all, it was made specifically for their local. But now they opened up for use for outside of their country. Then why introduce the SD 800 again in this series? Unless their Exynos is still not capable/stable enough to run throughout the other region.

If it matches my thoughts then I can say their exynos is still not as powerful to run LTE on other region, they manage to hit the nail for our local country signal spectrum. So they are selling the exynos here. while SD 800 still require for other region.

Creative Introduces New High Performance Headset - The Creative Hitz MA500 - HardwareZone.com.sg

Looks like it's Exynos for LTE here, no Snapdragon variant... You guys should know that Exynos has weaker battery life on usage and also higher temperature during loads.

NNot sure if Courts provided the correct info, that price range is $200 more expensive than Tab Pro 10.1 during launch.

woah this tablet looks great. and from the photos it looks significantly slimmer than tab pro 8.4. mega sleek looking. even the launch price is reasonable.
just hope the slim-ness don't cause any overheating like tab pro sometimes

This will still occurs as long as samsung kernel base is not configure properly to handle apps and to intelligently control the app to reduce it speed to a favourable operational level.
