Samsung delivers visual wow factor with new Galaxy Tab S

Auckland, New Zealand – 11 July, 2014 – Samsung’s thinnest and lightest tablet, the Galaxy Tab S, is hitting New Zealand shelves today so Kiwis can get their hands on the latest evolution in mobile display technology.


The Samsung Galaxy Tab S raises the bar for tablets, providing users with enhanced screen resolution, picture quality, power and portability – all beautifully packaged in a sleek and ultra-portable mobile device.

The advanced Super AMOLED display technology combines a wider range of colors with a stunning 100,000:1 contrast ratio for richer colors, deeper blacks and a crisper picture. With the Samsung Galaxy Tab S, users can now enjoy premium picture quality in the palm of their hands.

“We’re really excited to introduce the Tab S to New Zealanders. The way we are consuming media is changing quickly and there is now a proliferation of platforms available for us to view, share and engage with content,” said Josh Delgado, Director of IT and Mobile, Samsung Electronics New Zealand. “As a world leader in technology, Samsung is staying ahead of the game by ensuring our devices deliver the most premium experience possible.”

“Kiwis are watching more and more video on demand and they aren’t just sitting on the sofa – they are watching it everywhere. To create the best viewing experience possible, New Zealanders are demanding devices that give them rich, clear colour, while being both powerful and portable. Samsung’s new Galaxy Tab S delivers just this.”

As part of Samsung’s long-standing commitment to supporting locally available content, the Galaxy Tab S supports the TVNZ Ondemand, 3NOW and SKY GO applications, making on-demand content readily accessible on-the-go.

Turn up the Colour with the Industry’s Best Mobile Display – Super AMOLED

The Galaxy Tab S delivers a wider range of rich and crisp colours. Its industry-leading WQXGA (2560x1600, 16:10) Super AMOLED display delivers more than 90% of Adobe RGB colour coverage – expressing more colours than ever before.


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.

Global Brand Partnership with Marvel Entertainment

With the launch of the Galaxy Tab S, Samsung will debut a wealth of Marvel content exclusive to consumers. The partnership will merge the worlds of both brands, highlighting the intersection of Samsung’s technology and Marvel’s visual storytelling. On each device, users will receive three free months of subscription services for Marvel Unlimited, providing Galaxy Tab S users with access to Marvel’s comprehensive digital comic library.

The Galaxy Experience - Productivity Features That Help You Multitask

The Galaxy Tab S delivers an unmatched selection of enhanced productivity and security features that provide users with the ability to effortlessly and safely multitask. Users can make and receive calls directly from their phone to their Galaxy Tab S, anywhere at home, no matter where their phone is with SideSync 3.0. The Galaxy Tab S also allows consumers to surf the web, watch videos, or make calls simultaneously without having to worry about closing out of one to access another.

• Galaxy Tab S 10.5 32 GB - $849
