15 June, 2014

This week's highlight is definitely the Samsung's Tab Into Color press event in New York. But while we were waiting for the new slates to go official, we saw a few iPhone 6 leaks, a major Galaxy S5 mini tip, yet another Galaxy F appearance, new Oppo smartphone.



Late Thursday night brought us the Samsung's flagship tablet series - the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and the Galaxy Tab S 10.5. Both slates feature high-resolution Super AMOLED displays, top-notch hardware (Snapdragon 800 or Exynos 5 Octa), 8MP rear cams, fingerprint scanners, Galaxy S5-like shells and super thin waistlines.
