Week 24 news in review: Galaxy Tab S, iPhone 6, S5 mini leak
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.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is already available on pre-order at $399.99, while the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 is priced at $499.99.
And while we were still talking about Samsung, this week the Korean manufacturer also announced the affordable LTE-enabled Galaxy Core Lite and the Galaxy S III Neo.
Apple fans were busy too. Just a week after the iOS 8 went official, they saw the iPhone 6 teased numerous times. First it was the Taiwanese star Jimmy Lin, who posed with the new iPhone for a selfie. The very next day we saw the iPhone 6 leak yet again, and finally here it is posing right next to a Galaxy S5.
Jolla fans got some nice treatment this week too. First - the massive Saapunki (update 6 + 7) firmware began seeding, while the update 8 was detailed for early July. And from what we are hearing lately, the second Jolla phone might be in the works already.
