Samsung has shown off its thinnest and lightest ever tablet, the Galaxy Tab S, which will go on sale in selected countries from next month.

"With the launch of the Galaxy Tab S, Samsung is setting the industry bar higher for the entire mobile industry." said JK Shin, CEO and President of IT & Mobile Division, Samsung Electronics.

The Galaxy Tab S comes with a WQXGA (25601600, 16:10) Super AMOLED display delivers more than 90% of Adobe RGB color coverage - expressing more colors than ever before - and has a 100,000:1 contrast ratio which provides richer images by making blacks darker and whites brighter.

The tablet's Adaptive Display improves the display by intelligently adjusting gamma, saturation, and sharpness based on the application being viewed, the color temperature of the viewing environment and ambient lighting. Pre-set professional modes -- Cinema and Photo -- also let users manually adjust the display settings for both video and photo content.

Since Super AMOLED technology doesn't require a backlight, the Galaxy Tab S consumes less energy than comparative LCD displays while maintaining a very portable design.

Additional features include a 'Multi User Mode' that enables users to create their own personal optimized profile, safe and convenient access with a built-in 'Fingerprint Scanner,' and a specially designed 'Kids' Mode' with its own dedicated interface and kid-friendly applications.
