Galaxy_Tab_S_fingerprint-03

A previous report claimed to reveal details and specs for Samsung’s upcoming “Galaxy Tab S” tablet, but today we get confirmation from leaked firmware for the device that it will indeed include a fingerprint sensor. SamMobile dug through the official firmware that leaked online earlier today and in it discovered proof of the fingerprint scanner through a number of screenshots showing how the feature works on the larger tablet.

It’s not surprisingly a similar process and UI to the Galaxy S5, but the firmware also revealed the Ultra Power Saving Mode that first made an appearance on the S5, as well as an improved camera UI and more. Head below for more screenshots. 

The previous rumor suggested the new Galaxy Tab S would arrive in 8.4 and 10.5-inch models, both with 2,560 × 1,600 AMOLED displays, an Exynos 5 Octa processor, 3GB of RAM, an IR blaster, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and Android 4.4.2.
