After a few leaks, a lot of hype and a reasonable amount of fanfare, Samsung officially announced its new Galaxy Tab S product line last week during an event in New York City. Pre-orders are already live for the new high-res slate and today the company has announced a US release date of June 27th. The Galaxy Tab S will be sold directly from Samsung on its website, as well as at retailers like Amazon, Best Buy and Sears.

Available in two display options (10.5-inch and 8.4-inch), the larger tablet retails for $500, while the smaller model carriers an asking price of $400. If you’re having trouble deciding which version of Samsung’s new tablet would best suit your needs, check out our first impressions of the South Korean manufacture’s new 10 and 8-inch slabs.
