The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 is powered by a Exynos 5 Octa 5420 chip, packing a powerful Octa-Core CPU (as a matter of fact it's really a Quad-Core clocking at 1900 megahertz and an additional Quad-Core running at 1.3 gigahertz) with a large 3 GB RAM memory. This device has a 32 GB huge internal memory and an external memory card slot, allowing the user to install hundreds of apps without thinking about running out of space at all.

This tablet has two cameras, an 8 megapixels back-facing camera and a 2.1 mega-pixels front side camera. The Tab S 10.5 also captures videos in 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 30 fps. The camera also counts with a lot of cool features like flash, auto-focus, fast burst mode, HDR mode, digital image stabilization and geo tagging.
