An eagle-eyed reader on HardwareZone spotted the snafu, which led to the price being prematurely revealed. Yes, even before the South Korean multi-national electronics company formally intended to. We're guessing somebody at the mega-retailer is going to get hurt real bad for revealing precious pricing and availability details of Samsung’s thinnest and lightest tablet series to date on its website.
That’s what we’re presuming, since Courts Singapore has now taken down the tablet range from its website.
According to what got published on Courts Singapore’s online store, the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 tablets will cost S$948, while the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 tablets will cost S$698. The website also originally stated that the assortment will be available as of 9 July, but upon checkout, the date altered itself to 16 July.

Such a slip-up!
Thus far, Samsung’s been sure to be tight-lipped about divulging any availability or pricing details (we requested it from Samsung when it unveiled the accessory range for the devices), only stating that it will be “available in selective markets from July” with pricing to be disclosed at a later date closer to launch.
That was until this happened.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5in and 8.4in tablets are the world’s first tablets with Super AMOLED displays. The only difference between the two, besides their sizes, are that the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 comes packed with 32GB of internal memory and LTE capabilities, while the latter will be a 16GB LTE model.
They will both arrive on our shores in Titanium Bronze or Dazzling White options, so there are four choices to choose from.
Maybe now that Courts has unofficially leaked all the info you’ve been waiting to know, Samsung will come out in the next few days to confirm them. If not, a reveal date of 9 or 16 July isn’t that far away, if you’re going by what Courts Singapore gave away.
