Samsung's newest tablet, the GALAXY Tab S 8.4, was in full display at the Samsung-heavy NTT docomo Winter/Spring 2015 product event.

First off, it looks like a compact laptop PC, but it’s actually a tablet that comes with a detachable Bluetooth keyboard. The GALAXY Tab S 8.4 will be released in mid-February and the price will be around ¥20,000 (~$200). 

To use the GALAXY Tab S 8.4 as a laptop PC, as with the numerous add-on tablet keyboards on the market, you just set the tablet part on the gap of the Bluetooth keyboard (the angle of the screen is not adjustable). When not in use, the tablet and keyboard can be combined together and you can keep them compact in your bag. The keyboard has a battery built-in and needs to be charged through microUSB.

The GALAXY Tab S 8.4 has an 8.4-inch OEL WQXGA display (2560x1600), 2.3GHz quadcore Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8974 CPU, 3GB memory, 32GB of storage, a 4,900mAh built-in battery, 8MP main camera, and 2.1MP front camera. It supports Bluetooth 4.1, GPS and GSM, is mobile wallet capable, waterproof/dustproof, and employes infrared data communication and DLNA/DTCP-IP/DTCP+ (but no NFC). Size: 213×126×6.6mm - Weight: 298g

The celebrity guests at NTT docomo's event, Ken Watanabe, Satomi Ishihara, and Maki Horikita looked too busy taking selifies with Samsung's new curved-edge Samsung GALAXY Note Edge to talk about the new tablet. But, for us it was also one of the most interesting products we saw.
