New photos of the 10.5in tablet come as part of a Federal Communications Commission [FCC] application, which includes various details about the tablet as well as a number of photos that show its dimensions.

The tablet computer has the same SM-T800 model number that was mentioned in earlier leaked photos and a 10.5in AMOLED display complete with a 2,560 x 1,600 pixel resolution.

In addition it will have an 8-megapixel lens on the back, a 2-megapixel camera on the front and its rumoured fingerprint scanner is also included within Samsung’s FCC application.

The version included in the FCC documents is the Wi-Fi only variation and it remains fairly likely that there will be both 3G and 4G enabled versions of the large tablet released in the future. It runs on Google Android KitKat and this will have Samsung’s Magazine UI overlay that the company’s customers will be familiar with.

Samsung has been flooding the tablet market with new models so far this year and it was only last month that three new slates were confirmed as part of the Galaxy Tab 4 series.

Those tablets, which debuted on 1 May, come in 10.1in, 8in and 7in screen sizes, and have a WXGA display with a 16 x 10 ratio that makes them perfect for viewing movies, playing games or reading digital content.
