Samsung Galaxy Tab S ‘Flip Cover’ spotted in the wild


Samsung is expected to officially reveal its new Galaxy Tab S to the public during its Galaxy Premiere event on June 12th in New York, however this unannounced slate has already been outed on multiple occasions. Although we’re pretty familiar with its rumored specs: a 10.5-inch 2,560 × 1,600 AMOLED display, an Exynos 5 Octa processor, 3GB of RAM, an IR blaster, an 8-megapixel rear-facing shooter, a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera — one particular piece of hardware has managed to stand out.

On the back of Samsung’s new tablet are a pair of proprietary connectors that were rumored to be in place for a new “Flip Cover” accessory. Now, just two days before Samsung’s big event, SamMobile has received some pictures of what is said to be the company’s new Flip Cover. Yep, Flip Cover. No fancy names here.

While it’s nothing groundbreaking, these purported shots give an idea of how this accessory will be used. It looks like the real thing to us, but we should most likely have confirmation within the next 48 hours.
