Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S marked the company’s highly anticipated return to using AMOLED displays on tablets, and as we noted in our review, both the 8.4 and 10.5-inch Galaxy Tab S offer the most stunning viewing experience available in the tablet market today. However, we also noted that the tablets suffered from performance issues, owing to Samsung opting to use the year-old Exynos 5420 processor – which debuted on the Galaxy Note 3 last year – to drive the high-resolution WQXGA (2560×1600) displays.

However, it looks like Samsung is doing something to address that glaring issue with the Galaxy Tab S, at least in its home country, as a Galaxy Tab S powered by Samsung’s new Exynos 5433 chipset has cropped up on the Geekbench benchmark database (carrying model number SM-T805S.) The Exynos 5433 is the most powerful Exynos SoC yet; as we’ve seen on benchmarks, it’s possibly the fastest mobile processor out there barring Nvidia’s Tegra K1, and should help killing off all the performance issues that the Galaxy Tab S currently suffers from.

It’s unclear when this new Galaxy Tab S variant will be launched, but we’ll certainly hope Samsung decides to bring it to markets outside South Korea in the near future (though given the company’s past record, this faster variant will likely stay an exclusive for its home country for a few months after launch.)

Update: We’ve received information that the Galaxy Tab S LTE (SM-T805S/K/L) should launch sometime between mid-October and early November, with support for broadband LTE-A.
