Samsung Galaxy Tab S to get exclusive Marvel content Earlier this week, Samsung unveiled their Galaxy Tab S lineup of tablets, offering devices as thin as the market leading iPad Air and iPad Mini.
As an extra bonus for the new tablets, consumers will get some exclusive goodies from Marvel Comics.

Each new tablet will come bundled with a free three-month subscription for Marvel Unlimited, giving access to all of Marvel's library for digital comics.

In addition, Tab S owners will also get exclusive sneak peeks at upcoming Marvel movies, potentially starting with the new Avengers: Age of Ultron. It is unclear what is part of the sneak peeks besides early access to trailers.

"Samsung is passionate about the stories around our products and the people to use them," said Younghee Lee, Executive Vice President of Global Marketing, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics. "Partnering with Marvel gives us the opportunity to bring our industry-leading mobile display technology to life. Through visual storytelling made possible by Marvel's outstanding entertainment universe, Samsung's Galaxy users will be able to enjoy the maximum of our product benefits."

The devices have Super-AMOLED displays with a resolution of 2560 x 1600, built-in fingerprint readers, runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat, and has Samsung's own suite of applications including Knox and embedded hardware security that should interest enterprise users. Under the hood is a ridiculous Exynos 5 Octa chipset (a 1.9GHz quad-core chip, a 1.3GHz quad-core chip and 3GB of RAM), 16GB internal storage (microSD slot accepts 128GB cards), 802.11 abcn Wi-Fi with MIMO, WiFi Direct, Bluetooth 4.0 and dual cameras, 8MP and 2.1MP. The battery promises about 11 hours of use, on par with the iPad Air.

Prices start at $399 for the 8.4 and $499 for the 10.5-inch tablet. Both are set for release on July 10th.
