Samsung builds ‘Midnight Rainbow’ to showcase Galaxy Tab S


Structure on London’s Southbank designed to demonstrate the high quality of the tablet’s screen

Samsung has built a rainbow installation made up of 150 units of the Galaxy Tab S to showcase the quality of the device’s screen.

The ‘Midnight Rainbow’ (pictured), which stood at 14 feet high by 26 feet wide, was unveiled at Observation Point on London’s Southbank on August 19 and used the screens of the tablet to beam the colours of the rainbow.

Samsung also formed a rainbow on its Twitter timeline and invited members of the public to re-tweet their favourite colour of the rainbow using the hashtag MidnightRainbow to be in with a chance of winning a Galaxy Tab S for themselves.

The Tab S was unveiled at a launch event taking place in Madison Square Garden in New York on June 12, with the manufacturer placing a large emphasis on the quality of its screen.

Samsung UK and Ireland president Andy Griffiths said: “The fantastic screen on the Galaxy Tab S is one of its key features. In genuinely offers an unrivalled visual and entertainment experience, and we thought what better way to showcase this than to recreate something that is universally recognised for colour – a rainbow – using those very screens.”

The Tab S is currently available in a number of versions, including WiFi or WiFi and LTE, and in 16/32GB that can be expanded by 128GB with a microSD card.

There are 10.5-inch and 8.4-inch variants in bronze and white. The 8.4-inch SiFi version costs £319, and the 10.5-inch WiFi model is priced at £399.
