Samsung has just revealed its plans to launch a new consumer tablet, the Galaxy Tab S2. It will be available worldwide in August in both 8-inch and 9.7-inch versions.
Samsung says the Galaxy Tab S2 is the company's "thinnest and lightest tablet of its size ever". It is 5.6mm thin, with the 8-inch version weighing 265g and the 9.7-inch version getting a weight of 389g. Both versions have a Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2048x1536. Samsung says:
Both versions of the tablet will have Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box, along with an octa-core processor, with four cores running at 1.9GHz and the other four at 1.3GHz. Both will also have 3GB of RAM, an 8MP rear camera and a 2.1MP front facing camera. Both Galaxy Tab S2 models will have a fingerprint scanner, and a way to run two apps on the screen at the same time.
Both models of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 can be bought with either Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi and LTE. Internal storage options for the tablets will be 32GB or 64GB, with a microSD card to add up to 128GB of extra storage. Pricing for the tablets have yet to be revealed.
