Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., just announced the global launch of the Galaxy Tab S2. It will be thinner than iPad Air 2, Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet, and Dell Venue 8 7000. Samsung said that its new tablets will be available August onwards, but did not announce the prices yet.
“The Galaxy Tab S2 is not only our thinnest and lightest tablet of its size ever, it also gives users quick, easy access to a wealth of superior viewing and productivity features, We believe the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is the most complete personal visual device designed for consumers to carry and use anywhere.”
JK Shin, CEO and President of IT & Mobile Division at Samsung Electronics.
The Galaxy Tab S was impressive, and it shone brightest when it came to multimedia, particularly watching videos and films. It looks to be the same story again with these upcoming models. Samsung’s press materials also play up the ease of reading media on the 2048 x 1536 pixel super AMOLED display, though we’ll reserve full judgment until we’ve had a chance to get them into our hands for a deeper test.
On the specs side of things, the Galaxy Tab S2 runs Android 5.0 Lollipop. Under the hood it is powered by an octo-core processor, which pairs four 1.9GHz cores with four 1.3GHz cores — with 3GB RAM and 32 or 64GB of internal memory. The latter is expandable to 128GB via microSD cards.
Media-wise, the tablets sport an 8-megapixel rear camera and 2.1-megapixel front camera. That’s not bad for a tablet, but we’d still rather see people taking photos and video on their phone or — god forbid — a dedicated camera, rather than bungling around with an oversized a tablet.
Samsung said the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 will go on sale across the world in August. It looks like the models will be available in white and black, but Samsung hasn’t said how much they will cost.
