From Samsung they have just presented the Galaxy Tab S2, the thinnest and lightest tablet manufactured so far by the company. Specifically, the company has released two different versions of the new Galaxy Tab S2, whose main difference is the size of its screen.
The larger model features a 9.7-inch Super AMOLED display (the same inches as the iPad Air 2) with a resolution of 20481536 pixels. In this way, the company has left behind the traditional 10.5 inches, which means that has gone from the traditional 16: 9 format to 4: 3, already characteristic of the Apple iPad. As for its measurements, it weighs just 389g (the WiFi version) and is 5.6 millimeters thick, 0.5mm less than the latest iPad Air. If we focus on the technical characteristics of this new range, the tablet incorporates an octa-core processor (four cores at 1.9GHz and four at 1.3Ghz), 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage (there is the option of 64GB). The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 also incorporates an 8-megapixel outdoor camera and a 2.1 front camera, as well as a fingerprint reader. Also, Samsung has launched an 8-inch alternative for all those users who prefer a smaller tablet. The characteristics of this version are the same as those of the version with a 9.7-inch screen. As for its weight, that of this model is 265 grams (the version with WiFi). In addition to the size of the screen, the main difference between the two is that the smallest has a 4,000mAh battery, while the 9.7-inch model includes a 5,870mAh battery. As for software, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 will be marketed with the latest version of Android Lollipop. Of course, we can expand the capacity of both models with microSD cards up to 128GB. Both versions will be available in configurations with WiFi or WiFi + LTE.
Without a doubt, it is a very interesting tablet for all regular users of Android devices. Be available for sale during the next month of August, although the official price of it is currently unknown.
