Specs of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 2 9.7 (SM-T815) leak on GFXBench

IMO there should be a tablet SOC, not the 5433
Like how the iPad has an A8X, not the A8 (extra CPU core and double the GPU clusters)
Samsung should have made a 14nm "7420X" with higher CPU clock rates and the T760MP16 (16 clusters instead of 8 clusters in the S6)
Still a huge improvement over last years' Tab S though
But I disappointed they followed the Nexus 9's 4:3 screen

I am more disappointed about the screen resolution. It's just like an iPad.

Same, I have a iPad Mini 2 (got as a present) and hate that the screen is 4:3, 16:9/16:10 is far better for media and gaming
Samsung should have used 3:2 for a better compromise (like the Surface Pro 3)

IMHO Exynos 5433/7410 is perfectly fine for the 8'' model - faster than the A7 iPads and competitive with a hyphotetical A8 iPad mini 4.
For the 9.7'' I agree with you - if they don't want to use 14nm for tablets chips they could simply take Exynos 5433/7410 and double its GPU - 20nm T760MP10 or MP12 should be possible for larger tablets. Anyway these new tablets should be 100x more responsive than last years version, considering Exynos Note 4 pushes QHD just fine and the Tab S 2 uses a lower-res iPad-like screen.
For those who dont know - this SoC is now called Exynos 7 Octa (Samsung renamed it after launch) - GFXBench info is probably outdated.

Exynos 5 doesn't sound right to me. Tab S is supposed to be the flagship device, so why use there a weaker CPU than on the S6? A more understandable way would be to use the Exynos 7 of the S6 and overclock it because of better cooling...?

Last year, all of the S Tabs without the S800 had the 5420 instead of the 5422 so I can see them doing it again. They just keep letting the ipad win :(

that would be very sad.
Was thinking about buying a tablet and this one was looking like a good choice. But not with a processor that is not absolute top notch

Look the 5433 is up to 810 so why give more, they be be adding a 810 ver and all that crap to, I.e. Why they go with the 5433 in 64 bit mode

strange to see a newer and bigger TabS2 9.7 resolution (2048x1536) is even lower than a older and smaller TabS 8.4 (2560x1600)

I have the original Tab S, and this item is very disappoint as I surely wanted the newer model. I don't want 9.7 which seems like a downgrade from 10.1 and 4:3 vs 16:10 is also a downside.
Lowering the res from 2560x1600 to the same as the iPad also sucks. Especially since I paid 379 for the Tab S which is cheap than the iPad with suckier specs. To mke your specs suck like the iPad, well sucks.
I guess I will wait and see what they do with the Note Pro. If they ruin that then I guess I won't be owning a tablet. I can't stand the iPad an to go ruin the Tab S my making it into one sucks.

I am writing this on the Note 8. I really wish they would bring a smaller screen with the pen back.
