The world's tablet competition used to be in the doldrums for the last few months, with the only notable release being sony's Xperia Z4 Tablet. Samsung shook things up the other day, though, releasing the world's thinnest tablets, the Galaxy Tab S2 8.0
and Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7
, each measuring the incredible 5.6mm thin, and weighing just 265g and 389g, respectively, despite the metal chassis.
Those two will be competing directly with slates that are a bit thicker, but no less impressive, like Apple's iPad Air 2
and Sony's Xperia Z4 Tablet
The overall dimensions of Samsung's slates are pretty compact, as you can see in the hands-on video below, and the tablets get sprung into action, flaunting bright, beautiful 2K Super AMOLED displays, too. As a reminder, the S2 tablets are powered by octa-core Exynos chipsets, come with 3 GB of RAM, and have 8 MP cameras on the back, capable of 4K video recording. Check them out.
