High-end Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 pictured, could become the world's thinnest tablet
According to recent rumors, Samsung is about to announce two new high-end Android tablets that will succeed last year's Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and Galaxy Tab S 10.5. The new slates will probably be called Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 and Galaxy Tab S2 9.7.

We already saw a few renders that allegedly showed the Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 (model number SM-T815), and now it's time to take a look at the Tab S2 8.0 (model number SM-T715).

Approved today by China's Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center (also known as TENAA), the Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 sports an 8-inch AMOLED display with 1536 x 2048 pixels and a 4:3 aspect ratio, weighs 260 grams, and measures 198.2 x 134.5 x 5.4 mm. At just 5.4 mm, the Tab S2 8.0 should become the world's thinnest tablet, but we'll just have to wait for Samsung to officially announce the device before giving it this title.

The S2 8.0 runs Android Lollipop, and is powered by an octa-core processor clocked at 1.9 GHz (most likely, this is an Exynos 7420). Other features include LTE, 3 GB of RAM, a 2 MP front-facing camera, 8 MP rear camera, and expandable internal memory (starting at 16 GB).

You can take a look at the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 in the slideshow below. In case you don't think the tablet is too attractive, we can tell you from our experience that virtually all devices photographed by TENAA look worse than in reality.
