Is this the 9.7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab S2?

The latest rumored specs for the slate include a 9.7-inch AMOLED display featuring a 2048 x 1536 resolution. Samsung is going with a 4:3 aspect ratio for this model. Under the hood will be a 64-bit octa-core CPU with 32GB of native storage inside. From the picture, we can see that a microSD slot will be available for those seeking additional storage. Android 5.0 will be pre-installed and there should be Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi/4G LTE variations.
Both the 9.7-inch and 8-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 are expected to be unveiled next month.
Thanks for the tip!

Amoled (most likely pentile crap) 2048 x 1536 resolution on 9.7-inch. Its going to be a pixelated mess (unless they use RGB stripe).

If I wanted 4:3 ratio 2048 1536 resolution on a 9.7 inch screen I'd get a IPad (which I already have) How about something a little more 2015ish? I'm not happy with 4:3 ratio on my iPad & expect a 9.7 inch tab to have at least the same amount of resolution as a 2014 Galaxy Note or even the Samsung Nexus Tab from back in the day

Amoled is most useful when you use it to watch video, which is best at 16:10 aspect ration. But with this "new" 4:3 ratio its not going to be the as enjoyable as previous version. So, there goes the best advantage Samsung's tab has over Apple's tab. And if you consider the overall scenario iPad has unprecedented tablet app system that android platform can only dream off. I don't see any android tablet surpassing iPad anytime soon. The ecosystem alone makes the iPad the best tablet out there.

While i don't agree with the pixelated issue you brought up, since at these high resolution it is almost impossible to notice any pixelations with the naked eye, i TOTALLY agree with you regarding the tablet app system the iPad offers, Android is lacking in this department, and the reason i had my Tab S 10.5(sold now) is for watching videos or web browsing.

First the display isn't quite 10 inches & the resolution basically works out to about the same resolution as full HD at 1920 1200. Not a pixilated mess but definitely not in the same league as the display on the 8.4 inch Samsung Galaxy tab

iPad Air 2: 9.7" with 4:3 ratio in 2014 Samsung Galaxy Tab S2: 9.7" with 4:3 ratio in 2015 This explains it all. A cheap copycat iPad Air 2!

When did Samsung (or a whatever OEM) have 16:9 phone? Thousands of years ago? Apple had it in late 2012. Surprised!??? Galaxy S1 4-inch display in 2010 iPhone 5 4-inch display in 2012 Galaxy S3 4.8 inch display in 2012 iPhone 6 4.7 inch display in 2014 Galaxy Note 5.3 inch display in 2011 iPhone 6 5,5 inch display in 2014 What an "expensive" copy cat of Samsung (HTC, Nokia, Motorola, Sony,...) phone!

Man you people are so annoying! You make it seem like Apple invented the rectangle/square and the 4:3 aspect ratio. So because a company makes a device That's rectangular and has a certain aspect ratio means they copied apple? Does that mean apple copied everyone else when they released the iPhone 6 plus with a 1080p screen? Yes I will admit apple did bring the 4:3 ratio mainstream but come on tvs, computers etc have been doing it YEARS before apple even became relevant
