Purported pricing info for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0, Tab S2 9.7, and Tab E pops up

The appeasing slates will certainly get succeeded sometime in the near future, as we are more than certain Samsung is brewing something in secret, i.e. the second generation of its top-tier tablet lineup.
We already know that it will consist of two 5.4mm-thin devices - the Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 and the Galaxy Tab S2 9.7. The alleged pricing of the upcoming slates just got freshly leaked by SamMobile: the Wi-Fi version of the Tab S2 8.0 is said to cost 399 EUR ($439.5), whereas the Tab S2 9.7 will probably have a 499 EUR ($549.5) price tag. The Wi-Fi/cellular version of the latter is normally expected to be costlier at 589 EUR ($648.78), though there's no definite info about the pricing of its cellular version of the smaller slate.
Both will have Super AMOLED displays with a resolution of 1536 x 2048 pixels, 64-bit Exynos 7420 chipsets (similar to the ones in the Galaxy S6 & S6 edge), 3GB of RAM, as well as a base native storage of 32GB (a microSD card slot is also a part of the feature mix). A rear 8MP camera and a front-facing 2.1MP one will appear on both slates. Android 5.0 will be the OS of choice.
Additionally, SamMobile revealed the international price of Samsung's most recent tablet, the low-end Galaxy Tab E, which was already announced a few weeks ago - it will most likely convey a 199 EUR (~$219) price tag.
Anyone interested in any of these?

I don't understand why in store, Samsung devices always run the commercial apps that run constantly which make the phones and tablets to be very sluggish when tried. The tab S I tried in store runs terribly slow and laggy.

No interest in these new Tab S2's, but I hope introducing them drives the price of the Tab S 8.4 down.

I'd be a definite customer if they kept the aspect ratio at 16:9 and the resolution at 2560 x 1600, especially for the Tab S 8.4, with the 7420 processor. If not, I intend to purchase the current one, hopefully at a lower price point. I already purchased one but my wife liked it so much that I eventually just gifted it to her. Samsung just don't seem to get that there is a sizeable constituency out there that are not looking to buy a "Samsung iPad." If I wanted an iPad, I would get an iPad, not a Samsung lookalike.

What I'm more upset is how they change the screen's aspect ration from 16:10 to 4:3.

Actually a lot of people prefere 4:3. If you use your tablet for work (e.g. emails, browsing, Microsoft Office), I find 4:3 a lot better for such a small screen. Obviously for movies it is s**t.

Will they come with an aluminium unibody? Is there any information about that? I am desperately looking for a device that is like the iPad Air 2 on the outside but with Android, a microSD-card-slot and a ~12" screen (I'll take ~10" if there is nothing else). I am wondering if there will come anything to the Android market to combat the 12" iPad Air Plus...

Damn so much CHOICES to choose from... And u r like why Samsung want us to have a choice.. They should make one tablet and if the customer don't like it then they should go get 1 from the competition....

I am just waiting until it releases and will pick up the 9.7. Surprisingly it hasn't been announced yet so they are either going to have a surprise release or this thing is coming out until August or September.
