Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8 being tested in India, then destroyed
You might remember the Zauba website. This is the site that tracks imports and exports into India. According to a listing from Friday, Samsung imported into India one Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8 for testing and evaluation. According to the site, the slate is being destroyed after Samsung India is through with it. One last piece of information. According to Zauba, Samsung put a value on the tablet of $252 USD.

The Samsung Galaxy S2 8 and its larger sibling, the Samsung Galaxy S2 9.7, will be the thinnest tablets at 5.4mm thin. That is even more svelte than the Apple iPad Air 2, which weighs in at 6.1mm slim. Sammy has reportedly chosen to go with a 4:3 aspect ratio on the two tablets. The screens are of the Super AMOLED variety and will feature a resolution of 2048 x 1536. This matches the resolution of the Apple iPad Air 2's 9.7-inch glass.

Both the Samsung Galaxy S2 8 and Samsung Galaxy S2 9.7 will be powered by the same octa-core Exynos 5433 CPU that powers the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. However, we could see the 64-bit Exynos 7420 under the hood by the time the tablet is introduced. 3GB of RAM is on board with 32GB of native storage. An 8MP camera is on back with a 2.1MP snapper available for selfies and video chats. The 3850mAh battery keeps the lights on, and the slate supports Cat.6 4G LTE connectivity. A recent Geekbench test showed Android 5.0.2 running the Galaxy S2 8.

No word yet on when these metal-framed beauties are expected to be officially unveiled.

Thanks for the tip!
