Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 appears at the FCC and in new leaked photos
Last week, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 (SM-T715) visited China's TENAA agency where it received approval for use in the country. Both this model and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 (SM-T815) will become the slimmest slates sold with both measuring a svelte 5.4mm thin. The two high-end tablets will replace the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5, respectively.

In addition to visiting TENAA, the Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 also paid a visit to the FCC where a diagram of the device was published. In addition, a couple of pictures of the tablet appeared on French blog NWE. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 will feature an 8-inch Super AMOLED screen with a 1536 x 2048 resolution. That works out to a 320ppi pixel density. Under the hood is the 64-bit Exynos 7420 SoC, the same chip that powers both the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge. The SoC contains an octa-core 2.1GHz CPU and the Mali-T760 MP8 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of internal storage. Those requiring additional memory can take advantage of the 128GB capacity microSD slot. An 8MP camera adorns the back of the slate while a 2.1MP front-facing snapper handles selfies and video chats. Android 5.0 is pre-installed.

So far there is no word on how much Samsung plans to charge for the tablets. Nor do we know when Sammy plans on unveiling these top-shelf devices. Considering that the FCC and TENAA have both certified the Galaxy Tab S2 8.0, it might not be terribly long before both tablets see the light of day.

Thanks for the tip!
