Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 press render leaks

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 press render leaks
Just the other day, we told you that the svelte Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 tablets will be officially unveiled next week. Samsung is expected to introduce two different models of the tablet, one with an 8-inch screen and the other with a 9.7-inch screen. At the rumored dimension of 5.4mm thin, both new slates would be the slimmest ever produced, thinner than the 6.1mm Apple iPad Air 2.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 and Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 replace last year's Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5. Besides changing the screen sizes of the Super AMOLED display on the tablets, the aspect ratio of the screen has been revised to 4:3, making for improved web browsing. The resolution has also been changed from 1600 x 2560 to 1536 x 2048. The latter happens to be the same resolution employed by Apple on the iPad Air 2.

The new tablets also have a more powerful 64-bit Exynos 7420 SoC under the hood, carrying an octa-core 2.1GHz CPU and the Mali-T760 GPU. That happens to be the exact same chipset that powers the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge. The new tablets will be equipped with 3GB of RAM inside along with 32GB of internal storage. If it is more memory that you seek, a 128GB capacity microSD slot is available. The back to front camera combo comes in at 8MP/2.1MP.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 (SM-T710) is expected to be priced at $399 for the Wi-Fi only version of the slate. The 4G LTE version (SM-T715/717) should be priced at $498. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 (SM-T810) is believed to be priced at $499 for the Wi-Fi only version and $598 for the model with 4G LTE connectivity (SM-T815/817).

The two tablets have been on our radar since all the way back in February when word first leaked out about them. Now, with the devices about to meet the light of day, a new press render has been leaked, looking similar to the ones we showed you recently.

typo 2.1 mp front camera not 21.mp I believe. .slate looks beautiful but aspect ratio┬┐┬┐ I hate when Samsung tries do wat Apple does .. if Samsung copies every Apple ergonomics from phones to tablets , why should we opt for their products instead of Apple? It's annoying Sammy lovers are losing the uniqueness Sammy gave them. ...

The iPads did 4:3 way before the Nexus 9, perhaps you should get your info correct.

I thought these slates would come with a metal unibody?? Looks like cheap plastic on the back.

Well to me, it looks elegant and pleasing, unlike the previous Tab S.

Looks like the Xperia Z tablets plastic, which is solid.

I can't really comment in the Z4 tablet, but the back of my Nexus 9 looks s**t after not only one year! Certainly a lot worse than a metal back would look after one year of intense use!

I have been waiting for ages. Should have been released by now.

Can't believe they are challenging Apple head-on with this tablet.

Is the camera sticking out??? If yes, then that is the stupidest thing I have ever seen on a tablet! You would not even be able to put it on a flat table!

You are not familiar with Samsung phones and tablets eh? Samsung products always have the camera bumps because they want them thin as possible while still putting in grade A optics. Their solution? They place the camera bump in an area where it lays completely steady on a table. It just props up the tablet slightly but is completely sturdy. It's just like the pop up tabs on keyboards where the tab just angles the keyboard for better typing and viewing. The camera bump just changes the viewing when on a table slightly but other wise it lays solid because it's square in the middle and not off to the side like on the iPhone 6.

Sorry my friend, but what you say is only true for small devices. If a ~10" tablet in landscape mode has ONE bumb in the middle it is absolutely not goingg to sit stabile in a flat surface!

...2 corners...1 camera bump...hence a tripod design that has been known for many years to be a stable, minimalistic format...how is it not going to work on a flat surface? ...

4:3 aspect ratio is not owned by Apple. 4:3 aspect ratio is used on standard definition TV. Fyi: 4:3 (1.33:1) sd 16:9 (1.78:1) hd/uhd (consumer 4k) 1.9:1 4k (true 4k) 2.39:1 cinemascope aka scope, anamorphic.

Noone owns anything, if company A succeds at something while the company B tried a different less successful route and than copies company A... It's obvious and apparent. It's too bad Samsung fans just can't accept how much Samsung copies Apple.

I honestly dont get the point of it needing to be super thin....it just makes it more breakable, a smaller battery, and possibly a dumb looking camera that pokes out. I would rather have a 10mm tab to have a huge battery, not so it just "looks good"

why not put a LED flash on back, then it would be a plus above the ipad.
