Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 press render leaks

Press render of the Samsung Galaxy S2 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).
