Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 said to be unveiled in June, Wi-Fi only and LTE models allegedly planned


As some may already know, a couple of distinct sources claim that the second-generation Samsung Galaxy Tab S series of Android tablets will come with a very thin profile and a 4:3 display aspect ratio. According to a recent report from Sammobile, the Galaxy Tab S2 will be officially unveiled in June, 12 months after the unveiling of the first-generation line-up.

Although sources are undecided between 5.4mm and 5.5mm as the thickness of the tablets in Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 series, the fact that these tablets will be launched as the thinnest tablets in the world appears to be almost certain. At the moment, the thinnest tablet in the world is the 6mm-thick Dell Venue 8 7000.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is said to come in 8-inch or a 9.7-inch flavours. Like with the original Galaxy Tab S series, Samsung is expected to launch both Wi-Fi only and LTE-enabled versions of the tablets. Rumors specs include Super AMOLED panels with a resolution of 1536 by 2048 pixels, a 64-bit Exynos processor (likely the Exynos 7420 that powers the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge) paired with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of integrated storage space, a microSD card slot, optional Cat. 6 LTE connectivity provided by a Samsung modem, an 8MP primary camera, and a 2.1MP secondary sensor on the front.

Aside from being the slimmest tablets around, the Galaxy Tab S2 tablets are rumored to be very light as well, with the 8-inch version tipping the scales at 260 grams, and the 9.7-inch version weighing 407 grams. With the Galaxy Tab S2 release date rumored for June, it won't be long before we find out if these rumored specs turn out to be accurate.
