T-Mobile will soon sell Samsung's best tablet yet, the Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 (2016)
The 2015 iteration of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 is essentially a slightly updated version of the old Samsung Galaxy Tab S2, but with some improvements in terms of processing power. Samsung has been selling the Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 2016 (that's a mouthful) in certain markets around Europe for a few good months now. Although the tablet market took a dive in recent years, from a positioning perspective, it makes sense for Samsung to bring its best Android tablet to the US market as well.
T-Mobile has yet to make an official announcement but we came to learn that T-Mobile is about to launch the 2016 Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 through a leaked Bluetooth certification. The document, which you can spot in the screenshot below attests that the Samsung Galaxy Tab SM-T818T. The international, 4G-capable Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 (2016) is codenamed SM-T819. Given the similar codename and the T at the end of the model number, we're inclined to believe that this is actually a T-Mobile variation of the Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 (2016).
Compared to its predecessor, the 2016 iteration of the slab comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 chipset, a mobile SoC that integrates four 1.8GHz ARM Cortex-A72 CPU cores, four 1.4GHz Cortex-A53, as well as an Adreno 510 GPU. The old model came with a Samsung Exynos 5433 chipset, which is less powerful than the Snapdragon 652. The Snapdragon 652 chipset is paired with 3GB of RAM and should offer sufficient processing power for basic tasks.
Since T-Mobile has yet to officially announce the Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 (2016), we're currently in the dark when it comes to pricing and availability.
