Ultra-thin Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 and S2 9.7 could be announced next week
Samsung is reportedly getting ready to announce two new high-end Android tablets next week, on July 20. According to Dutch website GSM Help Desk, the two slates are the Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 and Galaxy Tab S2 9.7, of which we've already heard quite a few things.

The Tab S2 8.0 and Tab S2 9.7 appear to be successors to the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and Galaxy Tab S 10.5 from last year, both seemingly coming with high-end features, and ultra-thin bodies (under 6 mm).

The Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 will be the smaller among the two new devices, sporting an 8-inch Super AMOLED display with 1536 x 2048 pixels, while the Tab S2 9.7 should offer a 9.7-inch Super AMOLED screen with the same pixel resolution. Both displays have 4:3 aspect ratios, just like Apple's iPads. The new Galaxy Tabs should have plenty of common features, including 64-bit octa-core Exynos 7420 processors, 3 GB of RAM, 8 MP rear cameras, and 32 GB of storage space.

As previously reported, prices for the Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 could start at $399, while the Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 should be more expensive, possibly starting at $499. We assume that Samsung will sell the new Tabs in the US, as well as in many other parts of the world. Who's interested?
