Unannounced Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 4G LTE update to Android 5.0.2 reportedly appears in KIES

Unannounced Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 4G LTE update to Android 5.0.2 reportedly appears in KIES
Even though the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 and Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 have yet to be officially introduced (that is expected to take place next week), the Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 reportedly has a firmware update waiting for it on Samsung's KIES in Germany. The update is for the SM-T815, which happens to be the 4G LTE version of the tablet, and takes the device to Android 5.0.2.

Yesterday, we passed along an image alleged to be a press render of the Galaxy Tab S2. At 5.4mm, both the 8-inch and 9.7-inch versions of the slate will be the thinnest tablets produced to date, and will be powered by the same Exynos chipset found inside the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge.

The update to the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 will apparently take the tablet to firmware version T815XXU1AOG5. If the report is legit, it can be considered a huge confirmation that the ultra-thin tablets are indeed on the way.

Thanks for the tip!

Exynos 5433? Samsung has to be joking.

the Exynos 5433 is the only 64-bit samsung chip that still supports expandable storage...the ones used in the tab S and Note 4 were locked in 32-bit mode

That's quite disappointing yes but the only saving grace is that there is a chance that it still might out bench the GS6 due to the bigger battery/footprint reducing thermal throttling and the fact that a 64 bit version of the 5433 might be crazy still. But I am guessing they just have too many Note 4 chips lying around and all the higher end Exynos chips will be used for the GS6. The bigger question is...which is the better choice between the Exynos 5433 vs the SD808. I think the 5433 is probably slightly better with 64 bit mode enabled.

Exynos 5433 that's what I've been telling people for weeks, it's all there in geekbench, and it's locked in 32-bit btw. Same SoC as in their 1 year old tablet with stupid 4:3 lower resolution screen. NOT buying.
