It was first reported a couple of months back that Samsung is working on a new high-end tablet that’s going to be thinner than the iPad Air. The Galaxy Tab S2 has not yet been officially revealed by Samsung but new information has surfaced online today which will have us believe that this will most certainly be the thinnest tablet that Samsung has ever produced. When compared with previous information it appears that the dimensions of this tablet have been tweaked a bit.
A tweet from @Onleaks claims that the Galaxy Tab S2’s dimensions are approximately 237.17 x 169.58 x 5.5 mm, it was previously reported that the tablet will measure 237.1 × 168.8 × 5.4, so it’s not a major change.
These dimensions are said to be for the tablet’s 9.7 inch variant and it’s also claimed that the company may have made some changes to the tablet’s metal frame.
Galaxy Tab S2’s design is reportedly inspired by the Galaxy S6 but it’s unclear at this point if the tablet will also have a glass back like Samsung’s latest flagship smartphone.
The Galaxy Tab S2 is said to come in two variants, 8 inch and 9.7 inch, with 4:3 aspect ratio and similar specifications. Aside from the metal build this tablet may be powered by Samsung’s Exynos 7 series processor.
Samsung has not yet said when this tablet will arrive, and it hasn’t even talked about its specifications and features yet, so it can’t be said for sure when it will reveal that information.
