While Samsung might have recently announced new phones in the form of the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge+, it seems that is not all the South Korean tech giant is up to. They have just announced a new high-end tablet as well in the form of the Galaxy Tab S2, which will arrive in two different sizes: a 8-inch model and a 9.7-inch model.
Despite the different display sizes, they will have pretty much the same technical specs. Both tablets will have a display resolution of 2048×1536 and will use a Super AMOLED display panel. Under the hood, both tablets are powered by octa-core processors, although it was not mentioned who they are made by, but their clock speeds are the same 1.9GHz for one quad-core cluster, and 1.3GHz for the remaining quad-core cluster.
Both will feature 3GB of RAM and microSD card support, but the 9.7-inch will come in 32/64GB options while the 8-inch model will only offer 32GB. Both will run on Android 5.0 Lollipop and will also feature an 8MP rear-facing camera with autofocus and a 2.1MP front-facing camera. There will be your usual connectivity options like Bluetooth and WiFi, GPS, GLONASS, and will also play nicely with LTE networks if you were to buy a data plan with it.
The WiFi only model will cost $499.99 for the 9.7-inch 32GB model, while the 8-inch 32GB model will cost $399.99. The LTE models have yet to be priced and their availability is expected to be confirmed later. Keep an eye out for more details as we get our hands on both tablets.
