Samsung released its existing flagship tablet, the Galaxy Tab S2, back in July last year which means that it won’t come out with a new one for the next couple of months. However, it appears that the company has released a slightly updated version of the Galaxy Tab S2 and that too rather quietly. It’s a minor update which doesn’t feature any design changes that would warrant a proper launch announcement for this product.
Samsung appears to have already released the updated Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 and Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 to retailers in Germany who are selling them right now with prices starting at €449.
The updated models feature the 64 bit octacore Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor as opposed to the original model which was powered by the Exynos 5433 processor. A slight decrease in GPU performance is noted in the new models.
These updated versions also come running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow straight out of the box which is a good thing since users don’t really like waiting for too long on major software updates.
Other than that, it’s pretty much the same tablet with its Super AMOLED display, 8 megapixel rear and 2.1 megapixel front camera, 3GB RAM, fingerprint sensor, 32GB onboard storage with microSD card support and more.
Samsung hasn’t confirmed as yet when the updated models of the Galaxy Tab S2 will be released in other markets across the globe.
