It’s been over a year since Samsung announced its Galaxy Tab S tablets, but reports are saying that July 20th is going to be the day that its new tablets are announced, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2, and unveiled press render images as well. Much like last year’s release, the Galaxy Tab S2 will be Samsung‘s high end tablets, meaning we’ll be seeing all the big gun’s pulled out – according to the rumours, we’ll be seeing two variants, 9.7-inch and 8.0-inch, and both will be powered by the Exynos 7420 (i.e. the chip in the Galaxy S6), 3GB RAM and have a screen resolution of 2048 x 1536 on a Super AMOLED display.
As you can probably see from the above images, it appears Samsung has done away with the 16:10 screen resolution ratio from the original Galaxy Tab S, instead opting for a decidedly more traditional 4:3 ratio (read: more like an iPad) – in fact, the 2048 x 1536 resolution is exactly the same as the iPad Air 2 and both are portrait oriented only. Both are touted to be extremely light and thin with both boasting a thickness of 5.4mm. Indicative pricing for both versions is $399 USD for the 8-inch version, $499 USD for the 9.7-inch version and and additional $99 USD for either version to get LTE functionality.
