Samsung released a set of high-end tablets, Galaxy Tab S line, in 2014 which set the bar for all other Android tablets. Not only did the tablet have an incredibly thin design with high-end specs to match, but it also had a Super AMOLED display in which no other tablet could match the color range or contrast ratio of the S line. Quite simply, the Tab S was a hit, in both 8″ and 10″ versions. I would argue that Samsung shot itself in the foot by offering way too many tablets last year, which confused consumers, and most don’t even know the Tab S even existed.
Now that the Tab S has been out for about a year now, we are anticipating the next generation to be released soon. Photos have leaked onto a foreign website, and if the pictures are of the actual Galaxy Tab S2, we are going to in for quite a treat. Samsung appears to have done away with those ugly dimples(they were functional for grip), and went with a smooth back which makes the device look like an enlarged version of the Galaxy S6. The photos also show two clips in the back of the device for clicking in a keyboard case or just simple protective cover.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is rumored to come with a QHD display with Super AMOLED, 3GB of RAM, an Exynos processor, 16GB of internal memory, an 8-megapixel camera, and it is supposed to be the slimmest tablet ever created by Samsung at a super thin 5.4mm. One major downside in owning the Tab S(I have both sizes, 8″ and 10″) is the battery life. The Tab S gets maybe 5-7 hours of on screen time which just isn’t that great for a tablet. If Samsung does release the Tab S2 and it is 5.4mm, I sure hope they optimize battery life to be more efficient.
