Source are reporting they have obtained pricing details about several Samsung tablet devices that should be hitting the market sometime this summer. It has been a year since Samsung released their Galaxy Tab S, the last major upgrade for the company’s high-end tablets. Samsung has several variants of a successor line of tablets, Galaxy Tab S2 devices, in the works along with an entry level Galaxy Tab E. This is the first word we have seen regarding pricing for the devices.
The new Galaxy Tab S2 devices are slated to come in either an 8-inch or 9.7-inch size. The smaller of the two, in a WiFi only configuration, is expected to be priced at €399 ($442 USD) while the larger screen will add an extra €100 bringing the price up to €499 ($553 USD). Adding in support for 4G LTE connectivity to the 9.7-inch version will result in a price tag of €589 ($652 USD).
Meanwhile, the Galaxy Tab E budget-oriented device running Android KitKat is expected to be priced at €199 ($220 USD) in international markets.
The Galaxy Tab S2 devices were expected to have been announced in June. Having missed that deadline, it is unclear when Samsung will actually launch the new line of tablets. The Galaxy Tab E was already announced in India and is expected on shelves in Taiwan before the end of the month, but availability in other markets has not yet been announced.
