Last month, Samsung introduced the world to the Galaxy Tab S2, which comes in two different size variants of 9.7 inches and 8 inches. The company stated that both tablets would launch globally in late August and today, it’s fulfilling at least part of its promise. Samsung has announced US pricing and availability for the Galaxy Tab S2, so let’s dive in and see what we’re looking at.
Pre-orders for both sizes of the Galaxy Tab S2 begin today for the Wi-Fi only model, with the tablets becoming available on September 3. The Galaxy Tab S2 will be sold online as well as in retailers across the US. Samsung is also offering a limited time trade-in option for other tablets that will give users $100 or more to trade in their old tablet and get a Galaxy Tab S2. Pricing for the Wi-Fi model is set at $499.99 for the 9.7-inch model and $399.99 for the 8-inch model
An LTE model will also be available on Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and US Cellular, with exact pricing and availability set to be confirmed by each individual carrier.
For a reminder, the Galaxy Tab S2 features some of the best specs available in a tablet. It packs in a 2048×1536 Super AMOLED display, 1.9GHz octa-core Exynos processor and more within an ultra-thin body that’s a mere 5.6mm thin, making it Samsung’s thinnest tablet to date.
