Samsung is the only tablet manufacturer that has a lineup featuring Super AMOLED displays and today the Korean giant revealed the successor of its last year’s Galaxy Tab S range. The Galaxy Tab S2 will still come in two size options but this time, Samsung has reduced the display size of its larger Galaxy Tab S to 9.7-inches.
The tablets are geared towards consumers who want to read and consume more content, thanks to the Super AMOLED Display that supports QXGA resolution 2048×1536 pixels. Moreover, the displays output 94% Adobe RGB colour standard and comes with Adaptive Display that adjusts gamma, saturation, and sharpness based on the app and Reading Mode to adjust the screen brightness for prolonged reading sessions without straining the eyes.
The Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 and Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 have just 5.6mm of thickness and weighs 389g (9.7 -inch) and 265g (8.0 -inch). Despite the thin form factor, the tablets pack a punch and comes with an octa-core processor, 3GB RAM, LTE support, 8 megapixel rear-facing camera, 2.1 megapixel front-facing camera, fingerprint sensor, 32GB/64GB internal memory, microSD card slot supporting up to 128GB and 5870mAh battery (9.7) or 4000mAh battery (8.0).
The tablets run Android 5.0 Lollipop and integrates Microsoft Office apps like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote, 100GB of free cloud storage from OneDrive for two years, Pop-up Window, and Multitasking.
The tablets will be available from August 2015.
