We store today Monday July 20, and such, and as the latest leaks of last Saturday promised us, this was the day chosen by Samsung to officially presented its new range of tablets, a Galaxy Tab S2 that we already carry a few months listening to, but today he finally become a reality.
New Samsung tablets come with two different screen sizes, 8 and 9.7 inches, both equipped with the Super AMOLED technology and the 4:3 format, and stand out by his risky bets on 5433 Exynos processors and its extreme thinness of only 5.6 mm. Are the successors of the Galaxy S Tab which must be to highlight? We will now check it.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S2, specifications
The Korean company has just with his penchant for 16:10 aspect ratio, and for its new bet on the 4:3 tablets with two impressive Super AMOLED 8 and 9.7 inch displays, both with a resolution of 2048 × 1536. The tablet will come framed with an aluminum frame, but in the back we will have to settle for a finish plastic.
In terms of its power, Samsung has decided to try to reduce costs using the processor Exynos 5433 furnished in its Galaxy Note 4, four-processor Cortex A57 at 1.9 GHz and other four A53 1.3 GHz, instead of betting on one more modern as the 7420 that leaks had been taken for granted. Even so the users can rest assured, because despite the decision hardly is going to Miss power to run any game or application.
The Galaxy Tab S2 also equipped 3 GB of RAM, 32 or 64 GB expandable using microSD card and 2.1 and 8 megapixel Flash cameras. Both tablets will have a fingerprint sensor, equipped Android 5.0.2 and come powered by a battery 5,870 mAh for the 9.7 inch variant and 4,000 mAh for the smaller version.
And finally, 9.7-inch version will have measures of 169 x 237,3 x 5.6 mm and a weight of 389 grams, while that of eight-inch will stay at 134.8 x 198,6 x 5.6 mm and 265 grams. As you can see, your extreme thinness and featherweight they are two of the main characteristics of these devices, though so they have had to make a huge sacrifice in terms of the capacity of the batteries is concerned.
Prices and availability
Each of the two models of this Galaxy Tab S2 will have both a version with connectivity for LTE / 4G as another with just Wi-Fi, they will come to the market starting from the month of August and in its minimum configurations with 32 GB of internal storage memory, its price change would remain as is:
- Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 Wi-Fi: €399

From my point of view, there will be three aspects as the have an already somewhat outdated version of Android, a low-capacity batteries and a somewhat outdated processor that could adversely affect face to the most demanding users, but for the ordinary mortals will be a alternative more worthy that they should not to give any problems for use in day to day. We will have to wait for the analysis to judge.
