Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 will be announced in June

Samsung logoAs most of you surely remember, Samsung has been hard at work on the successors to the premium Galaxy Tab S duo. The Tab S2 will come in two sizes - an 8.0-inch and a 9.7-inch one and will utilize 4:3 aspect ratio screens. Industry sources now hint at a June announcement for both tablets, so, it shouldn't be long now before Samsung's high-end tablet lineup gets the update.

Both sizes of the Tab S2 are expected to come in a Wi-Fi-only, as well as a Wi-Fi + LTE variants, which amounts to a total of four new devices. According to previous rumors, the new tablets will be exceptionally thin, even thinner than the iPad Air 2. The alleged measurements are 237.1 × 168.8 × 5.4 mm for the smaller one and 237.17mm x 169.58mm x 5.4mm for the other. This would not only make the device “razor thin”, but would, effectively crown it the thinnest Samsung tablet to date. They are pretty light as well, at 260 grams and 407 grams respectively.

As far as the alleged specs sheets go, the slates should feature 2,048 x 1,536 pixel screens, just like recent iPads and the Nexus 9. Both devices should also be powered by one of Samsung’s own Exynos chipsets, which has a big.LITTLE CPU configuration, with four Cortex-A57 cores and four Cortex-A53 ones. The maximum clock speed will be 1.9 GHz. The GPU is a hexa-core Mali-T760MP6. RAM and camera, however, seem to be directly borrowed from the current Galaxy Tab S. That is 3GB for RAM and an 8MP camera.
