Samsung officially unveils Galaxy Tab S2


Samsung has officially taken the wraps off their new Galaxy Tab S2 tablets. The tablets come in two sizes, 9.7″ and 8.0″. The device is only 5.6mm thin and weighs in at only 389 g for the 9.7″ variant or 265 g for the 8.0″ variant. Samsung has also optimized the Super AMOLED display for the best content viewing experience:

The tablet also presents deeper contrast and more precise detail to provide a best-in-class reading experience with the Super AMOLED display delivering 94% of natural tones to show true-to-life colors (Adobe RGB color standard). Users can now enjoy galleries of vividly detailed photos and effortlessly shop online while viewing the most accurate images on the Galaxy Tab S2.

In addition, the Galaxy Tab S2 continually offers its advanced screen technology to display bright and natural content for a more comfortable visual experience. Adaptive Display intelligently adjusts gamma, saturation, and sharpness based on the application, the color temperature of the viewing environment and ambient lighting. Also, Reading Mode modifies the screen’s brightness level to help users to read content for longer periods of time without straining their eyes.

The tablet features a beautiful metal frame that looks very similar to the design-language of the Galaxy S6 and upcoming Galaxy Note 5. Samsung also included the familiar fingerprint scanner on the Tab S2. The press release also mentions improved multi-tasking, but from the description I don’t see what is incredibly new from the current Samsung productivity features. The tablet features 3GB of RAM, will come in 32 GB and 64 GB variants, and will be available in August 2015. There is no information on pricing, but Samsung does mention that LTE variants will also arrive (probably much later).

"I am currently a researcher and Adjunct Professor at Arizona State University and Grand Canyon University. I fell in love with Android with the Nexus One release and realized that it was superior to iOS in all the ways I care about. I still use a Mac (and an iPhone for the camera), but my Apple tech products pale in comparison to my number of Android devices (watches, tablets, and phones). When I’m not rooting/modding one of my many Android phones or doing math/programming, you can find me taking in Phoenix Suns/Arizona Diamondbacks games in downtown Phoenix, and drinking good beer!"
