Back in July Samsung announced the Galaxy Tab S2, their newest flagship tablet. Today the device is officially available for pre-order (see links below). Several US carriers will also carry the tablet near the launch day of September 3. AT&T will have the tablet available from launch day while T-Mobile will being offering the Tab S2 on September 4. Also, Sprint, US Cellular, and Verizon have committed to carrying the tablet but have not specified an exact launch date.
There are four models of the Tab S2, a 8.0″ and 9.7″, both sporting WiFi-only and LTE variants. The variants both feature Super AMOLED displays, octa-core processors, 3GB of RAM, 8MP rear-facing cameras, and decently sized batteries. Both size variants are super thin, measuring just 5.6mm thick. This is honestly impressive considering this is thinner than flagship smartphones like the S6 and iPhone 6. You can get the tablet in black, white, or gold colors. The build on these tablets is not as premium as the S6 or Note 5, neither of the tablets feature glass backs.
The WiFi 8″ model will cost $399, while the WiFi 9.7″ variant will check it at $499. All of the LTE variants will be priced by carriers as usual. T-Mobile currently only has the payment plan option listed with payments of $27.09 / 23 months + $26.92 for the 24th month, this totals $648.61 before tax. Both Amazon and Best Buy are taking preorders as well, and you can get a $100 trade-in credit toward the S2 with a qualifying tablet exchange.
