The Galaxy Tab S was impressive, and it shone brightest when it came to multimedia, and in particularly watching videos and films. It looks to be the same story again with these upcoming models. Samsung’s press materials also play up the ease of reading media on the 2048 x 1536 pixel super AMOLED display, though we’ll reserve full judgement until we’ve had a chance to get them into our hands for a deeper test.
On the specs side of things, the Galaxy Tab S2 runs Android 5.0 Lollipop, and under the hood it is powered by an octo-core processor — which pairs four 1.9GHz cores with four 1.3GHz cores — with 3GB RAM and 32 or 64GB of internal memory. The latter is expandable to 128GB via microSD cards.
Media-wise, the tablets sport an eight megapixel rear camera and 2.1 megapixel front camera. That’s not bad for a tablet, but we’d still rather see people taking photos and video on their phone or — god forbid — a dedicated camera, rather bungling around with an oversized a tablet.
Samsung said the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 will go on sale across the world in August. It looks like the models will be available in white and black, but Samsung hasn’t said how much they will cost.
