Samsung released an updated Galaxy Tab S2 tablet with improved performance features such as integration of Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor. The refreshed devices of the Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 and Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 are available in Germany through Cyberport.de starting at €449.
Originally announced in July 2015, the South Korean tech giant is expected to announce the tablet’s successor somewhere around July this year. In the meantime, Samsung has secretly released new variants in a bid to occupy the competitive tablet arena.
While the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 is currently available only in an LTE variant (SM-T719N) at a price tag of €479, the Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 (SM-T813N) is available in both Wi-Fi (€449) and LTE (€549) models.
Talking about specifications, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 features both 8-inch and 9.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1536 x 2048 pixels. Samsung has integrated a 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 652 processor, which offers better CPU performance than the original Galaxy Tab S2 with an Exynos 5433 chipset.
While the primary camera features an 8-megapixel sensor with support for QHD video recording, the latest version of Galaxy Tab S2 features the same 2.1-megapixel front-facing shooter.
Featuring Android 6.0.1 out of the box, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 comes with 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage in addition to major connectivity options like microSD card slot, dual-band gigabit Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v4.1, and a fingerprint sensor.
The addition of fingerprint scanner is regarded as one of the most attractive features since there are not many tablets with the sensor. We expect the release of the refreshed variant of the Galaxy Tab S2 in other European markets including India soon.
