It would seem that Samsung are currently working on the next version of the popular Galaxy Tab S line up, and according to latest rumours Samsung are intending on releasing the successor to the popular Android device in two different screen sizes; an 8-inch and also a 9.7-inch version.
The latest bit of information comes directly from the folk over at SamMobile who have revealed the supposed specification of the new Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 device.
As you’d probably expect, the Galaxy Tab S2 will be a high-spec tablet and as well as being offered in two different screen sizes, it’s thought that both variants will still have Samsung’s Super AMOLED displays with an aspect ratio of 4:3. Interestingly, the information suggested that the Galaxy Tab S2 will actually feature a slightly lower resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels, instead of the 2560 x 1600 pixels seen on its predecessor; however, to be honest that’s not really something to worry about as the differences are that minimal Its unlikely you’ll see this with the naked eye.
It’s said that both tablets will feature the Exynos 5433 processor but there’s a possibility of Samsung bumping it to Exynos 7420 along with Cat 6 LTE support. Other specifications of the Galaxy Tab S2 include an 8MP camera for photos and videos, 2.1MP front-facing camera, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage which can be expanded via a microSD card slot. When focusing on battery performance, the 8-inch version is said to come with a 3,580 mAh battery while the bigger version will feature a slightly bigger 5,870 mAh battery.
At the moment, there is no word as to when the Galaxy Tab S2 will be officially announced, although the report mentions that it’s a possibility that it will be in the middle of 2015. As ever, if we manage to get any more information, you can be assured we’ll let you know.
