The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is an upcoming tablet, judging by increased chatter on the interwebs, and the device leaked above in what looks to be an official render seems to represent the slate. Judging by what we see above, we should expect a device that resembles the Galaxy Tab A (at least in terms of the metal frame), which just recently made it to the US.
The leakster claims we should expect a Galaxy S6-like design, in which case premium should be written all over it (something that also explains the metal chassis, but we’re not sure about the glass back). If that is truly the case, we’ve said it before, that a Galaxy S6-inspired Samsung tablet would mean serious competition to Apple’s iPad.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 should have a 9.7-inch screen (but an eight-inch variant is also possible), and it’s thickness should be around 5.9mm, just a hair below 6. The image reveals a home button (which, if Galaxy S6-inspired, would double as a fingerprint scanner), as well as power and volume buttons on the side. The same right side is where you can clearly see the slots for microSD expansion, as well as probably a SIM (since there are two pinholes).
June is what the rumor mill has us circle in our calendar, and, as far as the specs are concerned, we heard mentions of a Quad HD Super AMOLED display, Samsung’s own 64-bit octa-core Exynos processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB storage (though higher options are probably, expandable via microSD card), eight-megapixel main camera, 2.1MP webcam, plus the usual suspects that include Wi-Fi ac/b/g/n, LTE Category 6 capabilities, Android 5.0 and Samsung’s own, toned-down skin.
