This past year Samsung launched the Galaxy Tab S collection bringing the 'S' from its smartphone up to the tablet side. We reviewed the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and Galaxy Tab S 10.5 together with the summary they were the firms best ever tablets. So we've also been looking forward to discovering out what Samsung would provide to the table using the Galaxy Tab S2.

"The Galaxy Tab S2 is not only our thinnest and lightest tablet of its size ever, this also gives users fast, easy access to a wealth of superior viewing and efficiency features," said JK Shin, president of Samsung Mobile. "We trust the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is probably the most complete personal visual device developed for consumers to bring and use anywhere."

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 release date and price

Rumours encouraged that the new Galaxy Tab S2 models would arrive in June and while SamMobile is quite reliable, which didn't quite happen.

Nevertheless, Samsung has basically published the tablets and we can at this time uncover that each Galaxy Tab S2 models will appear in August. Samsung says 'available in international markets, beginning from August' so we're going provide a UK launch date as soon as we can.

We're also waiting for UK prices but the Galaxy Tab S2 tablets could well be the same price in pounds as they are in Euros but that would make them more costly that last year's models. Discover the full prices listed below.

Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 Wi-Fi: €399

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 specs and features

Not really as thin as leaked information said, the Galaxy Tab S2 tablets are simply just 5.6mm thick and weigh 265g (8.0) and 389g (9.7) respectively. That's still impressively svelte though with the previous models at 6.6mm.

The display size has decreased on both types and so offers the resolution, from 2560 x 1600 to 2048 x 1536 but Samsung has trapped with its preferred Super AMOLED technology. The firm says they supply 94 percent Adobe RGB and additional screen features include Adaptive Display which automatically adjusts gamma, saturation, and sharpness and Reading Mode which gives you the proper brightness.

Creating the screens smaller is exciting, particularly on the much larger design that now matches the iPad Air 2 and Samsung has changed the design and style from predominantly landscape to portrait, once more reflecting its Apple-made rival.

Several of the specs across the two dimensions are the identical and as such, every Galaxy Tab S2 arrives powered by Samsung's own Exynos 5433 processor (four 1.9GHz Cortex A57 cores and four 1.3GHz Cortex A53 cores) and a Mali T760MP6 GPU. That's the similar chip as identified in the non-Snapdragon Galaxy Note 4 and there's also 3GB of RAM.

Each have an 8Mp rear camera, 2.1Mp front camera, 11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, GNSS and optional 4G LTE. You will be able to buy the Galaxy Tab S2s in both 32- or 64GB storage volumes and the tablets have a Micro-SD cards slot that can take up to 128GB.

Apart from the weight and screen size, one other main difference is the battery that is 4000mAh in the 8in Tab S2 and 5870mAh in the larger 9.7in device. The fingerprint reader remains but has become touch rather than swipping like the Galaxy S6 phones

Obviously, Android 5.0 Lollipop is pre-installed and you'll will also get Microsoft Office and 100GB of OneDrive storage space free for two years. Software features involve Pop-Up Window and Smart Manager which 'displays the device’s configurations instantly, which includes battery levels, storage space and RAM availableness for customers to efficiently manage their units'.
