Introducing the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2

Samsung has announced the global launch of the Galaxy Tab S2. The Galaxy Tab S2 is both thinner and lighter than its predecessor, while offering two options for screen size. Samsung’s newest Galaxy tablet delivers a Super AMOLED display on both of the 8-inch and 9.7-inch models. The Tab S2 will come with Android 5.0 Lollipop, and will be powered by an Octacore processor. This will be run by two quad-core processors: the first at 1.9GHz and the second at 1.3GHz. This means that the new tablet packs powerful performance features to offer enhanced usability, providing users with new and improved choices in productivity and multitasking.

Some Additional Features…

The Galaxy Tab S2 continually offers its advanced screen technology to display bright and natural content for a more comfortable visual experience. Adaptive Display intelligently adjusts gamma, saturation, and sharpness based on the application, the colour temperature of the viewing environment and ambient lighting. Also, Reading Mode modifies the screen’s brightness level to help users to read content for longer periods of time without straining their eyes.

The tablet comes fully equipped and preloaded with Microsoft Office Solutions for ultimate productivity on the road, such as creating and editing documents, while conveniently storing up to 100GB of files on the cloud via OneDrive for two years for free. Also, it’s compatible with the advanced Book Cover Keyboard that delivers the same convenience of a standard PC keyboard with a built-in trackpad for executing tasks on-the-go.

For enhanced manageability, the Galaxy Tab S2 is built with a touch-enabled Fingerprint Scanner for hassle-free authentication. A built-in advanced security sensor now offers easy access to the personal device with a simple press against the home key. For the most streamlined device management options, the Galaxy Tab S2 features Smart Manager which displays the device’s settings automatically, including battery power levels, storage and RAM availability for users to efficiently manage their devices. It is also pre-installed with anti-malware for an extra layer of protection.

In addition, the Galaxy Tab S2 offers Multitasking, allowing users to view and run two apps simultaneously. Also with Pop-Up Window, users can easily navigate between multiple apps at once. The Galaxy Tab S2 also provides an improved storage structure that makes locating files simpler than ever.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 will come in a variety of connectivity, and storage options: with Wi-Fi, or Wi-Fi and LTE, available in 32 or 64GB with MicroSD up to 128GB. It will be available in global markets, starting from August, 2015, but no pricing has been announced as of yet.
