Samsung is one company that really wants to make tablets viable and consistently releases devices to appeal to people who play games, but also e-books, magazines and newspapers. If you are in the market for a super high end device, the Galaxy S2 might be up your alley.
Samsung says the Galaxy Tab S2 is the company’s “thinnest and lightest tablet of its size ever”. It is 5.6mm thin, with the 8-inch version weighing 265g and the 9.7-inch version getting a weight of 389g. Both versions have a Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2048×1536.
Both versions of the tablet will have Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box, along with an octa-core processor, with four cores running at 1.9GHz and the other four at 1.3GHz. Both will also have 3GB of RAM, an 8MP rear camera and a 2.1MP front facing camera. Both Galaxy Tab S2 models will have a fingerprint scanner, and a way to run two apps on the screen at the same time.
Samsung hyped up the device, saying “The tablet also presents deeper contrast and more precise detail to provide a best-in-class reading experience with the Super AMOLED display delivering 94% of natural tones to show true-to-life colors (Adobe RGB color standard). Users can now enjoy galleries of vividly detailed photos and effortlessly shop online while viewing the most accurate images on the Galaxy Tab S2.
In addition, 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 color 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.”
