It’s known that Samsung is working on a replacement for the well-received premium tablet Galaxy Tab S. The successor Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 has reportedly been spotted with flagship Galaxy S6-like design and leaked specifications. But now, a new leak shows the apparent case design of the tablet and other key features.
In general, case and cover makers are the first to get specs on a device before its release. This is to make sure they can design and manufacture cases according to the actual dimensions, to make them available during the tablet release. The Galaxy Tab S2 case is no different. A bumper back cover of the Galaxy Tab S2 has reportedly been spotted by the credible tipster @OnLeaks.
The silicone protector seems to go with the larger 9.7-inch Galaxy Tab S2 model. In addition, Samsung is working on an 8.0-inch model. This information is in line with the predecessor Galaxy Tab S, as it came with two screen sizes. Plus, the aspect ratio of the new Galaxy Tab S2 is 4:3, according to GSM Arena.
As for as the key Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 specifications, the 9.7-inch and 8.0-inch tablets will flaunt 1,536 x 2,048 pixels screen resolution. Under the hood, the Tab S2 is believed to be powered by Samsung’s own 64-bit Exynos chip, aided by an octa-core processor and backed by 3 GB of RAM unit. When it comes to memory specification, the tablet will come equipped with 32 GB of in-built storage capacity. Plus, the Galaxy Tab S2 will run on Android 5.0.2 Lollipop OS, straight out of the box.
For cameras, the device will sport an 8 MP rear-facing unit and a 2.1 MP front-facing shooter unit for selfies and video chats. According to NWE, the Galaxy Tab S2 will be released in four variants: 8.0-inch display + Wi-Fi, 8.0-inch display + 4G LTE, 9.7-inch display + Wi-Fi and 9.7-inch display + 4G LTE. The Galaxy Tab S2 release is reportedly set for June, but Samsung has not confirmed the Galaxy Tab S2 specifications thus far.
