The FCC database has apparently listed a coming Samsung tablet earmarked for Verizon. Phone Arena says this listed slate could be the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2, which was officially unveiled several weeks back.
The alleged Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 has been tied to the model number “SM-T567V,” where the letter “V” appended at the end indicates a Verizon model. The FCC listing points out that the device supports LTE bands 2, 4 and 13. Needless to say, the aforesaid bands are used by Verizon Wireless. The FCC listing also has a sketch of the tablet resembling the recently introduced Galaxy Tab S2, according to Phone Arena. Entries in the Zauba database, which is the import-export tracker in India, show the device tied to the same model number as listed with the FCC.
The Galaxy Tab S2 slate comes as two variants. One of them has a 9.7-inch display and the other one comes with an 8.0-inch screen. Phone Arena says these devices are the thinnest and lightest tablets ever made in this size category. To be specific, the slate is only 0.22-inch or 5.6 mm thick. This means the Galaxy Tab S2 is 0.02-inch slimmer than the Apple iPad Air 2. Furthermore, the 9.7-inch model reportedly weighs 13.7 oz or 389 g, whereas the 8.0-inch version weighs 9.35 oz or 265 g.
Samsung Mobile Press says, the 9.7-inch Super AMOLED display clad variant comes packed with 2,048 x 1,536 pixels resolution. The slate is powered by Samsung’s own Exynos 7 chipset, with an octa-core processor and backed by 3 GB of RAM. There is an 8 MP primary camera and a 2.1 MP secondary shooter. Other key Galaxy Tab S2 features include 32 GB/64 GB of native storage, microSD card support and a killer 5,870 mAh battery unit. Plus, the slate comes in Wi-Fi and LTE variants.
