Samsung didn’t bring its Tab S2 tablets to Computex, but that doesn’t mean we’re not nearing the launch time frame. A series of pictures of the Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 have appeared online, just as the product was being certified by TENAA. In the meantime the LTE version of the 9.7 inch model was also certified, by the FCC.


Galaxy Tab S2 is meant to be the flagship of Samsung tablets this year and the 8 inch model adopts an AMOLED display with a 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution. It’s supposed to be a very slim tablet, with a waistline of 5.4 mm and an aspect ratio of 4:3. Inside we’ll find an Exynos 1.9 GHz processor, 3 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage. At the back of the slate there’s an 8 megapixel camera, while upfront we find a 2 MP one.

The specs list is completed by LTE, Android 5.0 Lollipop and a microSD card slot. Seeing how slim this device is, we can’t help but wonder if it will be fragile or not. A new Bendgate could be looming, since even last year’s Galaxy Tab S had some construction/overheating issues, at least with initial units, getting deformed easily.
