A while ago we found out that Samsung is working on a new high-end tablet device called Galaxy Tab S2, slate that is supposed to be one of the thickness out there available on the market. If at first, this device was expected to be launched in July, it seems that now we might get to see it in Fall, more precisely in October.

From what we got to know, Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 will be available in 8 and 9.7 inch variants with 2048 x 1536 pixels resolution. Inside the 5.4 mm body, we’ll get an octa-core Exynos 5433 processor clocked at 1.9 GHz, 3 GB of RAM memory, a 8-megapixel rear camera and  4G LTE connectivity.

According to other leaks, is expected that Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 to run Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system and to offer a display with 4:3 aspect ration, an AMOLED one. You must know that the price tag of such a tablet will be pretty high, so if you want it, then it’s time to gather some money until October.

    Let us hope the good news about this is that the tablet becomes better than expected. The bad news is that summer will be gone when the tablet appears, so I, who I want to use a tablet mainly in the garden, might as well wait until spring and see if there will be more attractive tablets by other companies. If the tablet had appeared in July, it would be clear advantage of Samsung to come out before the iPad Air 3. October means that people can easily compare and choose the latter if it will be better.

    Samsung used to issue new models of a kind every half a year, but Tab S to S2 will be ca. 15 months. Given this very long period and the preliminary experience with Tab A, the S2 must be become excellent according to the endconsumers’ expectations. What would this mean? A battery duration of 12 to 14 hours, a new but reasonably cool CPU, less display mirroring than the iPad Air 2 if not even a matte display and greater brightness than the Tab S without forcing automatic brightness adjuustment on the user, a rear camera that does not disturb a flat back and no instead of some crapware and more reliable WLAN than ever (compare Dell’s 40m range!). Given the proclaimed 5.4mm thinness, it is unrealistic though to expect a replacable battery. However, Samsung could promise timely Android updates for at least 3 years.

    If Samsung wants to grow again, such must be the Tab S2. Otherwise, the long delay since the Tab S would disappoint the endconsumer, who expects premium quality if he shall pay a premium price, especially if the Pad Air 3 will be significantly better than the Air 2.

    Another killer feature? A version of the S2 with Cherry Trail and Windows 10… (Sorry, dreaming, Samsung will never be that good.)
