Today Samsung officially introduced the Galaxy Tab S2 slate in China and this is an important development, since this is the world’s thinnest tablet after all, at 5.6 mm in waistline. Also, we get to learn some details about the tablet we previously didn’t know.


The product is available in two versions: an 8 inch one and a 9.7 inch one, with a screen ratio of 4:3, Super AMOLED panel and a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels. WiFi and LTE versions are available, with support for local carriers like China Unicom, China Mobile and more. Inside there’s the octa core Exynos 7433 processor, as well as 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB or 64 GB of storage and a microSD card slot.


The device comes with an 8 megapixel camera, with F/1.9 aperture, particularly impressive for a tablet, I have to say. A 2.1 MP front camera and a fingerprint scanner are also here. The battery versions are 4000 mAh for the 8 inch unit and 5870 mAh for the 9.7 inch unit. Microsoft Office software comes preinstalled and the OS is Android Lollipop with a split screen feature.

Still waiting on the price tag…
