Samsung has announced today that it will start selling the Galaxy Tab S2 tablets in South Korea from August 11th. There are two models in this series, the 8 inch and 9.7 incher, priced at $513 and $617 respectively. The bigger unit will also come in a bundle version, with a keyboard case, at $685.


After setting waistline records with the Galaxy A8 handset, Samsung also made the thinnest tablets on the market, the Tab S2 units. Both measure just 5.6 mm in thickness and weigh 392 and 272 grams respectively. A nifty aspect here is that the products come with LTE-A support and bright, crisp Super AMOLED panels with 94% Adobe RGB color standard.

Inside we find an octa core Exynos processor, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. A fingerprint scanner is upfront and an 8 megapixel camera at the rear, plus a 2.1 MP shooter upfront. The 9.7 inch model has a 5870 mAh battery, while the 8 incher has a 4000 mAh unit. The screen resolution in both cases is 2048 x 1536 pixels.
