Samsung has big plans for this summer, starting with new tablet announcements next month. Traditionally we don’t see many launches during the summer time, but the Galaxy Tab S models were launched last year in the same time frame, so it makes sense for follow-ups to come now.


It appears that we’ll get to see a Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 and Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 in June, with speculations saying that at least one of them will be thinner than the iPad Air. There will be four versions of the tablets, including WiFi and WiFi + LTE units. Reports say that the Galaxy Tab S2 will include a premium metal build, as well as a 64 bit Exynos processor, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage.

Android 5.0.2 Lollipop will be on board as well, plus a microSD card slot, a Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels and LTE Cat 6 connectivity. Camera-wise, we’ll get an 8 MP back shooter and 2.1 MP front shooter. The product will debut in US, Canada, some European markets and China next month.

    I believe these are suppose to be 4:3 form factor, so I’m guessing the 8″ LTE tablet will be too wide for my big pockets. An 8″ 16:9 tablet will fit. I’ll measure soon. Hope they are Google Fi ready.

    They will both fit in your pocket if you fold them in 4th’s.
    I opted for the 4:3 one and that’s how I carry mine, in my pocket.
    The time it takes to fold or unfold is so miniscule that it’s not a problem.
    Though, I still find myself wondering if I shouldn’t have gotten the 16:9
    If money was no object I would get both and snap them together, I heard they fit together like lego’s.
