Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 release date, news and rumors
Slim, stylish and very powerful. The Tab S2 has the iPad in its sights.
The iPad Air 2 is still at the top of the tablets, but Samsung came very close to knocking it off its perch with the Samsung Galaxy Tab S - a slim and powerful slate with a stunning screen and good battery life.
Now we're hearing rumblings of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 and if rumors are to be believed it could be an even closer iPad Air 2 competitor, with a slim build, a metal frame, a 4:3 aspect ratio and both 8.0-inch and 9.7-inch size options, making it a clear alternative to both the iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 3.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 release date
There's no real world on when we might see Samsung's next super slate, but the original Galaxy Tab S launched in late June 2014, so there's a chance we'll see the Galaxy Tab S2 sometime around then as well, especially as rumors are starting to leak out.
