The thin-and-light tablet gets a new shine starting for 520 Euros.

Samsung will begin selling the Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 Gold Edition starting October 26th. The WiFi and LTE models will retail for 520 Euros and 600 Euros, respectively. Aside from the attractive Gold back cover, both variants will come with a slim cover that doubles as an adjustable stand for up to three different angles. The cover can be securely attached in just two quick snaps.

Core specifications for the Galaxy Tab 9.7 S2 include:

  • 9.7-inch Super AMOLED display
  • 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution
  • 5.6 mm thick
  • 389 grams

Expect the LTE version to weigh just a bit more than its WiFi-only sibling. The tablet also comes with a fingerprint sensor on the Home button for fast unlocking.

In our detailed review, the LTE-enabled Galaxy Tab 9.7 S2 received high praise for its quality workmanship, thin and lightweight chassis, and its great display with excellent contrast and precision touch sensitivity. On the flip side, the tablet suffers from average performance and noticeable throttling, both of which may deter enthusiasts.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
