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.
