The second-gen slate with Super AMOLED display is expected to feature a Samsung Exynos SoC, Cat.6 LTE connectivity, and to ship loaded with Android 5.0.2.

The second generation of Samsung's Galaxy Tab S tablet is not official yet, but it looks that can change any day now. SamMobile's "trusty insiders" have just revealed all the specs and features of this upcoming slate which is expected to arrive in two sizes - 8-inch and 9.7-inch.

Just as their predecessors, the two Galaxy Tab S2 models will have a lot of common features, the main difference being the screen size. These are the highlights uncovered by the source mentioned above:

  • Processor: Exynos 5433 or Exynos 7420
  • Memory/Storage: 3 GB RAM; 32 GB internal storage and microSD support up to 128 GB
  • Display: 8-inch and 9.7-inch Super AMOLED multitouch with 2,048X1,536 pixels
  • Cameras: 2.1 MP front, 8 MP rear
  • Connectivity: Cat.6 LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS
  • Operating system: Android 5.0.2 Lollipop
  • Battery: 3580 mAh (8-inch model) and 5870 mAh (9.7-inch variant)
  • Weight: 0.57 pounds and 0.89 pounds

While SamMobile's inside source revealed the design of this new slate includes a metallic frame, it is not known if that involves a full metal back or just the sides. There is no word on pricing yet, but only that "a mid-2015 release is likely."

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
