Industry insiders claim the second iteration of Samsung's tablets with Super AMOLED display are currently under development and could hit the market this summer.

Samsung unveiled the first tablet featuring a Super AMOLED display back in June 2014 and it seems like the second iteration of the Galaxy Tab S lineup will follow about one year later. Two weeks ago, model SM-T825 was spotted on Zauba, an Indian import tracking database. Obviously that Samsung did not confirm anything yet, but since the original Galaxy Tab S carries the model numbers SM-T700 and SM-T800, it seems natural for the SM-T825 to be a new Tab S model.

Now, an exclusive report by SamMobile claims that model numbers SM-T710 and SM-T810 are being developed by Samsung. According to the same source, the only part that can be improved at this time is the slate's processor as the Exynos 5420 "just isn’t enough to power the 2560×1600 displays." Other than that, it is obvious that Galaxy Tab S 2 will be loaded with Android Lollipop.

There is no other info on the features of these new Galaxy Tab S slates available at this time, but we will keep an eye on the topic. Unfortunately, it seems Galaxy Tab S 2 will not be present at MWC in Spain next month.

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.
