Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 and Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 officially launched

Samsung has officially announced its next-generation flagship tablet, Galaxy Tab S2, that offers top-of-the line hardware and a sleek metal body. It features a high-resolution Super AMOLED display with a squarish 4:3 aspect ratio, a 64-bit octa-core processor, a fingerprint sensor, and Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system.

Samsung has released this tablet in two screen size variants – 8.0-inch and 9.7-inch – with Super AMOLED displays and a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels. This tablet runs a newer version of TouchWiz that is based on Android 5.0 Lollipop, and is powered by an 64-bit octa-core Exynos 5433 chipset, 2GB RAM and 32/64GB of internal storage space. Both of them will be available in Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi + Cellular variants. The thickness of the duo is merely 5.6mm, which makes them the thinnest tablets in the world, at least as of now.

A touch-based fingerprint sensor is used in this tablet instead of a swipe-based fingerprint sensor that was used in the Galaxy Tab S, which was released last year. Good thing is, Samsung is still offering a microSD card slot inspite of the company removing it from the Galaxy S6 and the upcoming Galaxy Note 5.

no support for 2300 mhz band.
poor battery backup
not exactly state of art internals.

should not cost more than tab s ( 30000 for lte)

otherwise it is bad deal
