The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 LTE has been launched by the company and is available now in retail shops across India. It’s been attached with a Rs 39400 price tag and is arriving in the country after its international unveiling back in July.
The brand claims the 5.6mm thickness of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 LTE makes it the world’s thinnest tablet. The manufacturer hasn’t revealed if it’s releasing the device’s 8-inch variant in India yet. Compared to its predecessor, the gadget’s screen is smaller but comes with a fingerprint scanner integrated within its home button.
Going into its specs, the Galaxy Tab S2 has a 9.7-inch super AMOLED QXGA (2048 x 1536p) display. It’s powered by an octa-core Exynos 5433 processor, with four of its cores clocked at 1.9GHz and the other four at 1.3GHz. The tablet’s memory capabilities consist of 3GB of RAM and 32GB of ROM. Its storage capacity can be expanded up to 128GB via a microSD card.
The 4G-ready Samsung device packs a 5870mAh battery, which is supposed to ensure at least 12 hours of talk time. The voice-calling tablet runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop and houses an 8MP autofocus main lens alongside a 2.1MP front-facing one. Connectivity options consist of Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, microUSB 2.0 and GLONASS.
