Samsung's Ultra-thin Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 and S2 9.7 could be announced next weekThe Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and Galaxy Tab S 10.5 from last year have successors and they appear to be the Tab S2 8.0 and Tab S2 9.7, both seemingly sport high-end features, and ultra-thin design (under 6 mm).

The Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 will be the shorter among the two new devices, with an 8-inch 1536 x 2048 pixels Super AMOLED display, while the Tab S2 9.7 should offer a 9.7-inch Super AMOLED screen with the same pixel resolution. And just like Apple’s iPads both displays have 4:3 aspect ratios. There are plenty of common features that would be seen among the new Galaxy Tabs, including 64-bit octa-core Exynos 7420 processors, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage space and 8 MP rear camera.

As previous reports, the Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 could start at a price of $399, while the Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 should be more expensive, possibly starting at $499. We speculate that Samsung will sell the new devices in the US and in many other parts of the world.
