Latest Galaxy tablet has the thinnest and lightest metal frame on the market
Samsung Electronics today announced the global launch of the Galaxy Tab S2, the most immersive Samsung tablet to date.
Samsung’s newest Galaxy tablet delivers a Super AMOLED display, optimised for reading and viewing all types of digital content. Stylishly designed with the thinnest and lightest metal frame on the market, the Galaxy Tab S2 is packed with powerful performance features, offering a range of new and improved choices in productivity and multitasking.
Said Conor Pierce, vice president, IT and mobile division, Samsung Electronics UK and Ireland: “Building on the great success of the Galaxy Tab S, the new Galaxy Tab S2 is the slimmest and lightest tablet on the market, and also continues to offer the Super Amoled display in a more versatile 4:3 format. Giving people seamless access to a wealth of enhanced productivity features. We believe the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is the ultimate device for people looking to upgrade to the latest viewing experience, combined with a fantastic device that enhances their day to day life.”
At just 5.6mm thin and weighing in at 389g for the 9.7 inch version, and 265g for the 8 inch version, the Galaxy Tab S2 is designed for reading and consuming content due to its Super AMOLED Display. By recreating the same viewing experience of browsing through traditional print media, the Galaxy Tab S2 makes it comfortable to read digital content. This reading-optimised ratio provides people with a seamless reading experience without unnecessary scrolling, the company stated.
The tablet also offers deeper contrast and more precise detail to provide a good reading experience with the Super AMOLED display, which delivers 94% of natural tones to show true-to-life colours (Adobe RGB colour standard).
In addition, the Galaxy Tab S2 provides advanced screen technology to display bright and natural content for a more comfortable visual experience. Adaptive Display intelligently adjusts gamma, saturation, and sharpness based on the application, the colour temperature of the viewing environment and ambient lighting, while Reading Mode modifies the screen’s brightness level to allow users to read content for longer periods of time without straining their eyes.
Packaged within the world’s slimmest and lightest metal frame of its size, the Galaxy Tab S2 is portable enough to easily carry around all day and operate in one hand, offering the best mobility available. With its fashionable and stylish design, the device is suitable for any purpose or setting, enabling people to enjoy the best viewing experience anywhere, anytime.
Additionally, the device is focused on enhancing and supporting productivity. The tablet comes fully equipped and preloaded with Microsoft Office Solutions (Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote) for ultimate productivity on the road, including the ability to create and edit documents, while conveniently storing up to 100GB of files on the cloud via OneDrive for two years for free. The device is also compatible with the advanced Book Cover Keyboard, delivering the same convenience of a standard PC keyboard with a built-in trackpad for executing tasks on the go.
For enhanced manageability, the Galaxy Tab S2 is built with a touch-enabled Fingerprint Scanner for hassle-free authentication. A built-in advanced security sensor offers easy access to the device with a simple press against the home key.
The Galaxy Tab S2 also comes equipped with Smart Manager which displays the device’s settings automatically and offers a range of streamlined device management options, including battery power levels, storage and RAM availability to help people efficiently manage their devices. It is also pre-installed with anti-malware for an extra layer of protection.
In addition, the Galaxy Tab S2 offers Multitasking, allowing users to view and run two apps simultaneously with Pop-Up Window, a new feature that lets people easily navigate between multiple apps at once. The Galaxy Tab S2 also provides an improved storage structure that makes locating files simpler than ever.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 will come in a variety of connectivity, storage and size options: 9.7 inch and 8 inch versions with Wi-Fi, or Wi-Fi and LTE, available in 32 or 64GB with MicroSD up to 128GB. It will be available in global markets, starting from August 2015.
