Samsung this week have ready two releases: the announcement of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and the departure of the Galaxy Tab S2, although there is much expectation placed around the phablet, Koreans Tablet suggests ways to become one of the best of the year candidates. On September 3 it comes to Spain but we already know some data about your marketing and reservation.
On 14 August will begin the reserve of the tablet at the Samsung Spain shop at a price of 429 euros in the eight inch WiFi model. On the supermarkets such as Carrefour and El Corte Inglés, Mediamarkt, will start a week later, on 21 August. In both cases, the same supplement will give away when you book it: a case.
429 euros to 629, depending on configuration
429 euros will be for the most basic model (8 inches and WiFi connection), if we want this same size with 4 G connection the figure climbs to 529 euros. The 9.7-inch S2 Tab will cost 529 euros with WiFi and 4 g 629. All of them with the same memory configuration: 32GB expandable up to 128GB microSD cards.
As in other models of Samsung, the tablet will come with several applications pre-installed in memory, including a copy of Microsoft Office for Android. This year we have not had many releases in this product category, but all indications are that it will continue in the line of the Tab (S) last year, a great tablet but with the same problem as other models: the ecosystem in this format.
What does the Galaxy Tab S2? The main renewal can be found in the design: metal body with fine finishes and quality. In fact, its thickness is only 5.6 mm. A very attractive figure that hopefully does not compromise the battery which in the case of the 8 inch model are 4,000 mAh and the 9.7 5,870.
The hardware is top range device: Exynos of 3GB of RAM and 64-bit 8-core processor. Same screen resolution for both models (1536 x 2048 pixels) with Super AMOLED panels. The differences between them are reduced to the size and battery capacity, the rest remains the same.
There is no doubt that the Tablet is attractive in terms of design and performance but is the mystery about the State of the market and if there is still interest in new tablets. Releases this year have slowed and only a few large have encouraged to follow in this category. In fact, it seems that only Samsung will compete, in Android, with the model of Sony.
