We’ve been hearing a lot about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 in recent weeks, and now leaked benchmark results appear to have revealed its full list of specifications ahead of an official unveiling. In addition to an octa-core Exynos processor, the device could ship with Android 5.0.2.
Spotted in GFXBench, the specifications are tied to the larger 9.6-inch Galaxy Tab S2, but it is thought that like last year’s model, both this and the smaller version will be almost identical internally. The only real difference between the two will be their size.
But this device has a 2048×1536 screen resolution, Samsung’s own octa-core Exynos 5 processor clocked at 1.9GHz, ARM Mali-T760 graphics, and 3GB of RAM. There will also be a 7-megapixel camera on its back, and a 2-megapixel camera on its front.
Fans can also expect Android 5.0.2 Lollipop software with Samsung’s new TouchWiz user interface.
There are no real surprises here after what we’ve already heard about the Galaxy Tab S2; everything seems to line up nicely. But it’s thought the biggest changes will be to its design rather than its internal components.
The Galaxy Tab S2 is expected to maintain the same stunning Super AMOLED display its predecessors have, but with a new 4:3 aspect ratio similar to the Nexus 9’s. That’s one of the reasons why the larger model is being reduced in size slightly.
In addition, rumors have claimed the device will sport a new metal frame similar to that of the Galaxy Note 4’s or the Galaxy Alpha’s, and it’s expected to be even thinner than Apple’s iPad Air 2.
It’s unclear when the new Galaxy Tab S2 devices will be announced, but we don’t expect to see them at Mobile World Congress next week. Instead, they’re likely to appear around the summer time when the existing models reach their first birthday.[via Android Authority]
