Build and Screen

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 flaunts an awesomely slim design, measuring just 5.6 millimetres in thickness – thinner than the ultra-slim iPad Air 2. It has a plastic chassis accentuated with a metal frame, which probably explains why it weighs significantly less than the iPad with an all-metal body.

As its name suggests, the tablet crams in a massive 9.7-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen with an impressive resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels – same size and resolution as the one on the iPad Air 2. The multi-touch display has a pixel density of 264 pixels per inch.

Performance and OS

A capable octa-core Exynos 5433 processor runs the show on Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7. This 64-bit chip delivers significantly better performance, at least on paper, than the chip used for the iPad Air 2.

Better performance and high responsiveness is further ensured with a greater 3 GB of RAM. The new Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 will runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop OS, probably overlaid with its maker’s TouchWiz user interface.
