In further light of rumours, Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 has been spotted at China’s Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center (TENAA). The bold successor of last year’s Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 has been labeled with the model number SM-T715C.
Reportedly, it features an 8.0 inch AMOLED display spanning 2048 × 1536 pixels with a 4:3 aspect ratio with dimensions of 198.2 × 134.5 × 5.4 (mm). Weighing at just 260 grams and 5.4 mm thin, the Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 could well be the thinnest tablet on the market.
Talking about hardware specs, it looks to run on a 1.9GHz octa-core CPU (probably an Exynos 7420), 3GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal memory (expandable up to a 128GB). It sports an 8MP main shooter and a 2MP front-facing camera. Connectivity wise, the tablet shows support for LTE networks.
According to the certification, the Galaxy Tab S 2.0 runs on Android 5.0.2 Lollipop but we can likely expect Android M (or whatever it will be called) at the time of launch. Of course nothing can be said until Samsung officially announces it. We can expect it to be available in two screen sizes of 8.0 and 9.7 inches later this year.
