US Cellular has announced that they will be carrying the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2, the 9.7″ tablet set to launch this month. If you’re unfamiliar with US Cellular, they’re the 5th biggest carrier in the United States. They’re headquartered in Chicago Illinois and serve 4.76 million people in 426 markets across 23 states.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 will come to the carrier on Friday, September 11th in stores and online. US Cellular will offer the Tab for $0 down which will translate to a payment of $27.50 for 24 months. Some quick back-of-the-napkin math puts the total price at $660 plus tax. Customers also have the option to pay off the Tab early if they so choose or pay up front. Qualified customers can add it to their Shared Connect plan for as little as $10 per month.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 will feature a 9.7″ 1536 x 2048 Super AMOLED screen which puts it at 264 ppi.

Storage options are 32 GB and 64 GB with a micro SD card slot that can add up to another 128 GB of storage. There will be 3 GB of ram and it will be powered by a Samsung Exynos 5433 quad-core processor.
