Samsung Electronics Canada announced that their new Galaxy Tab S2 will be available to the Canadian retailers on September 16.  The Galaxy Tab S2 is available for pre-order today and Samsung is throwing in a couple of nice extras – if you pre-order the Galaxy Tab S2 by September 15…the day before the tablet’s release…you will be eligible for 50-percent off a Tab S2 Book Cover.  The Book Cover attaches to the back of the device to add some extra security and transforms into a stand for your Galaxy Tab S2.  Buyers also get a two-year subscription for 100GB of Microsoft’s One Drive storage when they purchase the tablet, a three-month premium Next Issue subscription and three months of Google Play Music Premium.  Not a bad deal that allows you to sample a few products.

The Galaxy Tab S2 is Samsung’s “thinnest, lightest and fastest tablet to date.”  The tablet is only 5.6mm for both versions – a Wi-Fi only version that comes in an 8-inch, 43GB model for $499.99 and a 9.7-inch model with 32GB for $599.99 and a 9.7-inch LTE model with 32GB on Bell, Rogers and Telus…pricing and availability will be by carrier.  The Wi-Fi models come in Black, White and Gold while the LTE model is only available in Black. The Wi-Fi models will also be available from Best Buy, The Source, Staples and other retailers beginning September 16th.

Using Samsung’s Super AMOLED displays with a 4:3 aspect ratio gives you a brilliant and beautiful display while the screen ratio allows printed content to fit more naturally on the digital canvas for a better reading experience.  Samsung’s Adaptive Display technology automatically adjusts the screen settings based on what you are doing – reading, gaming or watching videos.

This flagship Galaxy Tab S2 uses Samsung’s Super AMOLED QXGA display with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels and is powered by a 64-bit Exynos 5433 octa-core processor with four cores clocked at 1.3GHz and four cores clocked at 1.9GHz.  It is packing 3GB or RAM and 32GB of internal storage and has a microSD card slot to add an additional 128GB.  The Tab S2 comes with a healthy 8MP main camera and a 2.1MP front-facing camera (FFC) for social media selfies or video chatting.  The 8-inch model gets a 4000mAh battery and the 9.7-inch model jumps that to 5870mAh giving both tablets the ability to make it through the day.
