Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 to be thinner than the iPad Air 2

Last week we told you that Samsung is allegedly busy working on a couple of successors for last year’s Galaxy Tab S line of tablets with Super AMOLED touchscreens. And today we get a couple of details about them, revealed through a new rumor on the matter.

Apparently we should expect the new Tab S tablets to come in 8″ and 9.7″ options. Those are different screen size measurements compared to their predecessors, which are offered in and Nexus 9 tablet.

Previously we’d heard about another duo of upcoming Samsung tablets with 4:3 aspect ratios, the Galaxy Tab A and A Plus. So now it seems that those weren’t just a test case for the new aspect ratio – Samsung has already decided to use it for more devices.

Since the aspect ratio will change, the Tab S2 line will sport different resolutions compared to the original Tab S units. Exactly what those will be is unknown at this point.

But what we do know, according to the same rumor, is that both the Tab S2 8.0 and the Tab S2 9.7 will be thinner than the Apple iPad Air 2. That device’s thickness comes in at just 6.1mm. Furthermore, the new tablets will employ metal frames, in order to make them have a premium feel.
