Samsung has announced the global launch of the Galaxy Tab S2, which features a Super AMOLED display optimised for reading and viewing any type of digital content. The Galaxy Tab S2 claims the thinnest and lightest metal frame on the market, with powerful performance features.
“The Galaxy Tab S2 is not only our thinnest and lightest tablet ever, it also gives consumers quick, easy access to a wealth of superior viewing and productivity features,” said Craige Fleischer, Director of Integrated Mobility at Samsung Electronics South Africa. “We believe the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 sets the bar for tablet devices and offers consumers the ultimate Tablet that’s designed for ultimate portability.”
Samsung provided the following information on the device:
At just 5.6mm thin and only 389g (9.7 inch) and 265g (8.0 inch) weight*, the Galaxy Tab S2 is perfectly designed for reading and consuming content due to its stunning Super AMOLED Display. By recreating the same viewing experience of browsing through traditional print media, the Galaxy Tab S2 makes it comfortable to read digital content, including e-books, magazines, webpages and newsfeeds. This reading-optimised ratio allows the user to enjoy a seamless reading experience without unnecessary scrolling.
In addition, the Galaxy Tab S2 continually offers its advanced screen technology to display bright and natural content for a more comfortable visual experience. Adaptive Display intelligently adjusts gamma, saturation, and sharpness based on the application, the colour temperature of the viewing environment and ambient lighting. Also, Reading Mode modifies the screen’s brightness level to allow users to read content for longer periods of time without straining their eyes.
The tablet also presents deeper contrast and more precise detail to provide a best-in-class reading experience with the Super AMOLED display delivering 94% of natural tones to show true-to-life colours. Users can now enjoy galleries of vividly detailed photos and effortlessly shop online while viewing the most accurate images on the Galaxy Tab S2.
Packaged within the world’s slimmest and lightest metal frame of its size, the Galaxy Tab S2 is portable enough to easily carry around all day and operate in one hand, offering the best mobility available. Also, the fashionable and stylish design is suitable for any purpose or setting, so users can enjoy the best viewing experience anywhere, anytime.
