Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 To Be Thinner Than The IPad Air 2

Last week we trecent you that Samsung is allegedly busy working on a couple of successors for last year's Galaxy Tab S line of tablets with Super AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) touchscreens. And today we acquire a couple of details about them, revealed through a recent rumor on the matter.

Apparently we should expect the recent Tab S tablets to come in 8" and 9.7" options. Those are different classy screen size measurements compared to their predecessors, which are offered in 8.4" and 10.5" versions. The change has to do with Samsung using 4:3 aspect ratios for the Tab S2's displays, just like Apple always has, and like Google has with its 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 recent aspect ratio - Samsung has already decided to utilize 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 recent tablets will employ metal frames, in order to create them have a premium feel.
