Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 capturing camera samples

Like its predecessor, Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 packs an 8MP main camera. This time around, the snapper has no Light Emitting Diode (LED) flash - the manufacturer has bet that you will capture the majority of your photos with your smartphone and rightfully so.

While 8MP might not sound much, the Tab S2 capturing camera is really capable as a video recorder - the capturing camera on the tablet can record up to UHD video (2160p).

We snapped a few photos with the slate for you to hold a see at. We will pass our final judgment on the capturing camera in our full review of the device.

The front capturing camera on the Tab S2 is only 2.1MP.

First impressions

Samsung has worked obsessively to create the Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 the thinnest and lightest slate in its class and has succeeded. We expect the device’s dimensions to be its defining feature and for a fine reason - the Tab S2 9.7 breaks the rules about how a full size tablet should handle.

The chipset found in the device raised a few eyebrows, as it isn’t the most powerful solution available at the moment. It is however, a massive improvement over the SoC found in the tablet’s predecessor.

To sum things up for now, Samsung Galaxy Tab S2, like its direct rival from Apple, is made to complement your smartphone, which is preferably from the same brand. We will learn more about the slate while we’re preparing our full review, so stay tuned!
