Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 release date, specs, rumors: tablet inspired by Galaxy S6 Edge in new concept image

Samsung is reportedly preparing to release Galaxy Tab S2 in June this year to take on other upcoming tablets, such as Microsoft Surface Pro 4 and iPad Air 3. The Galaxy Tab S2 will be the thinnest tablet to be ever produced by Samsung and sport a "premium" feel, with its design being reportedly inspired by the Galaxy S6. There has been no official announcement by Samsung regarding the Galaxy Tab S2, but designer Saber Mahmodi has envisioned a beautiful concept of the upcoming tablet, based on the design of the Galaxy S6 Edge.

Mahmodi's renders of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 show the tablet in a golden version with rounded edges. The tablet sports a big home button, which could house a fingerprint scanner, along with a pulse sensor located in the back of the device. A closer look at Mahmodi's renders shows the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 with very narrow screen bezels, making the tablet's screen appear curved, similar to the Galaxy S6 Edge. There are no technical specifications accompanying the renders, but earlier reports suggest that the Galaxy Tab S2 will feature a Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 offering an aspect ratio of 4:3. The device will be reportedly powered by Samsung's flagship 64-bit Exynos chipset, paired with 3GB of RAM. The Galaxy Tab S2 will offer 32GB of built-in storage, along with a microSD slot for additional storage, and pack a 3850mAh battery. The tablet is expected to come with an 8 megapixel main camera and a 2.1 megapixel selfie shooter, and will run Android 5.0.2 Lollipop OS straight out of the box.

Samsung had released the original Samsung Galaxy Tab S models in June 2014 and could follow the same trend this summer. However, there are conflicting reports that the South Korean tech giant could unveil the Galaxy Tab S2 in Q2 or Q3 of this year. The Galaxy Tab S2 will reportedly debut in US, Canada, some EU markets, China, Latin America, Hong Kong, Korea, and India.
