Last week, TENAA, China’s version of the FCC in the US, approved the unannounced Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 (SM-T815) and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 (SM-T715) for use in China. The two will be the follow-ups of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 respectively. They are said to be the slimmest tablets to enter the tablet market at only 5.4 mm. Now the Tab S2 8.0 has been certified by the US FCC.
The diagram seen above was published by the US FCC. Meanwhile, more photos of the device have been leaked by French-speaking NWE (see below).
According to past reports, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 will sport an 8-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1536 x 2048 pixels (pixel density of 320 ppi), an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera, 32 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot (as much as 128 GB), Samsung’s Exynos 7420 64-bit octa-core processor with four cores clocked at 2.1 GHz, four cores clocked at 1.5 GHz, and a Mali-T760 MP8 GPU, and 3 GB of RAM. It runs Android 5.0 (Lollipop) out of the box.
It is yet to be determined when Samsung plans to lift the lid on its new high-end tablet, nor do we know how much the slates will set you back. However, since the Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 has been approved by both the FCC and TENAA, we’re guessing the tablets will make their official debut soon.
