The Galaxy Tab S2 is coming... and this is what it might look like

Aiming for the iPad again

If you've been eagerly awaiting news of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 then a couple of today's tidbits will be of interest to you. First we have an image from the usually reliable @OnLeaks that shows the S2 is going to look a lot like the recently outed Galaxy Tab A.

There's what looks to be a metal frame around the edges as well as a physical home button that could presumably double as a fingerprint sensor. A front-facing camera and ambient light sensor can also be spotted.

The picture suggests we can expect a 4:3 screen ratio, which is in line with previous rumors we've heard. If the insider whispers are to be believed, then the tablet will be fitted with a Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels.

Only a matter of time

The second bit of news today is the mention of the Galaxy Tab S2 in one of Samsung's own apps, Hancom Office Show 2014. As SamMobile has spotted, the update notes now list the new slate as a compatible device.

It's the first official confirmation that Samsung is actually working on the next-generation Galaxy Tab S2, though at this stage it would have been a huge surprise if that wasn't the case.

We think that Samsung will launch the device next month in an attempt to steal some more market share away from Apple. Rumours suggest it will come with a 64-bit Exynos processor, 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage.
