Samsung Launches iPad -Like Tablets
Samsung's Galaxy Tab S2 looks like it has gotten most, if not all, of its specs from the competition's iPad Mini. The tablet has been officially launched on July 20, Monday. The initial look at Samsung's new device shows that the company is going after Apple's share on the tablet market. The new pair of tablets are almost indistinguishable from iPads, at least on the outside.
According to NBC News, the new device has a 4:3 aspect ratio, which the iPad also has. Its home button is on the short side. Its resolution is 2048 x 1536, exactly like the Apple tablet. The bigger one is 9.7 inches long, and the smaller one,8.0 in, very close to iPad's 9.7 in, and iPad Mini's 7.9 in dimensions. The Galaxy Tab S2 also features a built-in fingerprint scanner.
The new tablet model is marketed as Samsung's thinnest ever. It is also lighter than the iPad, and has a smaller battery. Techradar said the device is only 5.6 mm thick, as opposed to iPad's 6.1 mm thickness. The 9.7 weighs 389 grams, while the 8 is 265 grams heavy. The battery capacity has been cut down for the Galaxy Tab S2's more compact size. The 9.7 has a battery capacity of 5870 mAh, while the 8 has 4000 mAh.
The storage capacity has been upped for both devices. A capacity of 32 GB and 64 GB are available for both devices, which can be expanded up to 128 GB with the use of an SD Card.
Apple reportedly has the largest share in the tablet market. The iPad is the second-largest selling Apple device, claiming a 90% satisfaction rate, according to recent studies.
Samsung has focused its marketing on the upcoming Galaxy Note 5 phablet, which is due to be released next month after several speculations regarding its launch date. The Note series is also a best-selling Samsung flagship device.
The Galaxy Tab S2 is expected to be available in retailers next month.
