Samsung has announced the new Galaxy Tab S2 tablet. Galaxy Tab S2 is “thinnest and lightest tablet of its size ever” by Samsung. It is, indeed, just 5.6mm thin. Both 8-inch and 9.7-inch models are equally thin.
The company has made the Tab more square this time. Now, instead of 16:10 ratio, it has a 5:4 ratio body. Samsung has made the tablet that way because it will be more convenient to browse web pages and read e-books on a square tablet. The square tablet will “recreate the viewing experience of browsing through traditional print media,”.
The tab has now a reading mode which “modifies the screen’s brightness level to help users read content for longer periods of time.”
The tablet also presents deeper contrast and more precise detail to provide a best-in-class reading experience with the Super AMOLED display delivering 94% of natural tones to show true-to-life colors (Adobe RGB color standard). Users can now enjoy galleries of vividly detailed photos and effortlessly shop online while viewing the most accurate images on the Galaxy Tab S2.
