Confirmed Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 will be launching in Australia later this year

samsung-galexy-tab-s2
After much build up and leaks, Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S2 tablets were formally announced yesterday in 8″ and 9.7″ form factors. The tablets will be available in ‘global markets, starting from August, 2015’ so we reached out to Samsung Australia to confirm if Australia is a part of their global launch plans, and today they have confirmed we will be seeing the tablets here.]

While they were unable to confirm pricing, nor a local release date for the tablets, Samsung Australia did advise :

Samsung Electronics Australia is excited to confirm that the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 will be made available in Australia later this year. We will provide pricing and availability details for our latest flagship tablet range closer to the local launch.

Last year’s Galaxy Tab S tablets were quite the standouts on the local scene, with few tablets matching the lovely high-resolution screen, specifications and 6.6mm thin profile. This years 5.6mm thin profile is sure to draw some looks when the tablets reach stores. If you’re inclined to check out the full specs for the tablets, you can find detailed specs below:

We look forward to checking out the Galaxy Tab S2 range when they launch here in Australia and we’ll be sure to let you know when Samsung has more information to share – or we hear anything on the grapevine ;).

Are you excited for the Galaxy Tab S2 tablets?

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Anyone else completely confused by Samsung’s tablet naming/numbering system? I’m at the point where I’ve given up trying to keep track of them all.
