Samsung’s second generation Galaxy Tab S2 tablets will launch in Australia next week, with 8.0- and 9.7-inch models going on-sale at retailers across Australia on the 15th of September in both Wi-Fi and 4G configurations.

The tablets offer an updated design over the original model with a thinner form factor (nearly a full mm thinner than the original at just 5.6mm thin). They also move to a 4:3 aspect ratio for the screen.
