Galaxy Tab S2: Samsung’s Most Powerful Tablet Yet

Samsung’s flagship Galaxy Tab S2 tablet opens for U.S. preorders today starting at $400

Samsung has revealed that its Galaxy Tab S2, billed as the company’s “thinnest, lightest, ultra-fast tablet,” is now open for pre-orders online though Samsung.com, Amazon.com, and Best Buy. It will also go on sale through offline retailers and carriers from September 3.

First announced last month, the Galaxy Tab S2 comes in three broad variants, and Samsung has now revealed some of the pricing.

The 9.7-inch Wi-Fi-only model will cost $500, while the 8-inch version will set you back $400. There is also a 4G Wi-Fi version, though Samsung says prices and availability for that incarnation are still to be confirmed by carriers, which suggests this tablet won’t be sold SIM-free.
