Samsung releases world’s thinnest and lightest tablet
The S2 tablet is the newest addition to the brand's series is 5.6mm thin and weighs as little as 265g
Electronic giant Samsung has released the world’s thinnest and lightest tablet, the Galaxy Tab S2.
The newest addition to the brand’s flagship series is considered the thinnest and lightest metal frame of its size. It is 5.6mm thin and weighs as little as 265g.
“The Galaxy Tab S2 is not only our thinnest and lightest tablet of its size ever, it also gives users quick, easy access to a wealth of superior viewing and productivity features,” said JK Shin, CEO and President of IT & Mobile Division at Samsung Electronics.
“We believe the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is the most complete personal visual device designed for consumers to carry and use anywhere,” he added.
According to the brand, the device comes with a Super AMOLED display, a feature that allows a screen-viewing experience similar to traditional print media.
The display delivers 94 percent of “natural tones to show true-to-life colours” using Adobe RGB colour standard.
The S2 comes in two sizes — either a 9.7-inch or 8.0-inch screen — which are slightly different to its predecessor, the Tab S.
Like Apple’s iPad tablet, both of the S2 screens have a 4:3 screen ratio. It is the same shape as the iPad’s screen, but is facing criticism because it would mean that widescreen TV and films will inevitably have to be shown with black bars at the top and bottom.
