The highly-anticipated Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is now official, and it's expected to go head to head with the popular iPad Air 2.

The new Galaxy Tab S2 (pictured above) will become globally available starting in August, launching as the company's "most immersive tablet to-date, " according to Samsung. The high-end tablet comes in two models - one with an 8.0-inch display and the other with a larger 9.7-inch screen, sharing virtually the same specifications aside from battery size.

Apple's iPad Air 2 is widely considered the biggest competitor to the newly-announced Galaxy Tab S2, so let's see how the two tablets stack up against each other in terms of specifications.


The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 features a Super AMOLED display with a QXGA resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels for both its 8.0- and 9.7-inch models. Samsung also boasts a "reading-optimized ratio" that allows users to enjoy a "seamless reading experience without unnecessary scrolling."

The iPad Air 2, meanwhile, sports a 9.7-inch LED-backlit multi-touch IPS Retina display with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels, i.e. the same resolution the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 has to offer.

Processor, RAM

Under the hood, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 packs an octa-core application processor consisting of Quad 1.9GHz + Quad 1.3GHz, paired with a hefty 3GB of RAM for a fast and responsive performance.

The iPad Air 2 packs an Apple A8x processor with 64-bit architecture, paired with an M8 motion coprocessor and 2GB of RAM.


When it comes to storage, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 will be available in 32GB or 64GB configurations, with additional memory of up to 128GB via microSD.

Apple offers its iPad Air 2 with 16GB, 64GB or 128GB of internal storage capacity, with no microSD support for expandable memory.
