The specifications state the devices will be 5.6mm thick, with the Wi-Fi only 8 inch and 9.7 inch tablets weighing in at 265 grams and 389 grams respectively.

The Galaxy Tab S2 will operate on Android Lollipop version 5.0 with both models giving consumers the option of LTE, either 32GB or 64GB in storage capacity with storage expansion available via a MicroSD slot.

Samsung claims they have recreated "the same viewing experience of browsing through traditional print media" thanks to employing a super AMOLED display. In addition, the Galaxy Tab S2 will support the ability for users to view and run two apps simultaneously.

Region specific launch dates and pricing schedules are yet to be released.

It looks like August will be a busy time for the company, with Samsung set to release its Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge+ mid-month as the company reportedly seeks to get new handsets to market ahead of Apple's new iPhones.

Earlier this year, Samsung released the budget-friendly Galaxy Tab A, in both 8 and 9.7 inch models.
