After so many leaks that were seen online, Samsung has finally unveiled the Samsung Tab 8.20 and 9.7 which is just a year after the release of the Tab S series was made known.

The Tab S2 is a brand new tablet-type from the Samsung brand. It has many changes compared to the actual Tab S range, however, how do they match? Is the S2 better than its predecessor? Read on to find out into details about its major differences.

The Unique Changes to Look Out For

The new Tab S range is smaller, lighter and slimmer generally. This is one of the main hardware changes than their predecessors with 5.6 mm and it claims to be the slimmest ever. The Tab S2 is currently available in both 8.0 inches and 9.7-inch models with the original Tab S coming in 8.4 and 10.5-inch models as well as on screens that are smaller. This means, there has been a weight reduction with the S2 as compared to its predecessors.

Both tablets from the brand come with touch fingerprint based sensors such as the S6 versus swipe based sensors on the actual Tab S. The enhanced fingerprint sensors help to make unlocks using fingerprints more reliable and also compete the Touch ID fingerprint sensor that is found on the iPad.

Color Differences they Come In

The S2 is also accessible in additional standardized black and while shades even as the Samsung Tab S came designed in colors that are daring like white and bronze. The back cover of the Tab S2 is smooth, and this is not the same as the Tab S, which is textured at the back. The back of the S2 is in plastic. It is very rare to witness or see a successor that has a display that is possibly less premium than the device before. However, Samsung was designed to be a strong decision. The display of the device is the best change between these two generations which are the Tab S and S2.

Both tablets are designed with the Super AMOLED display that offers resolution 2048 pixels x 1536 pixels, but although this is might be smaller, they still provide quite fewer pixels than the actual Tab S devices.The main and major change however is that, the brand has decided and chosen to make use of the 4:3 ratios that the Apple iPad brings than the 16:10 normal range that is used by most Android tablets.
