    Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 and Tab S2 9.7 get certified in Korea

    The Tab S Pro just appeared in a Samsung nomenclature filing, and now, the Galaxy Tab S2 models (yes, plural) have received Korean certification. Two tablets with model numbers SM-T715 and SM-T815 have received certification from the Radio Research Agency (RRA), the Korean agency affiliated with the Korean Communications Commission (KCC) – an agency similar to the FCC.

    The Tab S2 bearing the model number SM-T715 refers to the Galaxy Tab S2 8.0, and the SM-T815 refers to the Galaxy Tab S2 9.7, the 9.7-inch model of the same tablet. Last year’s Tab S models had 8.4-inch and 10.5-inch displays, and Samsung could refine the Tab S to produce models that are a little more compact-friendly this year. Last year’s Galaxy Tab S 8.4 came with the model number SM-T700 (Wi-Fi) and SM-T705 (cellular), and the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 came with the model numbers SM-800 (Wi-Fi) and SM-T805 (cellular).

    Both the Tab S2 8.0 and Tab S2 9.7 are said to be LTE versions of the tablet, but neither has an S/K/L variant letter (but instead, the number “zero” at the end) to indicate carrier variants – which means that these models will be sold to customers directly instead of through carriers (GSM tablets instead of CDMA carrier versions).

    With Samsung getting the Tab S2 models certified in Korea, we have the first major sign that, like the US certification, Samsung’s preparing to launch the Tab S2 8.0 and Tab S2 9.7 soon. You can expect the Tab S2 models to feature Samsung’s homegrown, 64-bit Exynos processor, 3GB of RAM, a 2.1MP front camera, 8MP back camera, and 32GB of local storage with a microSD card slot for expandable storage. Both tablets will feature Samsung’s trademark AMOLED display, a 2048 x 1536 screen resolution, and a 4:3 aspect ratio. While no release date has been given, August is the same month in which Samsung released the Tab S last year.
