The two tech giants, Apple and Samsung have squabbled on various occasions over stolen designs and other such issues.
The most notable quarrel was over the Galaxy S2 which Apple claimed looked like one of its products.
The reconciliation was done over a heap of money which Samsung ended up paying Apple. But it seems like the multi million dollar loss has had no effect over Samsung.
It has gone rogue yet again and has copied the design of the iPad Air for its product, Samsung Galaxy Tab S2. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 may be released around June this year, but no announcements of any events to be held have been made yet.
The device is somewhat similar to the Galaxy S6 in its design concepts as well.
The tab is made of full metal and the thickness is merely 5.4mm, which is less than the 6.1mm thick iPad Air 2. A resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels seems to be in place which is better than its predecessor that had a 2560 x 1600 pixels resolution.
Also, the device may have two variants – one with an 8 inch screen and the other with a 9.7 inch screen. In short, we can say that this device is the Samsung Galaxy S6 in a tablet form.
Hardware wise, the company is not going to make any compromise and is geared towards beating Apple’s iPad. There are chances of the device making use of the Exynos 7420 chipset in the Tab S2, or another 64-bit equivalent chipset.
The tab is expected to have a 3GB RAM and a 32GB internal memory.
The device will be equipped with an external memory card slot too, but with the slimness, it would be a big challenge. An 8MP rear camera and a 2MP front camera are expected to take care of the photographic requirements of the user.
Post a June announcement, the market release may be done some time in July this year.
