Samsung just released details about its new tablets, the new Galaxy Tab S2 line, which will be available with 8-inch and 9.7-inch screens next month.

The company noted a number of improved features on its Android 5.0 tablet, targeted specifically for readers and media consumers. The new Galaxy Tab’s Super 2048 x 1536 AMOLED display offers automatic fine-tuned adjustments to gamma, sharpness, and saturation along with a “Reading Mode” that adjusts brightness to reduce eye strain. 


Both Galaxy Tab S2 models come with a fingerprint scanner, like the previous models, to better protect the privacy of the device. Other specs include 3GB of RAM and options for 32 and 64GB of internal memory. A microSD stores up to 128GB of memory, and the device boasts a 4,000mAh battery. 

The devices are slated to launch next month, but Samsung didn’t provide a starting price point. The company’s current Galaxy S tablets start at $400, so the new models are unlikely to veer too far from the beaten path.
