Make the Most of Your Downtime with the All New Samsung Galaxy Tab S2

Light, powerful and elegant, Samsung Canada’s most powerful tablet yet gives you control over your digital life

MISSISSAUGA, ON, Aug. 26, 2015 /CNW/ – Samsung Electronics Canada, one of the leading suppliers of innovative mobile devices in the Canadian marketplace, today announced the Canadian availability of the Galaxy Tab S2 – its thinnest, lightest and fastest tablet to date. Leveraging Samsung’s market-leading televisions and large-screen smartphones, the Galaxy Tab S2 is available for preorder starting today and will be available at major Canadian retailers beginning September 16th.

Blending elegant design with outstanding multitasking capabilities, the Galaxy Tab S2 is the new flagship in Samsung’s line of tablets and represents the ultimate device for experiencing and sharing digital content. With a Super AMOLED display optimized for viewing digital content, as well as expandable memory options, the Galaxy Tab S2 packs a vast array of features into a slim, stylish and featherweight design.

“Beautiful to hold and fun to show off, the Galaxy Tab S2 powers up any downtime by delivering performance and style,” says Paul Brannen, Executive Vice President Mobile Solutions, Samsung Electronics Canada. “A true powerhouse, it sets the standard for what consumers should expect from a portable mobile experience.”

Screen Display and Design

An entertainment lover’s dream, the stunning Super AMOLED display showcases all forms of digital content with striking clarity and sharpness. The 4:3 aspect ratio makes printed content fit more naturally on the digital canvas for a more enjoyable reading experience—whether it’s a website, e-book or digital magazine—and advanced screen technology such as Adaptive Display automatically adjusts screen settings to deliver stunning images.

All of this and it is red carpet ready. As part of Samsung Canada’s sponsorship of the Toronto International Film Festival, the Galaxy Tab S2 will be showcasing top festival moments at the Samsung Studio (centrally located in David Pecaut Square) to make it easier for festival goers to stay up to date with the biggest screen moments. In what will no doubt result in a standing ovation, the final film selections from the Samsung Emerging Director Showcase will be screened on the Galaxy Tab S2 at an exclusive launch event, post-festival.

But what is entertainment without drama and power? With a profile of just 5.6mm for both the 9.7-inch and 8.0-inch versions, the Galaxy Tab S2 is Samsung’s thinnest tablet yet – a full 16 percent thinner than its Samsung predecessor. Thanks to its slim design, the Galaxy Tab S2 weighs in at just 9.4 oz.* (8.0-inch) and 13.8 oz.* (9.7-inch), making it ready to go anywhere you want to be entertained. Its 32GB of standard memory—expandable up to an additional spacious 128GB— makes customizing the device easier with your favorite apps, photos and videos.

Efficiency and Processing Power

The compact and elegant Galaxy Tab S2, with an octa-core processor, gives an outstanding performance to make multitasking and staying productive a lot easier. Whether at home, on the road or in the office, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 empowers connected users to manage their lives directly from their tablet.

Since life should be fun and functional, the Galaxy Tab S2 Split Screen View lets users easily split the screen and run two apps simultaneously, while Pop-Up Window allows for quick movement between multiple apps without missing a beat. Equipped and preloaded with Microsoft Office Solutions** this device offers access to 100GB of free storage for two years through Microsoft One Drive; Samsung’s patented fingerprint scanner security sensor; a free three-month premium Next Issue subscription; as well as three months of Google PlayTM Music*** when you purchase a Galaxy Tab S2 and subscribe prior to December 31, 2015.

Seamless Connection

Designed to be the center of consumers’ connected lives, the Galaxy Tab S2 offers SideSync 4.0 for a quick and easy connection to a wide variety of Samsung mobile phones or PCs – instantly turning the tablet into a centralized and intuitive command device with no limitations. Users can open and share calendars, messages, notes, and other files across their connected devices, not to mention brag of recent celebrity encounters by instantly dragging and dropping photos from the Tab S2 to a phone or answering a phone call right from the tablet’s screen. Like a good collaboration, the Galaxy Tab S2 is the first tablet to offer third-party app support so that conversations from various messaging apps can be pushed from a phone to the tablet, even when the devices are in separate rooms.

Not one to be tethered down, the Quick Connect feature cuts the cord clutter by easily searching for and connecting to nearby devices as well as allowing the transfer of files, use as a remote camera view finder or to mirror content from the tablet to the television.
