Samsung Quietly Updates S2 Tablets To Snapdragon 652 CPU

This news is two days old. Other things had my time. I still wanted to note it here.

Samsung just released an updated Galaxy Tab S2 with improved performance

Refreshed variants of the Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 and Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 are already on sale in Germany through with a starting price of €449. The Galaxy Tab S2 now comes with a 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 652 processor, which offers better CPU performance than the original Galaxy Tab S2 with an Exynos 5433 chipset. There is, however, a slight decrease in GPU performance.

The updated version also comes with Android 6.0.1 out of the box. The external design and other specifications remain the same. It still comes with a Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels, an 8-megapixel primary camera with support for QHD video recording, a 2.1-megapixel secondary camera, 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, a microSD card slot, dual-band gigabit Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v4.1, and a fingerprint sensor.

This is maddening. The only way to discover when these arrive at Best Buy — if the store’s website listing doesn’t stick a New badge on the item — is to go to About Tablet and see if Android 6.x is inside.

Further maddening: No price cut!
