Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 released to carriers

This week Samsung revealed the carrier version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2, a tablet made to match the Galaxy S6 smartphone series. This device will be released to T-Mobile first, arriving on September 3rd on store shelves across the United States. This release is part of what T-Mobile is branding "the summer of Samsung", including the Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, Samsung Galaxy Note 5, and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ too!

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is a follow-up to the original Samsung Galaxy Tab S, a device made to compete directly with Apple's iPad. The Galaxy Tab S2 will come to T-Mobile for $0 down and $27.09 for 23 months and $26.92 for the 24th month ($649.99 total). T-Mobile's version of this device will come with 4G LTE connectivity and a data plan that allows users to "match up to 5GB" of their smartphone's data plan for $10 USD.

This device will be coming to AT&T, US Cellular, and Verizon as well. Samsung suggests this device will be coming to "select" US retailers and carriers on September 3rd – we'll guess that a few more not yet named are coming down the line.

Two different versions of the tablet are coming, one with a 9.7-inch display, the other with an 8-inch display. Both models come with 32GB of internal storage. Off-contract pricing for the 9.7-inch display model will cost $499.99 USD, while the 8-inch version will cost $399.99 USD off-contract.

Most carriers will have just the black version (in both sizes), while the Gold version will be available in a Wi-fi-only edition and Verizon will have a white version. All will be popping up inside of September.
