The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 will be released first in its home country. The new flagship tablet will be made available to the South Korean market starting on August 11.
According to Sammy Hub, both size variants of the new Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 will be available in South Korea starting from the aforementioned date.

While the price tag may seem a little high, Samsung had promised that the price will be worth it, as they call the Galaxy Tab S2 “the most immersive” Samsung tablet thus far.
“Building on the great success of the Galaxy Tab S, the new Galaxy Tab S2 is the slimmest and lightest tablet on the market,” said Conor Pierce, Vice President, IT & Mobile Division, Samsung Electronics UK and Ireland, “and also continues to offer the Super AMOLED display in a more versatile 4:3 format. Giving people seamless access to a wealth of enhanced productivity features.
