    Samsung's Galaxy Tab S series contained some of the more attractive Android tablets released to date, so it's good to see Samsung is working on a sequel, at least according to the latest rounds of rumors.

    Press images of one tablet expected to be part of the Galaxy Tab S2 series have leaked thanks to OnLeaks, revealing a slim, attractive device with metal around the edges. This use of metal is reminiscent of Samsung's latest phones such as the Galaxy A5 and Galaxy S6, as well as the recently-released Galaxy Tab A line.

    According to a variety of leaks, the Galaxy Tab S2 will come in 8-inch and 9.7-inch variants. Like with most of Samsung's products, the Galaxy Tab S2 will feature a Super AMOLED display, although interestingly the company will move away from a screen with a 16:9 aspect ratio, opting for a 4:3 2048 x 1536 display in both models, just like the iPad Air 2 and Nexus 9.

    Processor-wise we can expect to see a 64-bit Exynos SoC, most likely Samsung's Exynos 7420 we saw in the Galaxy S6, alongside 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage and a microSD card slot. The Galaxy Tab S2 is rumored to also include an 8-megapixel camera on the back, a 2.1-megapixel camera on the front, and LTE connectivity in some models.

    Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy Tab S2 sometime in June with Android 5.0 and TouchWiz on board. As this is Samsung's premium tablet offering, it should be priced accordingly.

    This isn't an improvement on the current Tab (Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5) - which has a 2560*1600 resolution, 3GB RAM, 13/32GB Storage, updateable to Lollipop, 8MP Camera - the only discernable upgrade is the processor which off the top of my head I think is an Exynos 5 Octa 5420/ Snapdragon 800 @ 2.3GHz.
    This has got to be a completely worthless update.

    Nice tablet but I don't see myself upgrading from my Galaxy Note 8. Metal skin may feel and looks nice but it won't do much different than what I have now. Processors might be faster but my ol' brain stay the same! LOL
