Electronic giant Samsung has released the world’s thinnest and lightest tablet, the Galaxy Tab S2.

The newest addition to the brand’s flagship series is made in the thinnest and lightest metal frame of its size. It is 5.6mm thin and weighs as little as 265g.

“We have developed the most advanced personal visual device that will undoubtedly set the new standard in immersive viewing and ultimate mobility,” said head of IT and Mobile Team, Hayssam Yassine.

“Backed by an integrated office experience, the Galaxy Tab S2 will be a constant companion for a range of users who value high-quality finishing and cutting-edge innovation,” he added.

According to the brand, the device comes with a Super AMOLED display, a feature that allows a screen-viewing experience similar to traditional print media. The display delivers 94 percent of “natural tones to show true-to-life colours” using Adobe RGB colour standard.

In addition, the tablet comes with embedded Microsoft Office Solutions, 100GB cloud storage, and Fingerprint Scanner authentication.

The Tab will come in two size options, 9.7-inch and 8.0-inch, with 32 GB and MicroSD up to 128GB.

Both version are available in the UAE at prices ranging from AED1,599 ($435) to AED2,199.

Samsung Electronics Co, Ltd. currently employs 319,000 people in 84 countries and has an annual sales estimate of $196 billion.
