Two models will be available, including a 9.7-inch model and an 8-inch model. You’ll find octa-core processors in both, Android 5.0 Lollipop, 8-megapixel cameras, 2.1-megapixel front-facing cameras, 3GB of RAM and microSD card support for up to 128GB.

The Wi-Fi only 9.7-inch Galaxy Tab S2 with 32GB of storage will start at $499.99, while the 8-inch model will set you back $399.99. If you want LTE bundled, you’ll find the 9.7-inch model with 32GB of storage soon from AT&T, Sprint, US Cellular and T-Mobile. Pricing will vary by carrier.
