Samsung has debuted the Galaxy Tab S2 in Malaysia, the latest of its premium tablet series. With a sleek metal frame finish, it is the slimmest and lightest tablet in its class. The new tablet comes in svelte 8-inch and 9.7-inch size options, packing style and performance in a stylish package.

Designed to be a workhorse and entertainment companion on the go, the Galaxy Tab S2 comes fully pre-loaded with Microsoft Office and 100GB of OneDrive cloud storage for two years. Additionally, the 9.7-inch version is compatible with the advanced Book Cover Keyboard (sold separately) that gives you the convenience of a standard PC keyboard, with a built-in trackpad.
