Hoping to steal away some marketshare from the iPad, Samsung introduces a new range of Galaxy tablets in two sizes that directly compete with the iPad Air and iPad mini. The 9.7-inch and 8.0-inch tablets boast a metal frame construction with an ultra-thin design, even thinner than that of the iPad Air 2. 

The S2 models will feature Super AMOLED displays and a powerful chipset that includes a Octocore application processor consisting of Quad 1.9GHz + Quad 1.3GHz CPUs, which sits alongside 3GB of RAM, 32/64GB of storage, and WiFi or WiFi+LTE connectivity. 

Other features include the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system, 8MP rear and a 2.1MP front camera, microSD storage up to 128GB, and a built-in fingerprint scanner. Both tablets are set for release next month.
