Meanwhile, AT&T’s pricing will be $0 down and $30 per month for 20 months or $499.99 with a two-year contract. T-Mobile will begin sales on September 3, with the AT&T model launching a day later.
More than one month after Samsung first introduced its new Galaxy Tab S2 tablets, the company has shared launch and pricing info for the new Android slates.
The 9.7-inch Galaxy Tab S2 will set you back $499 for a Wi-Fi model with 32GB of storage, while the 8-inch model will cost $399. Pre-orders for the Galaxy Tab S2 start today, with a full launch scheduled for September 3. Both the 9.7-inch and 8-inch sizes will be available in black, white, and gold color options.
If you’d prefer your Galaxy Tab S2 with a dash of LTE connectivity, you’ll be able to get the black version from AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and US Cellular and a white device from Verizon. Samsung says that the carriers will announce their pricing and launch details individually.
Samsung also notes that it’s working with Amazon and Best Buy to offer a trade-in deal that’ll get you $100 or more off a Galaxy Tab S2 when you trade in your current tablet.
