Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 Nook was released in partnership of the South Korean-based company and Barnes & Noble, the largest retail bookseller in the U.S. The co-branded tablet was launched on Thursday.
The specs are reportedly pretty much the same with Samsung Galaxy Tab S2, which was launched on the same day as the Nook version. The difference is that this version of Galaxy Tab S2 has been loaded with enormous digital data from the Nook store, according to PC Mag.
Users of Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 Nook will have access to more than four million books, categorized in bestsellers, new releases, enhanced titles with special contents, and classics. There are also other choices, such as comic books, travel guides, graphic novels, cookbooks and children's books, which are more than 110,000 by the way.
Samsung's new tablet flagship comes into variants, the 8-inch display and 9.7-inch display. Apparently the Nook version doesn't have the larger Galaxy Tab S2 and is only Wi-Fi, not LTE, capable.
The new device features a 2048x1536 QXGA Super AMOLED display. Its specs include 32GB built-in memory that can be expandable up to 128GB with a microSD card, battery usage that can last up to 14 hours with continuous video play, and a Quad 1.9GHz + Quad 1.3GHz, Octacore application processor.
The company boasts the weight and thinness of its latest flagship tablet, which is at 265 grams and 0.22 inches, respectively. It is also loaded with Microsoft Office applications.
The price for the 8-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 non-Nook version is at $399, according to The Verge. The Nook version may cost a little higher at $399.99, with additional features like free use of Wi-Fi at Barnes & Noble stores, free reading of Nook Books in Barnes & Noble and more.
