According to the latest information, there will be four variants of the upcoming high-end tablet: Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi + LTE variants of the Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 and the Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 and all of them will be announced in June, just like the original Galaxy Tab S.

The Galaxy Tab S2 will have premium material (read metal) on the outside, and is expected to feature the latest 64-bit Exynos processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB ROM, microSD card slot, Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels.
Samsung's in-house modem with Cat. 6 LTE (300Mbps), 8-megapixel primary camera, and 2.1-megapixel secondary camera. The 8-inch model has dimensions of 198.2 × 134.5 × 5.4 mm and the 9.7-inch model comes in at 237.1 × 168.8 × 5.4 mm, and both are considerably light at 260 grams and 407 grams respectively.
The resolution on the Galaxy Tab S2 is actually the same as the Nexus 9 and the iPad Air and Air 2. It will be interesting to see if Samsung just drops a press release, like they did for the Galaxy Tab A, or if they'll do a full blown event (likely in New York City) for the Galaxy Tab S2. We'll have to wait and see.
