Units are available in 8" and 9.7" models and Samsung claims the devices are rugged enough to meet the demanding retail environment without the need for a bulky and heavy protective case.
Built off of the highly-successful Tab S, the second-generation tablet sports a 1.9 Ghz processor and Samsung's Amoled screen that allows for super high definition graphics and images.
While Samsung's hardware is certainly impressive and on-par with the leaders in the mobile space, where the Tab S2 makes its bones is with its partnerships with retail software providers.
One such partnership with Raymark allows retailers access to the vendor's clienteling application. The available software gives associates access to full shopper profiles, including purchase and browsing history, customer wish lists, favorite styles and more.
To help bolster the mobile application's functionality and speed of use, Samsung is developing alternative data input methods such as speak to text for the Tab S2, which would allow associates to update shopper info with just their voice.
Other features underdevelopment for the newly-released tablet is Samsung Pay acceptance, which will allow shoppers to pay from their personal device in a quick and safe manner. On the topic of safety the tablet has fingerprint scanner technology for associate verification and comes equipped with Samsung's Knox security that provides hardware, software and application layers of security to provide businesses with multiple levels of protection.
