Leaks: Samsung’s New Tablets

Exclusive: Samsung Galaxy Tab S 2 8-inch and 9.7-inch specifications

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 2 size vs. the Apple iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3

Chinese summary of Wall Street Journal article
Original English Wall Street Journal article

And I’ve seen more sample photos. They still look machine-like.
