Kalos 2 Super Tablet. Kalos Who?

Kalos 2 could be the fastest tablet ever as it sports an Exynos 7420

  • Samsung Exynos 7420 CPU
  • Unknown RAM
  • Unknown screen size at 2560 x 1600 pixels
  • 18 hours(!) of battery life
  • Type-C USB 3.1 port
  • 6.3mm thin

I haven’t heard of Kalos before now. Has anyone?

And if Kalos can do this, how long before it’s also from Teclast, Onda, CUBE, etc, but as an iPad Air clone?

First Review: Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 (9.7-inch) Review

The Galaxy Tab S2 is so thin and light that it almost seems like someone digitized a piece of paper. This is one gorgeous display, too. The Super AMOLED screen delivers richer colors and deeper blacks than the iPad Air 2. The tablet is especially compelling if you own both a Samsung phone and a Samsung TV, because of how well this tablet’s software integrates with those devices. But even if you don’t live in Samsung world, you’ll appreciate this slate’s multitasking performance when using features like multiwindow.

What keeps the Tab S2 from being an Editors’ Choice pick is its below-average battery life.

Of course, 7.5 hours isn’t bad, but other tablets with the same size display last 9 hours or longer on a charge.

No AnTuTu score, but other benchmarks were done.

It’s supposed to be in stores (read: Best Buy) this Thursday, September 3rd. I doubt I’ll be rushing to a store to get disappointed by their absence. I’ll wait.

Samsung got their new phones in Best Buy the day of their announcement. I don’t think they care that much about tablets.

Xiaomi President Defends Redmi Note 2 Screen

Apparently some sort of whispering campaign on Weibo began last week in regards to the screen used in the new Redmi Note 2.

Xiaomi co-founder and President Lin Bin publicly addresses the issue, offering a rare peek behind the tech scenes in a Weibo

He should use his Magic Frying Pan to flatten the detractors. (That’s a very inside joke only those who have been following Xiaomi closely will be amused by.)
