Infra-red inclusion to attract rapid rise of second-screen users.
The dual-core powered Galaxy Tab 2 follows the original launch of the Samsung Galaxy Tab two years ago.
The device will come in seven and 10.1-inch options in order to dent the sales of respective best-sellers the Kindle Fire and iPad.
Additionally, both Tabs will include infra-red so they can be used as universal remotes, which appears to be a nod to the current second-screen trend among mobile device owners.
Tim Baxter, president, Samsung Electronics America, said: "These new Galaxy Tab 2 and Galaxy Player devices deliver what consumers have come to expect from all Samsung products - exceptional design, impressive connectivity options and a selection of choices for each type of person and user scenario," said "A one size fits all solution is just not sufficient."
The Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 has a RRP of $249.99, while the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 will be priced at $399.99 with respective release dates of April 22nd and May 4th.
