Samsung Introduces the Galaxy Tab S5e Days Before the Galaxy S10 Series Launch

In the next few days, the wold will finally see and know more about the much leaked and talked about upcoming Galaxy S10 series. But before that officially happens, the South Korean electronics giant just officially introduced the new Galaxy Tab S5e tablet on their YouTube channel. Watch it below and see it in action.

This new Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e sports a 10.4-inch Super AMOLED screen with 2560 x 1600 resolution with noticeably thin bezels and incredibly razor-thin metal-clad profile coming in at just 5.5mm. It weights only about 400 grams according to Samsung. One of the thinnest and lightest Android tablet around.

Powering this tablet is a Snapdragon 670 processor and will come in two memory and storage configurations. There will be a 4GB / 6GB RAM and either 64GB or 128GB storage sizes. It of course supports microSD card of up to 512GB size. Also a first on a Samsung tablet offering that comes with this is an Android 9 Pie with One UI platform running the whole show.

Like what we have seen with the Galaxy Tab S4, the Galaxy Tab S5e will also support Dex Mode which is a unique feature that provides users a laptop/desktop-like experience. That said, you can still use an attachable book cover keyboard. However, it does not have S-Pen support. But there's Bixby 2.0 in it.

As for its audio and camera side of things. The slate is equipped with four AKG tuned speakers situated around the device's four side. On the back is a 13MP camera and an 8MP shooter on the front side. There's also the face recognition and fingerprint scanner in the device. And a 7040mAh battery pack right inside it that promises to last up to 14 hours on video playback.

As of writing, we don't know if or when this will arrive in the Philippines. But in the US, preorders will begin in March with a price tag starting at $399 (Php21,000).
