Samsung unveils new Galaxy Tab S5e

Samsung revealed several details about the new Galaxy Tab S5e

THE Samsung just surprised everyone by announcing their newest tablet! The new Galaxy Tab S5e was made official today as the thinnest Galaxy tablet ever produced.

The front of the Galaxy Tab S5e has a screen Super AMOLED in 10.5 inches of WQXGA resolution (2560 1600) and format 16:10, the same as the Galaxy Tab S4. The sleek body has a battery of 7,040 mAh how good for at 14.5 hours of use with a single charge.

The battery in the S5e is smaller than that of the S4, but, given the difference in thickness between the two (the Tab S4 was 7.1 mm), there is nothing to complain about.

The Galaxy Tab S5e is also similar to the Galaxy Tab S4 and S3 in terms of audio. It receives four speakers tuned for support from the AKG and Dolby Atmos, and the sound output can adapt to the way you are holding the tablet.

The tablet also comes with a fingerprint sensor built into the power button, but it loses a iris sensor. This should not be surprising, since the iris sensor will also not be available on the Galaxy S10.

Inside, Samsung says the tablet has a octa-core processor with two cores clocked 2.2 GHz and six cores clocked 1.7 GHz. The chipset one Snapdragon 670, making the Tab S5e the first to be equipped with this chipset in the Samsung line.

The Galaxy Tab S5e is quite light, weighing 400 grams, at least for the Wi-Fi variant. The accessories of the Tab S5e include a keyboard for a book cover and a charging station. It seems that there is no S Pen this time, which may be the reason why Samsung added the “e” to the tablet's name.

In fact, the term “e” suggests that Samsung may launch a Galaxy Tab S5 and / or a Galaxy Tab S5 + later, similar to the Galaxy S10. pure speculation, but certainly plausible. For now, however, only the Tab S5e, and its release is scheduled for after March.
