Galaxy Tab S5e, Tab A 10.1 (2019) land in the US April 26
Samsung has finally put its premium mid-range Galaxy Tab S5e up for pre-order in North America. Both US customers are also being offered SmartThings Hub with pre-orders of the device, which will ship on April 26. Samsung first unveiled the new all-aluminum design back in mid-February, which brings with it an AMOLED display down in the top end of the mid-range market for the first time.
The Galaxy Tab S5e is just 5.5 mm thin and weighs in at a mere 400 grams. Like its higher end stablemate, the Tab S4, it is fitted with a 10.5-inch Super AMOLED display with a 16:10 aspect ratio for a 287ppi density. It is not known whether they are exactly the same panels, but there is a strong chance that this is possible, with the key differentiator in the price point is that it runs a more modest Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 chipset instead of the Snapdragon 835 found in the earlier model.
The new Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019) is fitted with a 1920 x 1200 LCD display and is both thicker and heavier at 7.5 mm and 470 grams. It is powered by an Exynos 7904 octa-core chip. Ideal for a mid-range tablet, it has two high-performance ARM Cortex-A73 cores married to six high-efficiency ARM Cortex-A53 cores. It comes in 2 GB or 3 GB variants with either 32 GB, 64 GB or 128 GB of storage.
The Galaxy Tab S5e retails from US$399 while the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019) retails from US$229.
