Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e renders surface online
Back in August 2018, Samsung launched the Galaxy Tab S4 premium tablet. Loaded with Android 8.1 Oreo-based firmware (with Samsung Experience UI) and powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, this slate also sports 4 GB of memory and 64 GB of internal storage space. Its list of specs and features also includes a Super AMOLED 288 ppi display and an iris scanner, as well as a 7,300 mAh battery with support for fast charging. Now, a successor is already in the works and it even looks like this successor could arrive before the first anniversary of the Galaxy Tab S4.
The render that Evan Blass has recently posted on Twitter does not reveal much in terms of features, but a few key elements can be easily noticed: the tablet is quite slim, it has a POGO pin connector, AKG-tuned sound, and since there are new One UI icons on the desktop, it is rather safe to assume that this slate will come with Android Pie-based software onboard. However, the most important element that can be noticed in the image is the date on the display - April 5, which could be the launch date of the Galaxy Tab S5e.
In addition to all the above, we can guess at least some of the specs by taking a look at the Galaxy Tab S4. Since the Galaxy Tab 5e should be an upgrade, it will probably have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 under the hood, maybe 6 GB or 8 GB of memory and 128 GB of storage space as well. The interesting part is that Samsung might also launch a "non-e" Galaxy Tab S5 and there was no rumor to involve it so far.
Are tablets still a thing for you? What would Samsung need to add to the Galaxy Tab S5/S5e to make them worthy of your attention?
