Although it’s been rumored for a while now, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 5G is finally official as the world’s first 5G tablet. The tablet has only been announced in South Korea, however, with no word on when it will arrive in other markets.
In terms of hardware specs, there are a few key changes onboard here apart from the name. Samsung is using the Snapdragon X50 5G modem with this tablet in tandem with the Snapdragon 855 SoC that was also running on the 2019 Galaxy Tab S6. The tablet retains the 10.5-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels, as well as quad speakers “Tuned by AKG”.
In the camera department, the tablet comes with dual 13MP + 5MP cameras on the back, while the front has an 8MP camera for selfies and video calls. The Galaxy Tab S6 5G should be sporting a 7,040 mAh battery with 15W fast charging capabilities. Also included with the tablet is Samsung’s S Pen stylus.
Unfortunately, Samsung’s press release doesn’t provide clarity on the Android version this tablet is running. While the original Galaxy Tab S6 was launched with Android 9.0 Pie, it’s likely that this revamped version will come with Android 10 by default.
In South Korea, the tablet will be priced KRW 999,900 which is the equivalent of around $850, making it a decently priced offering given the hardware it’s packing. The Galaxy Tab S6 5G is only said to be available in a solitary 128GB storage variant which includes by 6GB of RAM. The 2019 Galaxy Tab S6 has a microSD card slot for storage expansion, so one can assume that this variant will carry this crucial feature as well.
