Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 5G: the world’s first 5G tablet is now official



Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 5G the world's first 5G tablet is now official

After the usual dripping of rumors and leaks, Samsung presented the new generation of its Galaxy Tab S6 that was previously launched in July 2019.

The S6 was the most advanced tablet line of the South Korean manufacturer. The old Galaxy Tab S6 arrived on the market with the most powerful configuration in the Android tablet segment. Since the previous launch, it had a good processor and RAM to support the use of DeX and its characteristic S-Pen.

Shortly after, there was talk of a possible variant with 5G connectivity that, if realized, became the world’s first tablet compatible with the latest generation networks. Last December, the official website of the corporation in South Korea already gave us some clues that they anticipated the arrival of this device.

Finally, those predictions have been fulfilled. Samsung Korea has officially announced the New Galaxy Tab S6 5G. Furthermore, it will go on sale tomorrow.

A twin with advanced connectivity

This new version of the Tab S6 is exactly the same as the most economical model of the version presented in mid-2019, only that it includes the Qualcomm X50 modem that provides 5G connectivity. The aesthetic, performance characteristics, and of course, the S-Pen, the stylus worn by most models of this Samsung family, are maintained. The model even preserves WiFi and 4G LTE options that we currently have in the market.

The tablet features a 10.5-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. The screen also has an integrated fingerprint reader. To improve its multimedia facet, it also maintains AKG sound technology and quad speakers supported by Dolby Atmos. It is supported by 6 GB of RAM, 128GB internal storage, and a battery of 7040 mAh capacity.

Also, the new Galaxy Tab S6 5G has a design with a matt gray metallic finish and retains a thickness of 5.7 mm and a weight of only 420 grams. Of course, it is accompanied by the improved Smart S Pen that we saw with the 4G model, and that connects to the back of the tablet to load and transport it.

Price and availability of the Galaxy Tab S6 5G

The Galaxy Tab S6 5G of 128 GB with the S Pen included will go on sale on January 30, in Korea for 999,900 South Korean won. This is equivalent to about 800 US Dollars at the current exchange rate.

Finally, Samsung will provide several benefits to customers who purchase before March 31, including various accessories and discounts on other products of the company. At the moment, there are no details about availability in other markets.

Perhaps, we can leave doubts in a few weeks about its global launch, considering that Samsung has prepared its Unpacked event for February 11. This event will present the new Galaxy Z Flip next to the new Galaxy S20 and S20+. Then, at the end of the same month of February, Samsung will join the Mobile World Congress held in Barcelona.
