Samsung has already made it into the 5G space by launching its 5G supporting smartphones like the Galaxy S10 5G, Note 10 5G, and the Samsung W20 5G. However, we haven’t seen a 5G capable tablet in the market yet. Samsung is here to fill that gap with the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 5G. It is the 5G variant of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 which was released earlier this year.
Where did the news surface?
The news about the leaks comes from two wireless certification bodies, the Wi-Fi Alliance and the Bluetooth SIG (Special Interest Group). All Wi-Fi and Bluetooth compatible devices have to go through tests by these organizations before they get released in the market. They check if the wireless connectivity features in the devices are compliant with the rules set by the Wi-Fi Alliance and the Bluetooth SIG or not.
We found out from the listings on these organizations that the model numbers of the Galaxy Tab S6 and the Galaxy Tab S6 5G devices are SM-T865N and the SM-T866N respectively according to the Wi-Fi Alliance and the Bluetooth SIG certifications. The 5G device has been approved by both the bodies and we may see their release soon. This is all we know about the upcoming tablet from Samsung.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Features
The new 5G tablet will come as a 5G variant to the existing Samsung Galaxy Tab S6. It is an excellent Android tablet that is capable of replacing a laptop altogether. The Galaxy Tab S6 features a top-of-the-line Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor. The upcoming Galaxy Tab S6 5G is expected to have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ chipset. The memory of the Galaxy Tab S6 is 8 GB in the top variant. It comes with up to 256 GB of storage space as well as a 10.5-inch massive Super AMOLED display. The memory is expandable through a microSD card.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 was the first tablet ever to have an HDR10+ certified display. It means that the display has dynamic tone mapping for each frame of a scene in order to fine-tune the content displayed on the screen. This is better than the static HDR10 displays as it has richer colors and better details. The 5G variant will most likely have the same HDR10+ display as the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6.
