Samsung, it seems, is on the verge of releasing a new 5G capable version of its flagship-grade tablet the Galaxy Tab S6. According to recent reports, the 5G version of this tablet has appeared in official promotional images. If that wasn’t all, an official support page for this 5G version recently went live. While the page itself is blank right now, the reference to the model number SM-T866 indicates that the release of this 5G variant isn’t too far out in the future. As the case always is, we expect the Samsung Galaxy Tab 5G to be first released in South Korea — it’s home market.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 5G: What we know so far
Going by the leaked promotional images of the tablet, it is evident that the Galaxy Tab S6 5G looks identical to the existing, standard LTE version of the device. The promotional material in which the 5G version has a reference is directed at the Korean market. As far as the hardware specs of the Tab S6 5G is concerned, we can expect it to feature the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC powering it. It will also feature the dame 10.5-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels (WQXGA). The tab also comes with 128GB of storage and gets 6GB of RAM. Thanks to a memory card slot, you can expand the storage further using microSD cards. In India, the Tb S6 is sold in a Wi-Fi only and an LTE version. In the new 5G version, we expect Samsung to use Qualcomm’s new X50 5G modem. The 5G version will also feature the same dual-camera setup at the rear consisting of a 13-megapixel primary camera and a 5-megapixel secondary camera. The front-facing camera is the same as well ad uses an 8-megapixel sensor.
The Tab S6 5G will almost certainly never make it to India since we are quite some time away from getting our first 5G network. We can expect to see the product appear first in South Korea, followed by a launch in other markets like the US and Europe in the next few months.
