Price and availability: Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e
Samsung Australia says, “Ahead of its global UNPACKED media event in San Francisco on 209 February, Samsung Electronics has pre-viewed the Galaxy Tab S5e. We can confirm that the new tablet will be available here, with local pricing and availability to be confirmed closer to local launch.
We are told that is Q2, 2109.
Initial information from Samsung is here.
Yes, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S5 is an evolution that won’t force Tab S3 or S4 buyers to upgrade. But if you want the best Android tablet, this is it. The new 2K screen and 7040mAH battery alone are amazing enough. And it will have all the Android 9 smarts, fingerprint reader, and more.
