Two new Samsung tablets are making their way to the U.S. later this month.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e (shown above) and Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (shown below) will both launch in the U.S. on April 26th. The Galaxy Tab S5e will start at $399.99, while the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 will be priced at $229.99. Both tablets will be available from Samsung.com and major retailers.
Samsung also notes that customers who pre-order the Galaxy Tab S5e from Samsung.com between April 12th and April 25th will be eligible to receive a free Samsung SmartThings Hub.
The Galaxy Tab S5e is a well-specced tablet with a 10.5-inch 2560x1600 Super AMOLED display, 4/6GB of RAM, 64/128GB of storage, and a microSD card slot for adding up to 512GB of additional storage. It's got 13MP rear and 8MP cameras for snapping quick photos or video chatting, a USB-C port for charging, and a 7040mAh battery with fast charge support. Samsung has included POGO pins, too, so that you can add accessories like a physical keyboard or charging dock.
Rounding things out is a quad speaker setup, octa-core Snapdragon 670 processor, Android 9.0 Pie, and a fingerprint reader mounted on the side of the body. All of those features are crammed into a metal body that measures 5.5mm thick. One thing to keep in mind is that there's no 3.5mm headphone jack here, but Samsung does include a USB-C headphone connector in the box.
Then there's the Galaxy Tab A 10.1. This is a more affordable tablet with a 10.1-inch 1920x1200 LCD screen, octa-core Lassen O+ processor, 2/3GB of RAM, and 32/64/128GB of storage with a microSD card slot. There are 8MP rear and 5MP front cameras, Android 9.0 Pie, and a 6150mAh battery.
Samsung has included dual speakers and a 3.5mm headphone jack on the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 for your entertainment needs, and Samsung Kids is also included to get you a curated collection of educational content for kids.
We don't see many new Android tablets come to market nowadays, so it's nice to see Samsung bringing two options — one higher-end and one more affordable — to the U.S.
