Samsung Electronics took the wrap off the Galaxy Tab S5e on Feb. 15, which the firm says is slimmer, lighter and thoughtfully designed with smart features.
Equipped with a 10.5-inch screen with the big battery capacity, the new gadget is engineered for rich and immersive entertainment experiences, according to the Seoul-based electronics giant.
Samsung plans to market the new Galaxy Tab in the second quarter of this year in such countries as the United States and Germany.
“The Tab S5e is a top-tier tablet with a sleek design and powerful features, available at a new price point,” Samsung’s mobile chief Koh Dong-jin said.
“For users who want intelligence that keeps them connected so they can get more done—as well as a big, beautiful screen for a rich, premium entertainment experience—the Tab S5e delivers.”
Design and features
Samsung argues that the new product is armed with refined design and intelligence built-in.
“With its gorgeous, refreshed design, the Tab S5e embodies practicality and style. With an incredibly thin 5.5mm sleek metal body, and weighing only 400g, the Tab S5e is ultra-portable, durable, and designed to integrate seamlessly into your everyday lifestyle,” a Samsung official said.
“Available in a range of fresh and modern monochromatic colors including Silver, Black, and Gold, you can choose a style that reflects your look. Featuring an extended battery life lasting up to 14.5 hours, the Tab S5e is optimized for long-lasting performance, giving you the freedom to browse, stream and play for longer.”
Samsung says that the new gizmo can act as a hub to control other home devices.
“The Tab S5e offers a smarter and more convenient way to interact with your device, and serves as an ideal hub to control your connected home devices,” the official said.
“Switch on your TV and your lights at the same time with Quick Command, which allows you to customize several actions under one command—making voice control of your home environment even quicker, simpler and more tailored to you.”
