On Thursday, South Korean smartphones and electronics giant Samsung launched a 5G variant of its flagship Android tablet in South Korea.
The launch of the Galaxy Tab S6 5G was made public through a Korean-language press release in which Samsung outlined its detailed specifications and features.
The Galaxy Tab S6 5G, will go on sale for KRW 999,900 (roughly Rs. 60,500) in the domestic market, according to Samsung.
The company also asserts that the new tablet is the first of its kind to support 5G networks.
The device is identical to the 4G variant with almost the same technical specifications.
However, e newly launched version uses Qualcomm’s X50 5G modem instead of the X24 LTE modem used on the standard edition.
It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset, which, until recently, was among the most powerful processors available for mobile devices. It has, since then, been superseded by the Snapdragon 855+ and the newer Snapdragon 865 chipsets.
It integrates an octa-core processor cluster consisting of four Kryo 485 high-efficiency Silver cores, three high-performance Kryo 485 Gold cores clocked at 2.42 GHz, and another higher-clocked Kryo 485 Gold core that has a clock speed of 2.84 GHz.
For graphics, the processor integrates the Adreno 640 GPU, which is clocked at 600 Mhz.
While the chipset supports up to 16GB RAM, the Galaxy Tab S6 5G only has 6GB RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.0 storage. Storage can be further increased using microSD cards.
