With just a few days to go until the much-hyped Galaxy S10 event, Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy Tab S5e – a “slimmer, lighter and thoughtfully designed” tablet with “smart features to keep you connected”.
“The Tab S5e is a top-tier tablet with a sleek design and powerful features, available at a new price point,” said DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division, Samsung Electronics. “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.”
The S5e follows the latest mobile trend and has removed the home button and slimmed down its bezels. It packs a 10.5-inch display into an incredibly thin 5.5mm sleek metal body and weighs only 400g. Featuring an extended battery life lasting up to 14.5 hours, the Tab S5e is optimised for long-lasting performance.
The Tab S5e is the first Samsung tablet to feature the new Bixby 2.0 and can serve as an ideal hub to control your connected home devices. Switch on your TV and your lights at the same time with Quick Command, which allows you to customise several actions under one command—making voice control of your home environment even quicker, simpler and more tailored to you.
When you need to get things done, a keyboard (sold separately) coupled with Samsung DeX gives you a PC-like environment. With call and message continuity, you can also answer a call or reply to a message directly from your tablet – even when your phone is far from reach, or on a different Wi-Fi network.
The S5e comes with Samsung’s impressive Super AMOLED display, complete with a 16:10 screen ratio, no visible home key and an 81.8% screen-to-body ratio for an enhanced, immersive viewing experience.
New Quad Speakers are built in, which incorporate auto rotate stereo technology for powerful, louder audio that adapts to how you’re holding the tablet (portrait/landscape). The Tab S5e also features Dolby Atmos integration and sound by AKG, for immersive 3D sound and professional balanced audio. With Spotify preloaded and a free premium subscription for up to 3 months for new members, the Tab S5e allows you to stream your favourite tunes uninterrupted, anywhere.
