Samsung outs the Galaxy Tab S5E, their thinnest and lightest tablet

Just a few days before the Unpacked event, Samsung announced the Galaxy Tab S5E, a midrange Android tablet with a 10.5-inch display. Android tablets are not as recommendable as any of the iPad models, but Samsung might have a potential contender here.

The Galaxy Tab S5E is the first tablet in the Galaxy Tab S5 series to come out. It’s Samsung’s thinnest and lightest tablet to date at just 5.5mm and 400g. Don’t mistake the tablet to have a cheap body, because it has a metal construction.

With the “E” in its name, the tablet is not a flagship device. It’s powered by a Snapdragon 670 processor with up to 6GB of memory and 128GB of expandable storage.

Good thing Samsung still blessed the slate with a Super AMOLED display with a 2560 x 1600 resolution and 16:10 aspect ratio. Keep in mind that it doesn’t come bundled with an S Pen and it doesn’t have stylus support as well.

The tablet will be perfect for media consumption with its four AKG-tuned speakers and Dolby Atmos software. Also, it’s rated to last for over 14 hours on its 7040mAh battery. Although, you’ll have to use a USB-C to 3.5mm adapter (comes in the box) when you need to use headphones.

Other features of the tablet include face recognition (using only the front camera) and a built-in fingerprint reader. The latest Android 9 Pie-based One UI comes out of the box and has support for Samsung DeX. It also has Bixby, just in case you use that service.

Pre-orders for the Galaxy Tab S5E will begin on March 14 and it’ll ship on April 4. Pricing starts at US$ 400 or EUR 420 for the Wi-Fi-only variant. If you want LTE, you can have that for EUR 480.

New iOS 12.2 update hints at new iPads and rebirth of iPod Touch

New Apple products coming our way

Published

on

Apple recently rolled out a new beta update for its mobile operating system. The new iOS 12.2 beta will bring bug fixes and improvements, but there’s more hidden in the codes. The release of a new iPod Touch has been in the rumor mill for quite some time now that its release might come sooner, and there could also be new tablets from Apple.

As seen in the code of the first iOS 12.2 beta, there could be two iPads in the works. With an “iPad 11” moniker, the new tablets will come in both Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi+Cellular variants. Based on recent talk, we could expect an iPad Mini 5 and a new iPad 9.7-inch version.

Fans of the small tablet will be excited to know that a faster and newer iPad Mini is coming soon. There’s also speculation that the new regular iPad will have a slightly larger display with thinner bezels. Although, according to the developer who unearthed the code, the new iPads won’t have Face ID.

As for the resurrection of the iPod Touch, there’s very little info aside from the fact it’ll run iOS. Interestingly, there’s no reference in the code for either Touch or Face ID for the iPod Touch. This leads us to think that Apple might position the new iPod product as an affordable music player.

So far, there’s no scheduled Apple event on the calendar. We’re not expecting to see the new iPads and iPod Touch anytime soon, but they should be announced sometime this year.
