Samsung Aim To Deliver “World-First” 5G-Enabled Tablet
Samsung is looking to bring ultra-fast connection to tablets for the first time ever with the company working on a 5G version of the Galaxy Tab S6, according to listings surfacing on Wi-Fi Alliance and Bluetooth SIG.
According to the listings, first discovered by GalaxyClub, Samsung published the Galaxy Tab S6 5G to the two organisations, which approval is needed from before public release, in July and September and carries the model numbers SM-T865N and SM-T866N.
The report does note that due to the “N” in the model numbers, it more than likely indicates that the model will be first slated for release in Samsung’s home country of South Korea.
If these listings are legitimate, this would mark the second time the device will score another “world first”, with the tablet previously being the first that comes with a HDR10+ display.
In terms of 5G-capable devices, Samsung has already sold over two million of their 5G variants in 2019, including the Galaxy S10, Note 10, Galaxy A90 and Galaxy Fold.
So, updating its tablets to highlight Samsung’s move towards 5G seems like a natural next step and a no-brainer for the company.
In other Samsung news, the company has recently closed its last factory in China due to stiff competition from local brands making it no longer economically viable to manufacture devices there.
