In what is presumably a bid to avoid being buried by bigger news, Samsung has announced the Galaxy Tab S5e a few days ahead of their Unpacked press conference.

“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 Galaxy Tab S5e features a 5.5mm sleek metal body and a 10.5-inch, WQXGA, edge-to-edge, Super AMOLED screen.

Under the hood, it runs on Android 9.0, a 64-bit Octa-core processor and a 7040mAh battery. The Tab S53 also has two cameras: a 13-megapixel one on the back and an 8-megapixel one on the front. There will be two memory/storage configurations on offer: 4GB + 64GB or 6GB + 128GB.

Samsung claim the tablet will be good for fourteen hours of battery life per charge.

In the US, the new tablet also comes with a free four month subscription to Google's YouTube Premium music and video streaming service and a free three month subscription for Spotify Premium (assuming you don't already have a Spotify account). We're still waiting on confirmation on whether Australian buyers will get the same deals.

Samsung say that The Tab S5e will be available in select markets including U.S., Germany and other countries from 2Q 2019. Samsung Electronics Australia has confirmed that the Tab S5e will be coming to Australia. However, it doesn't look like we'll learn when or how much it'll cost until closer to launch.
