There’s still a need for tablets to enjoy content on the go and for educational purposes too. To fulfill that need, Samsung has added a trio of spanking new slates to their current line-up that cover a gamut of prices and performance envelopes. In Malaysia, they’ve debuted the premium Galaxy Tab S5e, the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 and the Galaxy Tab A with S-Pen.
Galaxy Tab S5e
The Galaxy Tab S5e is a compact premium entertainment slate that spots a 10.5-inch Super AMOLED display, a quartet of speakers in each of the tablet for added aural oomph when watching movies and gaming in equal measure, a 2.0Ghz octacore processor paired up with 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage, all crammed into a machined aluminium casing that’s just 5.5mm thin that weighs a mere 400g. For food capturing and selfie duties, the Galxy Tab S5e has a rear-facing 13-MP camera while an 8-MP snapper covers the front of the slate.
For security verification, the notebook comes with a fnngerprint reader built into the power button. What makes the Galaxy Tab S5e especially appealing is that it has Samsungs vaunted DeX support that lets you, assuming you have a HDMI cable to a monitor or TV, project a desktop mode for productivity purposes. The slate also has an Pogo keyboard cover for that protects the tablet and has a full set of keys to get some work done on the go. Keeping it all powered is a 7,040mAh battery that offers about 15 hours of battery life before needing a juicing. If this floats your boat the Galaxy Tab S5e retails for RM1,999 for the tablet only.
Galaxy Tab A 10.1 2019 and Galaxy Tab A with S-Pen
The Galaxy Tab A 10.1 2019 is designed as an affordable large-screened tablet. The slate has a modest raft of hardware with a 10.1-inch WUXGA display paired with a pair of dual speakers at the base of the tablet flanking the Type C charging port, a 1.8GHz octacore processor, a rear 8-MP camera paired up with a front-facing 5-MP camera and a 6,150mAh battery to keep things ticking for quite awhile. The Galaxy Tab A 10.1 2019 has two subvariants, one with Wi-Fi only and the other with LTE connectivity that also lets you make calls. The Wifi only variant has 2GB RAM and 32GB of storage with a price tag of RM899 while the LTE variant has 3GB RAM, a similar 32GB of storage and a loftier RM1,299 price tag.
Created with an emphasis on the S Pen stylus for creative purposes, the Galaxy Tab A with S Pen has an 8.0-inch WUXGA display, a 1.8GHz octacore, 3GB RAM with 32GB of storage and comes with the aforementioned S Pen stylus for doodling and note taking duties.
