Samsung has upgraded its flagship Galaxy Tab S6 to make it the first 5G tablet in the world. However, you might not be able to buy it.
5G smartphones and laptops are already here but Samsung has made sure the tablet market doesn’t get left behind. A new version of the Tab S6 includes 5G connectivity for faster internet on-the-go.
As you might imagine, it’s called the Galaxy Tab S6 5G.
It goes on sale today, 30 January, but only in South Korea and Samsung has given no indication if or when it will roll out to other markets. In Korea it costs 999,900 won (around £850/$850) and comes with 128GB storage in mountain gray.
Samsung may well launch the Tab S6 5G in countries that have 5G networks like the UK and US but we’ll have to wait and see.
The 5G connectivity is achieved by the inclusion of a Qualcomm Samsung X50 modem, compared to the X24 modem found in the 4G LTE model.
Otherwise, the tablet is exactly the same with a 5.7mm profile, 10.5in Super AMOLED screen, AKG quad speakers and a bundled S Pen stylus.
