The new Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e features Android 9.0 Pie out of the box.

Samsung’s Unpacked event is just days away and in that event, we’re expecting to see the new S10, S10+, and possibly the Galaxy Fold. So, as to devote enough time to their flagship devices. Samsung is making an Android tablet announcement ahead of the bigger Unpacked event. The company has just announced the new Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e Android tablet.

The company says the new Galaxy Tab S5e is slim, light, and packed with smart features. The tablet does feature Android Pie 9.0 out of the box, so that’s something of consequence.

The Tab S5e is a top-tier tablet with a sleek design and powerful features, available at a new price point. 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 has a sleek 5.5mm metal body and weighs in at 400 grams. Samsung is offering it up in three colors, Silver, Black, and Gold. Samsung says the battery-life on the Tab S5e should last users up to 14.5-hours.

The Tab S5e is also the first tablet to get Samsung’s AI assistant, Bixby. That may be a welcome addition for some and a nightmare for others. Bixby is great if you’re already a Samsung SmartThings user. Bixby will give you a central place to interact with your other smart devices. So you can switch on lights, TVs, and other IoT devices from your tablet.

Whether it’s an edge-of-your-seat movie or your favorite TV series, experience content fully and in outstanding detail on Samsung’s iconic and immersive Super AMOLED display, complete with a 16:10 screen ratio and no visible home key.

The Galaxy Tab S5e offers a 10.5-inch Edge to Edge Display and slimmed-down bezels to create an unprecedented 81.8% screen-to-body ratio for an enhanced viewing experience that will bring your content to life. With the Tab S5e, you can also experience the outstanding YouTube Premium service, free for up to 4 months. Enjoy all your favorite content across YouTube, YouTube Music and YouTube Gaming without limits and in stunning definition.
