Samsung on Friday began selling three tablets to consumers, including two that were previously unannounced. The third, for its part, only recently hit the news cycle by way of a teaser video.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e, Galaxy Tab A 10.1, and Galaxy View2 are now available to purchase with starting prices of $400, $230, and $740, respectively.
Galaxy Tab S5e
According to Samsung, the Galaxy Tab S5e is the thinnest and lightest tablet ever at just 5.5mm thick and 400g. With a 10.5-inch Super AMOLED 2560 x 1600 pixel display at 16:10 aspect ratio, it’s offered with 4GB/64GB and 6GB/128GB configurations. A microSD expansion card slot allows for up to 512GB of media.
Designed to go anywhere and everywhere, the tablet offers up a fingerprint reader, facial recognition, and the ability to pair with a keyboard. Other details include AKG-powered speakers and Samsung DeX, making it a truly versatile and well-rounded experience.
Galaxy Tab A 10.1
The Galaxy Tab A series is the less expensive, all-purpose tablet line and the 2019 is no exception. Weighing roughly one pound, it comes with a 10.1-inch display (1920 x 1080 pixels), 2GB RAM, and at least 32GB storage. Rounding things out, the tablet has a microSD card slot, stereo speakers, headphone jack, and USB Type-C.
Sold in Black, Gold, and Silver colors, you can choose from 2GB/32GB ($230), 3GB/64GB ($280), and 3GB/128GB ($330) builds.
Galaxy Tab View2
The super-large screen tablet experience gets a refresh for 2019, bringing with it new specifications. Available through both Samsung and AT&T, the Tab View2 houses a 17.3-inch display at 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution.
With a built-in kickstand, the tablet weighs just under five pounds as is designed for counter tops and desks. Powering things is a Samsung Exynos 7884 processor with 3GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. A microSD slot provides up to 400GB of removable storage.
The View2 has quad speakers with Dolby Atmos sound and a 12,000mAh battery ensures you’ve got plenty of juice for consuming media. While it doesn’t pack a TV tuner of any sorts, it’s the sort of device that AT&T would love to see consumers use for watching DirecTV. Pick this one up for $740 direct or through the service provider.
