“The Galaxy Watch 2 and Galaxy Tab S5 will come as a successor to the last year’s Galaxy Watch and Galaxy Tab S4”
Samsung could be seen refreshing its flagship wearable and tablet segment at the ongoing quarter. A purported leaked timeline reveals that the chaebol is gearing up to launch the Galaxy Tab S5 and Galaxy Watch 2 in the third quarter of this year, which will run from July to September. Both the devices will succeed Samsung’s current flagships the Galaxy Tab S4 and Galaxy Watch that were unveiled last year alongside the Galaxy Note9. Notably, Samsung has already scheduled the launch of its next-gen Galaxy Note 10 series smartphones on August 7th. We speculate that the next-gen Galaxy Watch 2 and Galaxy Tab S5 could debut at the same event.
The Galaxy Tab S5 will be flagship-grade slate from Samsung, and as rumours suggest, it could come with the mighty Snapdragon 855 SoC ticking at its core. The SoC will most likely be paired with at least 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage. It’s being said that the company may phase out 64GB storage variant from the series with its upcoming tablet. Moreover, Samsung is expected to continue the tradition of offering an S Pen stylus with its flagship tablets. We may see a couple of new features added to the S Pen with the new Galaxy Tab S5.
The Galaxy Watch 2, on the other hand, will succeed the original Galaxy Watch from Samsung. The timeline reveals that the wearable will be out in two sizes: 40mm and 44mm. Apart from this, there isn’t much we know about the wearable at the moment. Meanwhile, the company is also gearing up to launch Galaxy Book 3 in Q3, and a 10-inch Galaxy Tab Active 3 rugged tablet, aimed at the business market, in September.
