Samsung has confirmed it will launch the 5G tablet, and we now have some live While there is no official word on the matter yet, live images of the Galaxy Tab S6 5G has been published by Korean news outlet ITHome, along with a spec sheet that looks fairly authentic. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 was launched earlier in 2019 with 4G connectivity, sAMOLED display with slim bezels and Snapdragon 855 SoC. the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 5G will look similar to the non-5G version and will get most of the same specifications as well.

According to the leaked images, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 5G unsurpsingly retains the exact same design as that of the standard Galaxy Tab S6. The specifications are also identical, including a 10.5-inch S-AMOLED display panel. Interestingly, there does not appear to be any difference in the thickness of the device despite addition of the 5G modem. 

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 5G specifications mentioned in the live image reveal Snapdragon 855 SoC with 6GB RAM and 128GB native storage, along with a dedicated microSD card slot that can expand storage by up to 1TB. As for cameras, the tablet will feature a 13-megapixel primary sensor and 5-megapixel ultra wide lens on the back and an 8-megapixel front camera. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 5G will house a 7,040mAh battery — same as the battery on the 4G variant.

Samsung is yet to set a launch date for the Galaxy Tab S6 5G. Since the images have been allegedly taken in a retail store, it suggests the Tab S6 5G is already up for preview in select markets, with Korea presumably being the first country where it will be sold. Additionally, the Galaxy Tab S6 5G will initially be available only in Mountain Grey colour variant, but more colour variants may be available at a later stage. Samsung may decide to launch the Galaxy Tab S6 5G in India later this year once 5G commercially rolls out.
