Tech News: The upcoming Samsung tablet might come in two sizes with 5G support.
Samsung typically releases two Tab Ss in one year and we’re getting closer to what historically would have been the time for a “Lite” version. While we don’t have specifics to discuss at the moment, it is believed that one or even two mid-range tablets are on the way, including the first in its class that can connect to 5G.
SamMobile is listening from sources that the Galaxy Tab S7 Lite or Tab S8e will adopt model numbers SM-T730, -T735, -T736B and T736N – the different signal connectivity of Wi-Fi, LTE and 5G (presumably one model supports millimeter wave while the other does not and remains below 6 GHz) in the respective order. The Galaxy Tab S7 was the company’s first globally available tablet to offer 5G connectivity.
Judging by the model numbers, this product line would be more of a spiritual successor to the Galaxy Tab S5e, as it occupied the SM-T720 and -T725 slots, but nothing is certain here: the Galaxy S6 Lite had the SM-P610 model names and -P615.
The publication also hears that a “Plus” or “XL” version of this upcoming tablet lineup may also be launched. Other than the screen, we have no idea what else could be scaled.
