Apart from an impressive new high-end smartphone lineup
, Samsung also has an impressive new high-end tablet
in the pipeline, but if you're afraid you won't be able to afford the impending Galaxy Tab S6
, the slightly less impressive Galaxy Tab S5e
and Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2019)
are on sale at decent discounts right now.
Powered by a respectable upper mid-range Snapdragon 670 processor, the razor-thin 10.5-inch Tab S5e starts at $400 in a 64GB Wi-Fi-only variant, but if that doesn't sound enough to satisfy your digital hoarding needs, the 128 gig configuration costs $429.99 again after a cool $50 markdown. On top of that, you can get a book cover keyboard at half price with either the 64 or 128GB model, which brings the maximum savings available at the time of this writing up to no less than 115 bucks. That's $50 for the upper-tier tablet and $65 as far as the keyboard is concerned.
The lower-end Galaxy Tab A
10.1 (2019) can also be purchased in a bundle with a half-off book cover keyboard designed specifically for use alongside the slightly thicker, less eye-catching, and powerful 10-incher. Interestingly, the 64GB variant is not discounted itself, while the entry-level 32 gig and upper-tier 128 gig configurations are up for grabs at $30 and $50 less than usual respectively.
That means the latest Tab A 10.1 edition starts at $200 instead of a $230 list price, with a neat keyboard accessory fetching an extra 50 bucks after a $50 reduction. Compared to the Galaxy Tab S5e
, this thing comes with a lower-res, lower-quality LCD panel, less memory, a smaller battery, inferior sound technology, and no fingerprint scanner. Still, in terms of value for money, both Android Pie-running slates seem like knockouts right now.
