Specs comparison: Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 vs Galaxy Tab S5e


Last updated: February 15th, 2019 at 14:43 UTC+01:00

No one expected a true successor to the Galaxy Tab S4 so soon, and the newly announced Galaxy Tab S5e doesn’t claim to be one. Samsung is clearly trying to put the Galaxy Tab S5e as an option on the market to tide over people until the Galaxy Tab S5 arrives, so those who have a Galaxy Tab S4 will not find the need to upgrade to the Tab S5e.

But that doesn’t mean people won’t be interested, and while we can’t say anything about the Galaxy Tab S5e before we get our hands on it, we can make it easy for you to see how the new tablet compares to the Galaxy Tab S4 as far as the specifications and hardware are concerned.
