Galaxy Tab S5e price may be lower for Europe than initially announced
Samsung may reduce the pricing for the Galaxy Tab S5e, its newest AMOLED-toting tablet, in Europe. Samsung initially announced the Galaxy Tab S5e will start at 419 euro for the Wi-Fi variant, and that equates to around $475, which is considerably higher than the $399 price tag in the US. However, Samsung Netherlands tells us the pricing may be reduced in the near future before the tablet goes on sale in European markets like the Netherlands.
The Galaxy Tab S5e is rather aggressively priced, with Samsung saving costs by downgrading specs such as the chipset that powers the tablet (a Snapdragon 670) and not offering support for an S Pen while keeping the Super AMOLED display and quad AKG-tuned speakers from the Galaxy Tab S4 intact (though the screen size is slightly smaller now). The Tab S5e’s biggest claim to fame is its ultra-thin 5.5mm body, which holds a 7,040 mAh battery. The Tab S5e also comes with Bixby 2.0, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, and Android Pie with One UI, all of which haven’t been seen on any previous Galaxy tablet.
The Galaxy Tab S5e will go on sale in Germany, the US, and a few other markets sometime in March, and we should get more details on the European pricing as we approach the release date.
