Galaxy Tab S5 could launch with the latest Snapdragon chipset

Samsung is working on a sequel to the Galaxy Tab S4, as it had been revealed a month ago. Expected to be the Galaxy Tab S5, the LTE version of the upcoming tablet (SM-T865) has shown up on the Geekbench benchmark database, revealing a couple of specs in the process. And it looks like the Galaxy Tab S4 successor will launch with the latest silicon inside instead of a year-old Snapdragon chip (the Tab S4 came out last year with a Snapdragon 835 instead of the Snapdragon 845).

Snapdragon 855, 6GB of RAM, Android Pie on the Tab S5

The Galaxy Tab S5 (a tentative name for the time being) is powered by the Snapdragon 855 chipset according to the Geekbench listing, along with 6GB of RAM. The substantial jump in the model number for the new tablet already suggested a major upgrade over the Tab S4, so it’s not completely surprising that it has a Snapdragon 855 under the hood. Also unsurprising is that it runs Android 9 Pie. If history is any guide, there’s next to no chance of Samsung upgrading it to Android Q before its retail launch, even though the company has pushed out the Android Pie update for its devices in record time.

The Geekbench listing doesn’t reveal any other specs, which is par for the course. Our sources had revealed that the Tab S5 would come with a minimum of 128GB of storage, but that’s pretty much it for now as far as hardware details are concerned. We can expect features like a big and beautiful Super AMOLED display, S Pen stylus support, and quad AKG-tuned speakers, and more information should be revealed as the weeks go by and we get closer to the tablet’s launch.

Sounds great, but the price should reach new heights with such specs

The tablet sounds like a beast but I can’t justify buying a new tablet given 99% of the time I will gravitate to my phone. It’s not 2012 where the phone screens and resolution is very small.

My tab S2 is still running like a champ and it’s been enough for my kids or occasional internet browse.

1. Why would you need a flashlight on a tablet? You have your phone
2. Why making phone calls from a tablet? You have phone app continuity…so you can receive phones on your tablet
3. They already have amoled on tab s4 and s5e so s5 will also have
4. They already have one ui on s4 and s5e…so s5 will also have

Why do i need a flashlight on a tablet? to take great pictures in low light conditions, to use the flashlight to illuminate in the dark when i need to. Who said i always have my phone? Some answers are just plain retarded , use case scenarios and environments differ

Why make phone calls from a tablet? LOL because i need to when i need to! Use case scenarios and environments are very different VERY VERY DIFFERENT! who said a phone call shouldn’t be made directly from a tablet? There are lots of cases where i need those functions
