Samsung’s last stylus-based tablet was unveiled in August 2019, the Galaxy Tab S6, but it seems they’re already working on a new one. Samsung seems to have discovered a booming demand for stylus-based devices, between the Galaxy Note 10 Lite ready for debut and this new slate.
According to SamMobile, the South Korean company is working on a new tablet, codenamed SM-P610. It’ll come with WiFi support and a separate 4G LTE model, codenamed SM-P615. A 64 GB based model is in the making, as well as a 128 GB one. The S-Pen will be offered together with a book cover accessory. I’m sure the price will be pretty high, well unless we’re talking about a Galaxy Tab S6e or S7e, as a higher midrange offering.
The Tab S5e filled that exact slot, with a Snapdragon 670 CPU, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, plus a 7040 mAh battery. We could even be dealing with a Galaxy Tab A with S Pen, something we have yet to see. A Tab A 2019 already came this year, with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, plus an Exynos 7904 CPU and a 4200 mAh battery. Sources say that we may see an announcement at MWC 2020 in February, or maybe a debut during the Galaxy S11 February 18th event.
I’m curious if the pen attaches magnetically to back like on the Tab S6.
