The Galaxy Tab A 10.1's Wi-Fi variant is priced at Rs 14,999, while the Wi-Fi +LTE variant is priced at Rs 19,999. "Galaxy Tab S5e provides a PC-like environment on-the-go, thanks to DeX. It is a workstation and tablet rolled into one," said Aditya Babbar, Director, Mobile Business, Samsung India.
"We've also redefined the entertainment experience with an immersive Super AMOLED display and perfectly-tuned, true-to-life quad speakers," he added in a statement.
With 5.5mm sleek metal body, and weighing only 400 grams, the Galaxy Tab S5e is not only ultra-portable, but its battery life can also support up to 14.5 hours of video streaming, Samsung said.
Armed with Samsung DeX mode, Galaxy Tab S5e acts as a pop-up office for users. It allows the user to easily switch between DeX mode and Android mode by connecting the tablet to its dedicated POGO Keyboard, which is sold separately.
The Galaxy Tab A 10.1 comes with a metal unibody design and offers Full HD corner-to-corner display. The device weighs less than 470 grams and measures only 7.5 mm thick. The Galaxy Tab S5e will go on sale from Monday across all leading retail stores, Samsung e-Shop and Samsung Opera House.
