Apple’s iPad has long enjoyed the top spot among tablets, with 31.4 percent of the market in the third quarter of 2019. Despite attempts by Microsoft, Samsung and Google to dethrone Apple, the iPad has continued to dominate.
According to Samsung’s website, however, the Galaxy Tab S6 may have what it takes to challenge the iPad: 5G. The 5G-enabled tablet is showing up with a “coming soon” label.
Details are sparse, with no information on release date, price or specifications. It’s a safe bet the device will command a premium, though, much like the 5G versions of its popular phones. It is also unclear what 5G bands the device will support: low-band, mid-range or the fastest mmWave.
What is clear is that Samsung may, at least in the short-term, give Apple a run for its money with the 5G Galaxy Tab S6.
