Biggest Samsung is one of the brands that continue to bet on the Android tablet market. The company launched this year the Galaxy Tab S5e and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6, the latter being a high-end tablet that comes to replace the Galaxy Tab S4. But it seems that she will not be alone, since Bluetooth SIG (Bluetooth Special Interest Group) has revealed a model that, curiously, will be 5G.
This is the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 5G, whose model is SM-T866N. This already appeared in the WiFi Alliance and now, after being shown in Bluetooth SIG, its possible launch takes on more strength. Nothing is known about her, but if finally confirmed, we would be facing the first 5G tablet worldwide, and its development, with the arrival of streaming video game services, can make a lot of sense.
If we look at the 5G mobile market, largely occupied by Samsung (Galaxy S10 5G, Note 10+ 5G, Galaxy A90 5G and Galaxy Fold 5G), we will see that the component level differences between the 5G and 4G models is, Basically, the modem. Samsung has its own 5G modem, the Exynos 5100, and a SoC with integrated 5G, the Exynos 980, so opting for its own processors for the Galaxy Tab S6 5G would have several options available.

However, the Galax Tab S6 has a Snapdragon 855 processor, so it could be complemented with a Snapdragon X50 or X55 modem to create a 5G model. That way, the device would be prepared to be compatible with 5G networks and, therefore, would allow the user to take advantage of its benefits in terms of download speed and latency (especially when 5G SA arrives).
And what can that do? To prepare the tablet for streaming services such as Google Stadia and Project xCloud. In fact, during the presentation of the latter in October 2018 it was said that Samsung phones would be the first to be able to access, so this idea is not entirely crazy. The 5G offers better download speeds, up to 2 Gbps, and latencies of just a few milliseconds, so streaming video games would clearly benefit from this network. Be that as it may, this is only one possibility, since at the moment nothing is known about this tablet, nor is its release date known. We will wait for the Korean firm to announce it at some point, if that happens.
