While all eyes are now on Samsung’s Unpacked event set to take place on February 20, the Korean giant has gone ahead and releases a mid-range Galaxy Tab S5e. The 10-inch Android 9 Pie device is also Samsung’s slimmest and lightest slate to date and costs $400. That also means the tablet has to do away with the headphone jack, sadly. The stylish compact tablets does offer a lot of bang for the buck apart from first-ever features like Bixby 2.0, support for DeX, and a Super AMOLED display.
