Samsung has become the top most leaders in the smartphones and it has proved the same in past couple of years. Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy S5 was its great success. In every couple of months, Samsung release atleast one gadget based on Android and it seems like Samsung wants to eat whole the share of Android market. But in case of Android tablets, Samsung is still not the top most verdicts. Recent released iPad Air 2 from Apple was revolutionary and Apple remained at its top most standard in the market. On other hand, in 2014 Samsung also released the Galaxy Tab S 8.0 powered with all latest hardware but still it got mixed in the market and didn’t collect the more popularity, but here comes the news that soon Samsung is going to reveal the Samsung Galaxy Tab 5 series.
Galaxy Tab series was first announced in 2010 September and it was mid range Android tablet series and in past years Samsung launched Galaxy Tab 2, Tab 3 and Tab 4, respectively in 2012, 2013 and 2014. The Galaxy Tab 4 was quite successful but it was not revolutionary. In the Android market, few Chinese manufacturers like Xioami has shaken the whole market with their outstanding but cheap products and the results have to face by Samsung, Apple and Sony like big brands. But now it seems like, Samsung had planned and going to blast in the series with all new Samsung Galaxy Tab 5 series, which would have 7inches, 8inches and 10inches format tablet.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 5 release date possibilities:
Within couple of months, we might witness the official announcement of Galaxy Tab 5 series from Samsung. But if specifically talk about the Samsung Galaxy Tab 5 release date, then it may fall in the month of April or May 2015. So, you don’t have to wait more as these dates are approaching near. 2015 would be definitely more interesting if Samsung power its Galaxy Tab 5 with the latest hardware and specifications and again, it should be offered for lower price.
- Galaxy Tab 2 release date – April 2012
- Galaxy Tab 3 release date – April, 2013
- Galaxy Tab 4 release date – May, 2014
- Samsung Galaxy Tab 5 release date – April or May 2015?
Well, confirming the release of next Android tablet range from Samsung at this point would not make sense, but in the World Mobile Congress 2015 week, we might hear the official announcement date. So, let’s wait for a while and hear official information.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 5 Specs and Features
- Galaxy Tab 5 7.0 inches – 1080p display
- Galaxy Tab 5 8.0 inches – 1080p display
- Galaxy Tab 5 10.1 inches – 1080p display
Samsung would launch the Galaxy Tab 5 in the three formats but the hardware configuration might be the same. The previous generation Galaxy Tab tablets from Samsung was having the low-resolution display but this year we would have full HD resolution display. The reason behind the full HD display is not only the competition but also the need and trend. In the market there exists few tablets having 2K resolution display, so Samsung should at least move to full HD resolution display.
Another thing that we can find in the Samsung Galaxy Tab 5 series tablet is the Touch ID button, Android fans are finding this touch ID button a very interesting feature but in general it is not that comfortable to use every time as we need to unlock the device. Also, this year Samsung Galaxy Tab 5 might be protected against the water and dust. And we hope if such characteristics would exist in these tablets then it would make the whole Samsung Galaxy Tab series more interesting and durable. Also, it would be good for competition, as other manufactures are selling their tablets for very cheap in the market. But one who looks for a good brand and better characteristics tab then it would be an interesting decision.
- Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset, Quad-core 2.4Ghz processor
- 2GB RAM
- 16, 32 and 64GB onboard storage
- microSD card slot – support up to 128GB
- Full HD display – 7inches, 8 inches and 10.1 inches

The above Galaxy Tab 5 Specifications and features and based on rumours and concept images, at present there exists no proper information that can confirm these features. Yes, the above specs look most possible and expected specification. And if Samsung is really going to supply the Samsung Tab 5 with the above hardware then Galaxy Tab 5 might be the pretty good if you are looking for a good tablet in mid range price segment.
To conclude something at this time, would not be possible as official announcement of Galaxy Tab 5 are not yet happened but soon it would be done in near future, at present if you are looking for Galaxy Tab 5 price range then you can just compare to the previous generation prices of the same segment and it is expected that it would be little lower because of the competition in the market. So, let’s wait and watch that Samsung would bring which kind of devices in 2015 and at present, Samsung fans like me are expecting something big for the mid-range devices. Galaxy Tab 5 would be the flawless and good performing devices if Samsung engineers would able to overcome the problem of Galaxy Tab 4.
