  Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S6 with 5G is coming soon A version of Samsung's Galaxy Tab S6 with 5G is likely to arrive in the coming months, according to the company's Korean website. SamMobile has found a reference to the device on a page on Samsung's Korea website, with the model number SM-T866.

In exchange for the lower price point, the Galaxy Book Flex α misses out on a few features like the Qi wireless charging pad that’s built into the trackpad or an included S Pen that slots into the laptop. (Samsung will offer an active pen for the Galaxy Book Flex α, but it’ll be sold separately.)

Available in the first half of 2020

On the hardware side, the Galaxy Book Flex α will be powered by Intel’s 10th Gen Core processors (Samsung isn’t saying which one just yet), 8GB or 12GB of RAM, and 256GB or 512GB of SSD storage. Samsung is also promising that the Galaxy Book Flex α will offer 17.5 hours of battery life off a single charge, with USB-C fast charging support to recharge quickly, too.

While Samsung hasn’t actually given firm prices or release dates for the more premium Galaxy Book Ion and Galaxy Book Flex (both of which are expected to launch in early 2020), the company says that it expects the Galaxy Book Flex α to slot in underneath those two products in its lineup, starting at $829.99 when it releases later in the first half of 2020.
