Earlier this year, Samsung introduced its latest Galaxy Tab S series Android tablet called the Galaxy Tab S6. The slate arrived as a flagship-grade offering with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 processor, dual rear cameras, an in-display fingerprint sensor, and 4G LTE connectivity. The company is now reportedly working on a 5G variant of the Galaxy Tab S6. The Galaxy Tab S6 5G was certified by Bluetooth SIG and Wi-Fi Alliance two months ago. Now, ahead of the official announcement, the same slate has received certification from yet another regulatory authority, the National Radio Research Agency in South Korea.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 5G has been certified by the NRRA under the model number SM-T866N, which is similar to the slate’s earlier listings on Bluetooth SIG and Wi-Fi Alliance. The slate received the certification on December 2nd. The listing in the database of NRRA confirms the existence of 5G connectivity on the upcoming variant of the Galaxy Tab S6. Unfortunately, the certification hasn’t revealed anything about the specifications of the tablet at the moment. However, it does indicate that the slate will be launched very soon in South Korea.
