Hit the break for details on both devices from Samsung.
With the Galaxy Tab E, T-Mobile is hoping to attract customers who want a very cheap tablet from a very popular brand.
Samsung’s Galaxy Tab E has an 8-inch (1280×800) display, Exynos 3475 processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot, a 5MP rear camera and 2MP front camera, and a 5000mAh battery. Running behind TouchWiz is Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
T-Mobile’s variant of this tablet will go on sale on June 22 for $239, but that price tag can be chopped up into monthly payments of $10 for twenty-four months.
The Galaxy On5 is similar to the Galaxy Tab E in that it has budget-friendly specifications. This phone features a 5-inch (1280×720) display, quad-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot, a 5MP rear camera and a 2MP front camera, and a 2600mAh battery. It also runs Marshmallow at its core.
T-Mobile will start selling the Galaxy On5 on June 29 for $139, but the monthly payment plan with $0 down scales that back to $5.83 per month for twenty-four months. MetroPC, too, will be offering this phone to its customers. The T-Mobile-owned prepaid carrier will release the Galaxy On5 on June 27 with a $59 price tag that includes an instant rebate of $70.
The Galaxy Tab E and Galaxy On5 from Samsung both support T-Mobile’s 2, 4, and 12 bands.
Let it be known, though, that these two devices are not for everyone. The specs are really light (like the 1.5GB of RAM), hence the shockingly low prices, and could indicate performance is not too good.
