    Hello everyone.
    I know this is a stupid question but i'm go just ask.
    When the manufactured the Tab s 10.5 Wifi does it have the same hardware as the LTE?
    Is it possible to open the unit and just install the LTE hardware.
    Am i asking to much?

    Most of the hardware remains the same, however, antennas and chipsets do differ, so the motherboard and component placement won't fit (even if it were possible to 'plug and play' a different chipset onto it). It's not just 'an LTE chip and antenna' that needs to be added, it's a whole lot more.

    Or you can just buy an LTE router and connect your tablet to that.

    Problem with smartphone hotspots is that most of the time they're metered connections with less allotment than proper LTE Routers, so careful with that or you might incur charges.
