Is tablet still a thing? Personally, I am observing less people are using it in the public like it used to. In any case, Samsung has just served up a new one called Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 for those who have a use for a digital slate. We have to commend on the narrow bezel. It looks like perfect balance between being sleek and still having just enough real estate to hold without triggering a bunch of things.
One of the obvious feature is S Pen which now magnetically sticks to the back of the device when not in use. Strange choice there. I guess sliding on the side looks too Apple-ish. The S Pen here features built-in BLE remote control features like S Pen Air actions, allowing you to wield the pen to control multimedia, take selfies and more, even when the tablet is not in your hands. And pretty amazingly, S Pen has wireless charging that provides up to 10 hours of use after just 10 minutes of charging.
Other notables include 10.5-inch WQXGA Super AMOLED display, 7 nm 64-bit octacore processor, up to 8GB RAM, up to 256 GB onboard storage, microSD support (up to 1 TB), in-display fingerprint scanner, a 8 MP front-facing camera, a dual camera (13 MP + 5 MP) main camera setup with ultra-wide 123-degree FoV lens, a 7,040 mAh battery, quad speakers sound by AKG and Dolby Atmos, Samsung Knox defense-grade security platform, Samsung voice assistant Bixby, the usual suspects of connectivity and sensors, and support for new-and-improved Samsung DeX for a PC-like experience.
All these goodies are packed inside a sleek, 244.5 x 159.5 mm form that measures just 5.7 mm thin and weighs 420g.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 will come with a starting price of $649.99 and it will be available in the first of September. There’s a LTE model which will arrive later this year.
