Samsung has announced the release of its flagship tablet, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6, which brings some improvements over its predecessor that are not necessarily related to the hardware.
The device is powered by the latest Snapdragon 855 chipset with 6GB / 128GB memory or 8GB / 256GB memory. If that’s not enough, MicroSD card support is also available. The tablet is based on a 10.5-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels – a 16:10 aspect ratio that takes productivity into account. Also multimedia is not too short, because the quad speakers from AKG and Dolby Atmos complete the movie experience.
To our surprise, the tablet also carries not one, but two cameras on the back. The most important is 13 MP, while the second one has an extremely wide field of view of 123 degrees. The front has an 8-megapixel camera for selfies and video calls. Anecdote: According to Samsung, this is the first tablet with an ultra-wide-angle camera.
A 7,040 mAh battery provides it with power, while the S Pen maintains a low charge of 0.35 mAh, which is sufficient for about 10 hours of use. Best of all, the stylus can be charged in its own dock in just ten minutes.
Speaking of S-pen: It can now be used as a remote control for your media player or to take pictures. Basically, it takes over the same functions as the S Pen of the Galaxy Note9.
In addition, the Galaxy Tab S6 supports the Samsung DeX, which can be turned into a PC in combination with the Book Cover Keyboard to increase productivity and multitasking.
For security reasons, Samsung has installed an optical fingerprint reader under the screen. This makes the tablet one of the first, if not the first, of its class to use this technology.
The device is available in the colors Mountain Gray, Cloud Blue and Rose Blush from 649 US $ for the 6 GB version of RAM and 128 GB memory, while the 8/256 GB version for 729 US dollars available becomes.
