The best news for anyone who might be interested in the tablet is the processor. The Snapdragon 855 is a big leap from the Tab S4 and S5e predecessors that arrived equipped with the Snapdragon 835 and Snapdragon 670, respectively.
As the S Pen now comes bundled in the box, and can be charged wirelessly by docking at the back of the tablet. Early information points to a weaker magnetic connection at the rear compared to the iPad Pro. However, the concave space will certainly give stability to charging.
The battery is another highlight. The 7040 mAh capacity will give 15 hours of use on a single charge, according to Samsung. Which will be interesting for those who use the device to work daily.
It is the first tablet with a wide angle lens
Photography is never the case, something we think about when we talk about tablets. However, Samsung decided to place dual cameras on the back of the tablet, the second sensor being a wide angle. This is, by the way, the first tablet to offer such feature.
The new Tab S6 also comes with a built-in biometric sensor on the screen. However, unlike the Galaxy S10, it does not have an ultrasonic sensor but an optical sensor. So it’s expected to be slower.
It has four speakers developed by AKG
The screen is 10.5 inches and features Super AMOLED quality and Quad-HD resolution. This picture quality in accordance with the four speakers developed by AKG should provide a top multimedia experience.
A separate keyboard can be purchased for the device that starts at $ 649 for the 6GB version of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The Tab S6 will hit stores on September 6, and the LTE version will be available later this year.
