It’s no secret that Android tablets are in an ungainly position. While Apple’s iPad stays an essential part of its product line-up, even Google has given up on making an equivalent. However, Samsung hasn’t given up on Android tablets just yet. Today it declared the Galaxy Tab S6. It’s clear the tablet has taken some inspiration from the brand new iPad Pro, but it surely has a couple of tricks of its personal too.
- 5″ Super AMOLED Display
- 6GB + 128 GB or 8GB + 128GB RAM and storage configurations
- Snapdragon 855 or Exynos 9610
- 7,040 mAh battery (15 hours battery life claimed)
- 8MP front camera
- 13MP + 5MP rear cameras
- Four AKG audio system with Dolby Atmos technology
- Optical fingerprint sensor
- New Bluetooth S-Pen
It’s the same old spec bump here – smartphone specs stuffed into a bigger body. That’s one benefit Apple has: its iPad Pros are always considerably more highly effective than its iPhones, allowing you to manage considerably greater workloads on its tablet.
That’s not to say the Tab S6 is a slouch – are smartphones specs are plenty powerful as it’s, and a tablet’s true power comes from the bigger body. Samsung is known for stuffing its devices with features, and the Tab S6 is no different.
Key among the enhancements over the Tab S4 (there was no Tab S5, only a midrange Tab S5e) is the brand new remote control S-Pen Samsung first launched with the Galaxy Note 9. This lets you do issues use the S-Pen as a remote shutter or skip songs. The S-Pen does have to be charged now, but it surely does so when attached to the body magnetically, and a 10-minute cost will get you through a full day of use.
