With the new Galaxy Tab S6 coming our way, we’re finally getting a worthy successor to the Tab S4 and S5e, yet one thing is puzzling the masses. It looks and feels more like a Note 9, and the question is, should it?
The market of tablets has drastically dropped, the only big players being Apple with their everlasting iPads, Samsung, and Huawei. The Tab S6 aims to be Samsung’s flagship in the tablet segment and wants to deliver improved hardware across the board and share some of its features with Galaxy Note 9.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Is Sharing Similarities with the S5e and Galaxy Note
The S6 design was not something that came from scratch, better yet, Samsung had the design they wanted to implement on the S6 right off the bat from the S5e. The two devices share some components like the dimensions, battery capacity, display specs, or the four speakers that are supplied by AKG.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 tablet will be priced higher than the S5e and aims to compete with Apple’s iPad Prio 10.5. The device will also include an S-Pen that will be paired with Bluetooth 5.0 LE. The stylus will be deposited on the back of the machine where it will be held in place magnetically but also charged wirelessly.
The combination of the S-Pen and the tablet itself will make a great team, and the practicality of the remote control function that the S-Pen has will work fantastic on presentations, play and pause multimedia content, and can work as a remote trigger for the cameras as well.
A Second Camera for the Galaxy Tab S6
The S6 tablet will be the first of its kind to feature two main cameras. The primary camera will take pictures with 13 megapixels and the second camera with 5 megapixels, having a field of view of 123 degrees.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Price and Availability
The Galaxy Tab S6 will be available to pre-order between August 15 and 29 from the Samsung Shop and will be available in three colors: Mountain Grey, Cloud Blue, and Rose Blush, each coming with either 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage or 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. The prices will start at $649 for the lower-end tablet and $729 for the higher-end one.
