Samsung isn’t ready to give up on Android tablets, announces Galaxy Tab S6 review
Samsung on Wednesday announced the Galaxy Tab S6, the company’s latest Android tablet.
The statement comes just a week before the Aug. 7 Unpacked occasion where Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus.
Every Tab S6 comes with a new S Pen which attaches to the back of the pill and charges, very similar to this current-generation Apple Pencil’s charging system with the iPad Guru.
Samsung also added wireless controls to the S Pen, providing users the ability to snap photos using the S Pen as a remote shutter or scroll through their own gallery from across the room.
The Tab S6 features a 10.5-inch Super AMOLED display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chip, a 7,040mAh battery, a front-facing camera, two rear-facing cameras, and is available with 6GB or 8GB of memory and up to 256GB of storage.
There’s also an on-screen fingerprint reader in the Tab S6, very similar to the Galaxy S10 lineup for unlocking the device.
Preorders for your Tab S6 begin on Aug. 23 via Samsung.com with in-store accessibility beginning Sept. 6.
Samsung remains one of the last huge device makers to continue releasing Android tablets. Google has given up on making Android work on a tablet computer, focussing instead on releasing Chrome OS devices (with Android app support).
With Samsung declaring the Tab S6 and its plans for the Galaxy Fold’s new launch before the Note 10 event, the company is indicating the event will concentrate on its next smartphone and nothing else.
