You would easily be forgiven for thinking that Android tablets have all but died out. Yet here we are in 2019 and Samsung has another tablet up its sleeves: The Galaxy Tab S6.
Why does this tablet exist? Did Samsung not get the memo? After all, even Google called it quits in 2015 after its Pixel C tablet didn’t set the world on fire. Regardless, perhaps Samsung sees something in the Galaxy Tab S6 that we can’t.
Make no mistake this is a powerhouse of a tablet with a 10.5-inch Super AMOLED display with a pixel rich 2,450 x 1,600 resolution. That alone is a good enough reason to own this tablet if you like to work and consume content while on the go.
That’s not all, you also get an S Pen with this tablet thus giving you the ability to take notes like you would on a Galaxy Note. The stylus has a built-in battery that offers up to 10 hours of use and even supports wireless charging.
Overall, that sounds impressive. But wait till you get a load of the Galaxy Tab S6’s guts. Inside, you will find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor with up to 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage.
There is a pretty big 7,040mAh battery inside that is non-removable. Though it is a pretty big battery we will have to wait and see for ourselves if it can truly last a full day.
Let’s not forget the cameras because even tablet users need to take photos. You get a dual-camera setup with a 13-Megapixel wide-angle camera and 5-Megapixel ultra-wide camera. There is even an 8-Megapixel selfie camera in front.
Given this is a Samsung tablet, you can expect to run Samsung’s DeX desktop mode if you were to plug it into a compatible display.
All in all, this could make for a compelling alternative for someone who doesn’t want to lug a massive laptop with them everywhere they go.
The Galaxy Tab S6 is hinted to have passed through Malaysia’s SIRIM certification so a launch in the near future is not out of the question.
