Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S6 Stubbornly Holds On To The Android Tablet Dream

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.
