Slim, strong, and speedy.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 is a much slimmer upgrade from its previous devices. It comes with a stylus pen that is much more integrated into the device, as well as pro-grade specs. Samsung wants to show that a non-Apple tablet can replace the laptop and be serviceable at the same time.
A revamped Book Cover keyboard is a huge upgrade, but many people feel that jumping from the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 to the S6 is not enough of an upgrade to warrant that. It is, however, a very good alternative to the iPad Pro, as the lower price and stylus help it compete with its biggest competitor.
The design is slimmer and lighter than the S4 and the iPad Pro. There is a 10.5-inch screen, Dolby Atmos-tuned speakers, and a single front-facing camera. A rear-facing camera is also available that has a 123-degree field-of-view lens, which is identical to the Samsung Galaxy S10 phone.
The RAM is bumped up to either 6GB or 8GB (your choice) with increases to 128GB storage or 256GB, depending on what GB you go with. Battery life, according to Samsung, is supposed to be a full day on a charge.
The Galaxy Tab S6 is able to host Netflix without any slowing glitches, and also features an in-screen fingerprint sensor, which tends to be more accurate than facial recognition.
People who love Samsung will love this upgraded Galaxy Tab. Perhaps a bit more could have been done to upgrade it, but it definitely shows improvements from the S4.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 is set to release in early September with a starting price of $649. Pre-ordering begins on August 23rd.
