Samsung Electronics today announced Galaxy Tab S6 – a new tablet that allows people to create and connect, enjoy entertainment, and accomplish their goals wherever they go.
“Today’s inspiration comes at a moment’s notice and creatives and professionals need a device able to keep up with insatiable imaginations while complementing their busy, on-the-go lifestyles,” said DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics. “Galaxy Tab S6 enables consumers to unlock their creativity, while delivering the top-quality productivity features and advanced technology they have come to expect from Samsung tablets.”
Samsung’s S Pen began as an instrument for writing and drawing, but it has evolved to become a creativity and productivity partner. Now with remote control functionality and wireless charging capabilities, S Pen on Galaxy Tab S6 puts even more power and control in users’ hands. With built-in BLE remote control features including a gesture function called S Pen Air actions, S Pen lets you take selfies and videos, or control the multimedia content you create even when the tablet is not in your hands. Plus, S Pen features wireless charging that delivers up to 10 hours of battery life after just ten minutes’ charge time.
Galaxy Tab S6 makes taking notes with S Pen easy. Handwritten Samsung Notes can be converted to digital text and exported to formats like Microsoft Word with just one click. You can also jot down quick notes or sketches while watching a video on the same screen by adjusting the Samsung Notes’ window transparency.
An improved version of Samsung DeX is also packed into the Galaxy Tab S6, enabling you to seamlessly transition to a PC-like experience, so you can easily multitask and optimize your viewing experience. With a DeX function key added to the Galaxy Tab S6’s new dedicated Book Cover Keyboard, you can launch and close DeX with the tap of a key. The keyboard has been fine-tuned for better functionality, including an S Pen holder, free angle stand, touch pad and new function keys.
Galaxy Tab S6 also packs new enhancements to its camera, including Samsung’s first dual camera with Ultra Wide camera on a tablet, within a compact 5.7mm body that is both lighter and more portable. The Ultra Wide camera allows users to capture the scenery and landscapes just as they see them with a 123-degree field of view, as wide as the human eye. You have the primary 13-megapixel sensor, a 5-megapixel ultrawide option and an 8-megapixel selfie camera upfront. Meanwhile, the Neural Processing Unit lets you take professional photos through enhanced effects to your subjects.
Samsung is also bringing the on-screen Fingerprint Scanner to its tablet for the first time with Galaxy Tab S6. This convenience is further protected by Samsung Knox, Samsung’s defense-grade security platform. Additionally, you can wake your Galaxy Tab S6 by tapping on the screen twice.
As a part of Samsung’s Galaxy Ecosystem, the Galaxy Tab S6 becomes a hub of your connected experience to manage your appliances with SmartThings. Together with Bixby, you can control your devices via voice commands.
The Galaxy Tab S6 has a 10.5” Super AMOLED display, paired with quad speakers sound by AKG and Dolby Atmos.
A powerful processor and Game Booster with AI capabilities enhance the gaming experience on the tablet through optimized FPS, screen lag, loading time and more. Thanks to Samsung’s partnership with Discord,you can access new live chat features through Game Launcher so you can strategize with your teammates throughout the game.
With Galaxy Tab S6, you can also browse Netflix content on the device's Finder, enjoy music on Spotify with three months of free Spotify Premium, or watch your favorite YouTube videos ad-free, offline, and on-the-go with four free months of YouTube Premium.
The Galaxy Tab S6 comes in Mountain Gray, Cloud Blue and Rose Blush colors. It will be available in stores and online beginning late August in select markets for $649 for the base model, which offers 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. You can upgrade to an 8GB/256GB configuration for $729.
