Samsung’s Tab lineup gets a new flagship tablet, the Galaxy Tab S6 which is an improvement over last year’s Galaxy Tab S4. With all the spec bump and change in design, the Tab S6 can be called as an ‘Android’ alternative to Apple’s iPad Pro.
The new tablet has the latest Snapdragon 855 chipset with either 6GB/128GB or 8GB/256GB memory configurations. If in case the storage is not enough, the option for microSD card is always present. The front of the device is as eye-catching as it can get, thanks to a huge 10.5-inch Super AMOLED panel with a conventional 16:10 aspect ratio.
Being a tablet, Samsung has made sure the Galaxy Tab S6 provides the best in class multimedia experience, thus it gets a vivid display and quad speakers tuned by AKG and Dolby Atmos. This should make your movie-watching experience a lot more immersive.
At the back, surprisingly enough, Samsung has implemented two lenses; one which is a 13MP normal sensor with f/2.0 aperture and the second is a 5MP ultra-wide sensor with 123-degree field of view. This also makes it the first tablet to come with an ultra-wide camera. The front sees an 8MP selfie snapper.
Powering all these things is a 7,040mAh battery while the S Pen, which comes alongside the tablet, also has a small 0.35mAh capacity which offers 10 hours of usage. Thankfully, it takes only ten minutes to fully charge the stylus by placing on its own dock at the back.
Talking more about the S Pen — a beefed-up stylus from Note series — Samsung borrows a feature from its Galaxy Note 9 which makes the stylus act like a remote control for multimedia player and capturing photos.
Furthermore, there’s also support for Samsung’s DeX which works well when combined with the Book Cover Keyboard. This allows for better productivity and multi-tasking; more like a laptop.
Other features include an in-display optical fingerprint scanner also seen on the Galaxy S10 series, making it the first of its kind on a tablet.
As for the pricing, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 starts at a price of $649 for the 6GB/128GB variant, while the 8GB/256GB model will cost $729. Availability of the tablet in Nepal is yet to be known.
