Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S6 is a $649 Tablet in a World Without Many Android Tablets

Galaxy Tab S6

Samsung pushed out the first of two pre-Note 10 announcements this morning when it unveiled the Galaxy Tab S6. The new tablet from Samsung costs $649 and comes with a set of high-end specs, as well as an S Pen.

For specs, you are looking at a 10.5-inch WQXGA Super AMOLED display, Snapdragon 855 processor, 6GB or 8GB RAM, 128GB or 256GB storage (with microSD support), rear dual camera (13MP + 5MP), 8MP front camera, 7040mAh battery (with fast charging), Bluetooth 5.0, in-display fingerprint reader, and 4 speakers tuned by AKG (with Dolby Atmos support).

Outside of the dirty details, Samsung wants this to be an entertainment device that also gets stuff done with the help of their DeX desktop software. You have an S Pen on hand with Bluetooth controls, just like the Note series, plus it magnetically attaches to the S6 to wireless charge. There are accessories too, like a book cover keyboard, book cover without keyboard, and a POGO charging dock.

It’s a fully-featured tablet here, guys.

The WiFi version of the Galaxy Tab S6 goes up for pre-order on August 23 and arrives September 6. Again, it costs $649 to start and comes in Cloud Blue, Mountain Gray, and Rose Blush. An LTE version will arrive later on down the road.
