Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S6 Leaks Ahead of Launch

Samsung’s big Unpacked event is just around the corner. The company is expected to introduce the next iteration to the Galaxy Note lineup at the event, and it will also introduce a new tablet at the event: the Galaxy Tab S6.

The folks at Android Headlines got their hands on some official renders of the new tablet, which reveals a number of details about the device. First things first, the new device will feature a Surface Type Cover-like keyboard that you can buy separately and attach to the device. It will also feature a dual-camera setup on the back, with one of the cameras possibly offering a wider field of view. The cameras still won’t be anything mind-blowing, with Samsung putting a 5MP wide-angle sensor, along with a 13MP main sensor.

And that’s all pretty minor, but Samsung is making some other big changes to the design with the Tab S6. The leaked renders show that you won’t be able to put the S Pen inside the device itself — instead, it will magnetically attach to the back:

That could mean you will be able to charge the S Pen wirelessly by the Tab S6, but it is still a very uncomfortable design choice if we are being honest. Maybe Samsung’s made the device so thin that it can no longer afford to make space for the pen to be housed inside the device?

Anyway, the new device also gets rid of the headphone jack, much like the Note 10 is doing. Otherwise, most of the device shouldn’t hold any other surprises — it’s supposed to feature a 10.5-inch display, powered by the Snapdragon 855, 6GB of RAM, and up to 256GB of storage. It will come in a pink/rose gold finish, as well as grey and blue finishes.
