Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S6 Leaks Ahead of Launch

Posted on July 18, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Android, Hardware with 5 Comments

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.

    I would expect it to be crazy thin and light like the Galaxy Tab S5e.

    I might just buy an Android tablet for the first time ever... wow. This thing is expected to be pretty powerful, what with the 855 and what is expected to be a 1440p screen. The only thing that gives me pause is that stylus notch in the back. If you're charging the stylus (I'm guessing it will wirelessly charge) it looks like you will not be able to lay the tablet flat on its back. That it looks like a carbon copy of the iPad Pro is questionable, but it's a great looking design so I can't blame Samsung. Promising device, this.

    I, and others thought there was supposed to be a Tab S5 "normal" edition to be released...before the move to Tab S6.

    How is it possible to write about a new tablet device without mentioning the size of the screen? I'm assuming 10" here but Samsung has made Galaxy tablets in all kinds of sizes. Seems like an important attribute to mention.

    The S pens are not powered. So I guess its just a convinient notch to hold it. I currently use a Surface pen loop with my Galaxy Tab S3 .... looks like time for an upgrade
