The new tablet from Samsung is believed to be the closest iPad Pro rival released in 2019, but what exactly does the Galaxy S6 tablet has in store for the buyers? Here are the most important specs of the new device.
1. Design and display
Visually, the latest Samsung tablet release does not look too different from the other tablets released by the brand except for a few minor tweaks. The device will be available in three colours: Mountain Gray, Cloud Blue, and Rose Blush. The tablet will come equipped with the S Pen stylus, which will be attached with magnets and charged wirelessly.
In the front of the Samsung Galaxy S6 tablet, you will find a 10.5-inch Super AMOLED screen with a 2560 x 1600p resolution and slimmer bezels. There is also an in-screen fingerprint scanner for added security. The touchpad-enabled Book Cover keyboard, which is sold separately, will allow you to turn your table into an independent work station.
One of the most controversial design cues of the new Galaxy tablet is the lack of the 3.5mm headphone jack. Like Apple, Samsung decided to move past the popular format. The tablet will likely be shipped with a headphone adapter, but this decision is still not going to sit well with many buyers.
Samsung devices are known for their outstanding performance, and the Galaxy S6 tablet is not going to disappoint in this regard either. The Snapdragon 855 promises swift performance in any situation, as does the choice between 6GB and 8GB of RAM.
