The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 (SM-T860) Tablet

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 is a new premium tablet with a brilliant 10.5-inch Super AMOLED display, and a redesigned Bluetooth S Pen that now attaches magnetically to its back.

Despite packing in flagship-class performance and capabilities, Samsung actually made it thinner at just 5.7 mm, and lighter at just 420 grams!

Samsung is also introducing a Book Cover case, a Book Cover Keyboard, and a POGO Charging Dock as optional accessories for the Galaxy Tab S6.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Performance

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8150 mobile SoC, which is almost the performance equal of the Snapdragon 855 used in their Galaxy S10 flagship smartphones!

It also comes with either 6 GB or 8 GB of LPDDR4x memory, which makes it a breeze to use multiple apps at the same time.

Storage is also plentiful. The 6 GB model comes with 128 GB of storage, while the 8 GB model comes with 256 GB of storage.

If that’s not enough, there is a microSD card slot that supports up to 1 TB of additional storage!

Complete Redesigned S Pen!

Its S Pen has been completely redesigned. Like the Galaxy Note9‘s groundbreaking S Pen, it offers remote control functionality, and wireless charging capability.

It now magnetically locks to the back of the Tab S6, and  has a built-in battery that delivers 10 hours of battery life with just ten minutes of charging.
