Galaxy Tab S6

Hong Kong – August 15, 2019 – Samsung Electronics H.K. Co. Ltd. today announced the launch of Galaxy Tab S6, the first tablet featuring multiple brand-new features. Flagship-grade capabilities, together with an upgraded S Pen, enrich users’ mobile experience, enabling them to express their ideas freely and get more done. Galaxy Tab S6 delivers unparalleled gaming experience with its flagship standard processor which supports up to 8GB RAM, while the massive 7,040mAh battery and Game Booster also allow users to focus on the game without worrying about recharging the device. 

“Samsung values consumers’ various demands on mobile products and we are dedicated to continuously developing mobile devices with both design and functions. With Galaxy Tab S6, we hope to unlock users’ creativity by capturing their fleeting thoughts throughout the day. As the ultimate partner for both work and leisure, it offers a perfect work experience as well as undisturbed entertainment,” said Ms. Yiyin Zhao, Managing Director of Samsung Electronics H.K. Co. Ltd.

 

Flagship-Grade Capabilities for Optimized Entertainment Experience

Galaxy Tab S6 is built to let users enjoy unmatched gaming experience through a combination of graphics, sounds, engines and software tools. As the first Android tablet packed with as much as 8GB RAM, Galaxy Tab S6 is equipped with Snapdragon 855 flagship processor with faster CPU and GPU, delivering a smooth gaming experience. 

The 5.7mm-slim Galaxy Tab S6 weighs only 420g, making it lightweight and portable to seamlessly complement users’ on-the-go lifestyle and allow them to enjoy all kinds of entertainment. Galaxy Tab S6 has an elegantly designed metal uni-body to manifest the delicate metal touch; it also features a uniquely stylish grey exterior. 

Galaxy Tab S6 is equipped with a built-in massive 7,040mAh battery, supporting video playback up to 15 hours. Featuring a 10.5” Super AMOLED display and a nearly bezel-less design of 8.45mm, Galaxy Tab S6’s 84.8% screen-to-body ratio offers an amazing viewing experience. Paired with quad speakers sound by AKG and Dolby Atmos®, users can now indulge in richer immersive sound while enjoying their favorite multimedia content, even without earphones. 

For the first time ever, Samsung has partnered with Unity and Unreal Engine to optimize the FPS, reduce screen lag and loading time so as to quickly immerse users in the gaming world. Thanks to the AI-based Game Booster that monitors and visualizes performance level, FPS and battery life, the gaming experience is smoother, faster and more fun.

Redesigned S Pen Unlocks New Possibilities

The S Pen on Galaxy Tab S6 puts even more power and control in users’ hands. Samsung introduced the all-new Air Actions, underpinned by built-in BLE remote control. The feature allows users to remotely control the tablet’s camera; users can change the camera modes, zoom-in and zoom-out just by waving different gestures with S Pen[1]. Likewise, users can also use Air Actions to control multimedia content on their devices such as switching between songs. 

Galaxy Tab S6 comes with a new design – users can now recharge their S Pen by magnetically attaching them to the holder at the rear side of their device. The wireless charging function delivers up to 11 hours of battery life with just ten minutes’ charge time[2]. 

The fine-tuned signature S Pen has evolved to become the ultimate creativity and productivity partner. With the refined design, it provides users with a real pen-like and amazing writing experience while remaining lightweight and comfortable to the grip. 

Galaxy Tab S6 makes taking notes with S Pen a breeze. Handwritten Samsung Notes can be converted into digital text and exported to formats such as Microsoft Word with just one click. Together with the unique Air Command feature of S Pen, users can also jot down quick notes or sketches while watching a video on the same screen by adjusting the window transparency of Samsung Notes – making Galaxy Tab S6 perfect for effortless multitasking.

 

Groundbreaking Dual Camera Creates Brand-New Tablet Experience

Galaxy Tab S6 features Samsung’s first dual camera on a tablet with a 13MP main camera. Together with Ultra Wide Lens which provides a 123-degree field of view – as wide as the human eye – users can capture the scenery as they see it and record life’s every moment. 

The Scene Optimizer automatically recognizes up to 30 kinds of scenes, including flower, person, food, sunset or sunrise, animals and more; it can also optimize the saturation, white balance and brightness of photos. Meanwhile, Tone Mapping accurately analyzes each part of the scene, brightens dark areas and improves the clarity of bright areas for a well-lit and professional shot.

 

Enhanced DeX Mode for Perfect Multitasking

With Samsung DeX mode, users can watch all kinds of multimedia content on the full display screen[3], turn Galaxy Tab S6 into a drawing pad or keyboard, and switch between content in different applications seamlessly. The new interface of DeX is wider and easier to use, making it simpler to switch on and off. Coupled with DeX Air Command, it brings better functionality and convenience for work. 

Galaxy Tab S6’s dedicated Book Cover Leather Keyboard features a magnetic S Pen holder, touch pad and free angle stand, allowing users to prop up the tablet at a variety of angles. Together with the newly added DeX function key, an unprecedented mobile working experience can be enjoyed. 

To support multitasking, Galaxy Tab S6 is equipped with Multi Window mode that lets users launch another application quickly, either in split-screen or pop-up view.

 

Advanced Technology for Everyday Convenience

Samsung is also bringing its in-display Fingerprint Scanner to a tablet for the first time with Galaxy Tab S6. Users can place their fingers either on the scanner, or by tapping on the screen twice to wake up the device easily. The Fingerprint Scanner works well regardless of portrait or landscape mode, making access to tablet more convenient than ever. 

As a part of Samsung’s Galaxy Ecosystem, the Galaxy Tab S6 can seamlessly connect and sync with other Samsung products just by logging into a single Samsung account. Users will never miss a call and can directly reply to a message straight from the Galaxy Tab S6, even if their phone is out of reach. Along with the built-in Bixby, Samsung’s virtual assistant, users can ask Bixby to play music of their choice or control smart home devices via voice commands[4]

Placing Galaxy Tab S6 on the POGO Charging Dock can turn it into a Daily Board, then use the new feature Memo Board and S Pen to write messages, Using Music Board, users can play their favorite songs or even display information such as time and weather when needed.
