SINGAPORE – August 8, 2019 – Samsung Electronics Singapore today announced the Galaxy Tab S6 – a new tablet that allows users to create and connect, enjoy immersive entertainment, and accomplish their goals wherever they go. Built for those who need to satisfy their curiosity and express their creative flair, the Galaxy Tab S6 lets users stay productive and keep track of their ideas on the go.
"These days, ideas and inspiration can be found in the most unexpected places. Consumers need a device that will support their busy lifestyles and allow them to create, connect and enjoy immersive entertainment on the go," said Sarah Chua, Vice President, IT & Mobile, Samsung Electronics Singapore. "The Galaxy Tab S6 delivers next-level innovative features and technology that gives users the freedom to express creativity where their imagination takes them."
Redesigned S Pen Boosts Creativity and Productivity
Samsung’s signature S Pen began as an instrument for writing and drawing, but it has evolved to become the ultimate creativity and productivity partner. Now with remote control functionality and wireless charging capabilities, the S Pen on the Galaxy Tab S6 puts even more power and control in users’ hands. With built-in BLE remote control features1 including a gesture function called S Pen Air actions2, the S Pen allows users to intuitively take selfies and videos, or control the multimedia content users create even when the tablet is not in their hands.
The Galaxy Tab S6 makes taking notes with the S Pen a breeze. Handwritten Samsung Notes can be converted to digital text and exported to formats like Microsoft Word with just one click3. Users can also jot down quick notes or sketches while watching a video on the same screen by adjusting the Samsung Notes’ window transparency—perfect for effortless multitasking.
A new-and-improved version of Samsung DeX4 is also packed into the Galaxy Tab S6, enabling users to seamlessly transition to a PC-like experience5 so they can easily multitask and optimize their viewing experience. With a DeX function key added to the Galaxy Tab S6’s new dedicated Book Cover Keyboard6, users can launch and close DeX with the tap of a key. The keyboard has been fine-tuned for better functionality, including an S Pen holder, free angle stand, touch pad and new function keys.
Advanced Technology for Everyday Convenience
Galaxy Tab S6 packs new enhancements to its camera, including Samsung’s first dual camera with Ultra Wide camera on a tablet, within a compact 5.7mm slim body that is both lighter and more portable. The Ultra Wide camera allows users to capture the scenery and landscapes just as they see them with a 123-degree field of view, as wide as the human eye. Meanwhile, the Neural Processing Unit allows users to take professional photos through enhanced effects to their subjects, so photos will look like they were taken by a pro.
Samsung is also bringing the on-screen Fingerprint Scanner to its tablet for the first time with Galaxy Tab S6, so that accessing the tablet is more convenient than ever. This ease and convenience is further protected by Samsung Knox, Samsung’s defence-grade security platform7. Additionally, users can easily wake their Galaxy Tab S6 by tapping on the screen twice, allowing users to log in and start their day quickly.
As part of the Samsung Galaxy Ecosystem, the Galaxy Tab S6 becomes a hub of a connected experience that allows users to manage their appliances with SmartThings8. Together with Bixby9, users can easily control their devices via voice commands.
Whether users are enjoying a new game or binge-watching their favourite TV show, the Galaxy Tab S6 delivers an amazing viewing experience. Its 10.5" Super AMOLED display, paired with quad speakers sound by AKG and Dolby Atmos®, keeps users immersed in the action.
The Galaxy Tab S6 enables high-quality, captivating gaming through a combination of graphics, sounds, and intelligent hardware and software, bolstered by partnerships with leading game platforms such as Unity and Unreal Engine.
