All eyes are on Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10 launch on August 7, but it looks like the company might also be revealing a new premium tablet at the event.
Android Headlines has posted renders that apparently show the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6, adding that the device is set to launch alongside the Galaxy Note 10 series.
The renders show a tablet with several interesting design choices, starting with a groove on the rear of the device to hold an S-Pen. It’s unclear whether the stylus is Bluetooth-enabled and can be charged via this slot, or if we’re looking at a more traditional S-Pen that doesn’t need charging. For what it’s worth, SamMobile has previously reported that this slot will be for charging.
Another interesting choice on this tablet is the decision to add a dual rear camera setup. There’s no solid information regarding camera specs, but it’s suggested that the second shooter could either be an ultra-wide snapper or a 3D ToF camera.
The renders also show an optional keyboard case for the upcoming tablet, much like previous premium Galaxy slates. The keyboard case usually enables DeX mode on high-end Samsung tablets, so we’d expect DeX on the new device too.
Samsung patent shows what could be a better alternative to foldable phones
LetsGoDigital has unearthed a Samsung patent that shows …
The apparent Galaxy Tab S6 renders don’t seem to show a 3.5mm port though. This suggests a wider move on Samsung’s part, as the Galaxy Tab S5e and Galaxy A80 lack the feature. Galaxy Note 10 leaks don’t show the audio port either, so it looks like you’ll need to ready your dongle or switch to Bluetooth come August 7.
Another feature that doesn’t seem visible here is a fingerprint scanner (although the Galaxy Tab S5e embeds it in the power button). It’s suggested that Samsung could be offering an in-display fingerprint sensor instead.
Core specs for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 weren’t revealed in this latest leak, but SamMobile‘s earlier leak touted a Snapdragon 855 processor, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB or 256GB of storage. Would you buy a high-end Android tablet? Let us know in the comments section below!
