Samsung is one of the handfuls of Android OEMs that are still working on tablets and releasing them regularly. It launched mid-range Galaxy Tab S5e earlier this year and is rumored to be working on a flagship Galaxy Tab S4 successor for some time. It was expected to be called the Galaxy Tab S5 but as per a new Sammobile report, it will actually be called the Galaxy Tab S6.
The report includes a bunch of Galaxy Tab S6 real-life images shared by a tipster with the publication. The reasoning behind ditching the "S5" name is currently unknown, especially considering that Samsung did announce the "5e" tablet. Nevertheless, it is confirmed that the tablet will be packed with high-end flagship-level specifications.
The Galaxy Tab S6 is said to sport a 10.5-inch display with an unknown resolution but we can expect to be a 2K panel. Under the hood, it will have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor expected to be paired with at least 6GB of RAM. It is claimed to become available in 128GB and 256GB storage variants with no 64GB model this time around.
One of the highlighting features of the tablet will be dual rear cameras. This is something that is mainstream in smartphones but not anywhere close to that in tablets. The exact camera setup is unknown but the secondary sensor could be either a wide-angle/telephoto lens or a 3D ToF sensor. It will have the Bluetooth-powered S Pen stylus along with a magnetic groove for carrying it around.
Samsung is said to launch the Galaxy Tab S6 in WiFi only and LTE variants with model number SM-T860 and SM-T865 respectively. It is expected to become available in Grey, Brown, and Blue color variants. And yes, there will be a keyboard cover accessory as well. The release date for the tablet is also unknown at the moment but we will keep you updated.
