While we had a long wait between the Galaxy Tab S2 and S3, it looks like Samsung’s now accelerating its version bumps on the tablet side of things with the Galaxy Tab S6 ready to debut soon.
According to information and renders obtained by Android Headlines, the Tab S6 will indeed launch in the back half of 2019 – they say they’re expecting to see it at Samsung’s August 7 Unpacked event, but other outlets are suggesting it might head to IFA instead.
Unsurprisingly we’re looking at a premium Android tablet with the kind of big beautiful screen for which Samsung is known. There’s a couple is interesting revelations in the renders.
Firstly, there’s an indent groove on the back where the S-Pen (which has itself been given yet another refresh) will magnetically attach to store (and charge, you’d hope, if it’s got Bluetooth connectivity on board). This is sure to make for some interesting challenges for case manufacture, and will probably stick out further than the camera just above it.
Speaking of the camera, we’re looking at a dual sensor shooter but the specs of those sensors are unclear. Tablets have a questionable track record for camera quality though, so any improvement Samsung can make here will be welcome.
And there’s a keyboard accessory too. This is pretty much par for the course on tablets these days, spelling productivity (we guess).
Finally, it looks like we’re getting some colours in the range with black, blue and pink finishes sighted in the renders.
We’re not far out from Samsung’s August 7 event where all will/won’t be revealed. It’s nice to see a leak that’s not Note-related, but that’ll surely come up later today.
