When Samsung announces the Galaxy Note 10 handsets on August 7, we are expecting the company to release a new tablet as a successor to the Galaxy Tab S4. It is expected to be called the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6
Why not the Galaxy Tab S5, you ask? Samsung has released the Galaxy Tab S5e, a budget version of its tablet line, but all the latest rumors point to the company skipping the Galaxy S5 for a Galaxy S6 designation.
We would normally take pre-release leaks with a pinch of salt, but there are so many different voices saying the same thing that makes us think Samsung will skip the Tab S5 and jump straight to the S6
Below we've compiled what we know so far about the upcoming Android tablet , as well as what we would like to see when it is officially unveiled.
Cut to the chase
- What is it? Samsung's newest high-end tablets
- When is it out? Likely early August 201
- How much will it cost? Samsung Galaxy Tab S6
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 , which are expected to launch on August 7, 2019.
When will you be able to buy them though? We would expect them to be available for purchase in the weeks following the launch event, although sometimes tablets take a little longer to become available.
We have not heard too much on pricing, however, and some of the leaks make we think that this device might be far more premium than Samsung's other devices
As such we would expect the Galaxy Tab S4's initial price of $ 650 / £ 599 (around AU $ 920) to be trumped a bit by the Tab S6 price.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 news, rumors and leaks
We have not heard that much about the Galaxy Tab S6, as we are not 100% sure Samsung will skip the S5, so there have been a few rumors around that device – but each leak provides a lot of information
For one, we I've heard that the slate will have two back cameras, which is very rare in a tablet, as the devices are not used for photography much.
We are not sure what the secondary camera is for. The tablet could have an ultra-wide or telephoto lens for wide-angle or zoomed-in pictures respectively. It can even be a Time-of-Flight sensor for accurate judging depth, which could be useful for augmented reality experiences.
