Further, there various new features such as S-Pen functionality, better display, improved performance and more. Read ahead to find out more about Galaxy Tab S6 from Samsung.
Galaxy Tab S6: New Features
As the Galaxy Tab S6 is located on top of the S5e and will compete with Apple’s iPad Pro 10.5, South Korea’s top tablet will receive an S-Pen that will be paired using Bluetooth 5.0 LE. The touch pen can be used as a kind of remote control, just like the Galaxy Note 9. This remote function is certainly practical for presentations, but also for daily use as a remote play / pause control for multimedia content or even as a trigger Remote for cameras. Also practical: Samsung has now provided a place on the back of the Galaxy Tab S6 for the S-Pen, where it is not only magnetically maintained, but also charged wirelessly.
If the S-Pen runs out of power, the supercapacitor inside the touch pen will be ready for use in 10 minutes for 11 hours. This is the pure waiting time, not the shelf life. How long will this be, one would still have to find out in a detailed test.
For the first time on a Samsung Tablet, there are two main cameras. While the normal camera records photos with 13 megapixels, the second camera takes photos with 5 megapixels with a field of view of 123 degrees. Therefore, those who like to go on a photographic safari with a tablet can now take wide-angle photos with the help of the second camera.
A tablet makes gaming easier, especially in games where a large field of vision is important. For players who like to talk and chat with their teammates at the same time, it is difficult to keep in touch with Android resources on board. Samsung has announced a partnership for the Galaxy Tab S6 with Discord , a communication application commonly used by players, and integrates Discord more deeply into the game launcher. Users of an S6 tab can stay in the game and continue chatting with your friends through Discord.
