Apart from the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+, Samsung also launched its newest tablet for the Philippine market, the Galaxy Tab S6.
The Galaxy Tab S6 allows people to create and connect, as well as enjoy immersive entertainment on the go. Equipped with a ton of new features and powerful hardware, it allows users to do so much more on any previous tablet.
Redesigned S Pen
Samsung equipped the S-Pen on the Tab S6 with the same new features as the one on the Note 10 series. That means you get built-in BLE, wireless charging, and remote control features like Air Actions for performing certain in-app actions. It also has the same longevity – up to 10 hours of battery life.
Handwritten Samsung Notes can easily be converted into digital text, which can then be shared via SMS or email or exported to various formats including Microsoft Word. You can also adjust the window transpaprency, which is useful when jotting down notes while watching a video, perfect for seamless multitasking.
Tab S6 also comes with a new and improved version of Samsung DeX, which enables you to seamlessly transition into a PC-Like experience. The new Book Cover Keyboard also has a dedicated DeX key, which launches and closes DeX with a single tap. The keyboard has been fine-tuned for improved functionality. There’s also an S Pen holder, a free angle stand, a touch pad, and new function keys.
The Tab S6 is equipped with a dual camera system, which includes an ultra wide lens for better coverage. Its Neural Processing Unit also allows you to take professional looking photos.
The device also packs an on-screen fingerprint scanner, allowing for a more convenient way of accessing the tablet. It’s further protected by Samsung Knox. Waking the device is as easy as double tapping on the screen.
Being part of the Galaxy Ecosystem, the Galaxy Tab S6 can serve as a hub for managing your appliances with SmartThings. Add Bixby, and you’ll easily be able to control your devices using voice commands.
It also enables high-quality gaming through a combination of graphics, sounds, and intelligent hardware and software, backed by partnerships with leading game platforms such as Unity and Unreal Engine.
Equipped with a powerful processor and Game Booster with AI capabilities, the Galaxy Tab S6 can deliver enhanced gaming experience through optimized FPS, screen lag, loading time, and more. Thanks to a partnership with Discord, you’ll also have access to the new live chat feature via Game Launcher, allowing for some strategizing with your teammates throughout the game.
