Samsung Galaxy Tab S6

Samsung has announced the Galaxy Tab S6, its latest multi-talented, S Pen-totting tablet that brings the fight to the Apple iPad Air. Designed for ultimate creativity and productivity, the new tablet is also the first tablet to boast a dual-camera system and an on-screen fingerprint scanner.

Here are 10 key things that make the Galaxy Tab S6 awesome.

#1 New S Pen

The Galaxy Tab S6 features a redesigned S Pen that’s great for writing and drawing. With built-in BLE, the new S Pen has remote control functionality including a gesture function called S Pen Air actions. It lets you take selfies and videos, or control multimedia content by using the S Pen. Additionally, the famous stylus features wireless charging that can deliver up to 10 hours of battery life, with just 10 minutes of charge time.

What’s interesting is that the Tab now has a magnetic strip on the back where the S Pen can attach to it to store and charge. Unusual!

#2 New Samsung DeX

An improved version of Samsung DeX is built into the Galaxy Tab S6, giving you an instant and seamless transition to a PC desktop-like experience. The tablet’s new dedicated Book Cover Keyboard has a DeX function key that can launch DeX with a tap. I’m a huge fan of DeX, and this is certainly a plus.
