Galaxy Tab S6 shown off in every angle and color with S Pen and new design

What you need to know

  • The S Pen will reportedly now wirelessly charge in a recessed groove on the back of the tablet.
  • We're expecting to see both LTE and Wi-Fi-only models.
  • The Tab S6 will be available in at least three colors: blue, gray, and rose gold.

We saw some obfuscated leaks of Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Tab S6 a couple of weeks ago, but a scoop from Android Headlines gives us a complete collection of product renders, showing off the tablet and some of its accessories in all their glory.

We're expecting to see the Galaxy Tab S6 unveiled at Samsung's upcoming Unpacked event alongside the Note 10, or possibly a bit later on this year at IFA in Berlin, and these leaks show that we can expect three color options; blue, gray, and rose gold.

Each color extends to the accompanying S Pen stylus, which now fits into a recessed magnetic groove along the back of the tablet — which will presumably charge the S Pen wirelessly. Android Headlines also claims that the S Pen will likely be Bluetooth-compatible, much like that of the Galaxy Note 9.

There's also a new keyboard accessory for the Tab S6, which looks to be two separate pieces — one that magnetically attaches to the side of the tablet and includes the trackpad and keyboard itself, and one that attaches to the back and articulates to provide support on a tabletop.

As for the tablet itself, the design looks relatively similar to that of the Galaxy Tab S4, with the same hard edges and quad-speaker arrangement, but it trades the glass back for metal and eliminates the headphone jack.

You get dual cameras on the back now, though we're not entirely sure whether that will come in the form of a standard and wide-angle lens or a main camera aided by a time of flight sensor.

Regarding specs, previous leaks suggest a Snapdragon 855 chipset, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage as the baseline configuration. We're also expecting to see both LTE and Wi-Fi-only models, though pricing for these options is yet to be determined.

  • New design that they copied from Apple's new iPad Pro. Looks very iPad Pro'ish just like their Galaxy Tab S5e
  • If you can't beat them join them. Or copy them. Enjoying my new 5Se.
  • Who cares everyone copies everyone and improves on it with their own twist. Same with cars, mountain bikes or anything else you can think of.
  • Except this style is exactly the same as the Tab S4 which was released BEFORE the iPad pro so please just shut up about copying until you actually know what you're talking about
  • I wasn't even talking about the minimal bezels or the front of the display. I was talking how they changed up their sides and those speaker grills like that of the new iPad Pro. The sides and speakers grills don't resemble like that of the Tab S4 but now of the new iPad Pro.
  • I might be wrong but I'm pretty sure the Galaxy Tab S4 the first (I think) tablet to have limited bezels was realesed on the 1 August 2018. Whereas the new (but terrible) iPad Pro was realesed later that year on 30 October 3018. The Galaxy Tab S5e was just a succsesor of the S4 and its iconic design.
    Sorry I'm a bit of a Samsung fan boy.

  • That's fine if you are a bit of a Samsung fan. I wasn't talking about its bezels or the front of it. I was talking about its sides and speaker grills how it doesn't resemble the Tab S4 anymore but more like the new iPad Pro
  • They should of done an 8 inch version like the tab s2
  • How do I thumbs-up this comment X 1000?
  • Unfortunately that will never happen again. No one is buying small premium tablets anymore.
  • My son loves his 8 inch tab s2, i bought him the tab s3 he never uses it, its to big and heavy.
  • Nice design and the trackpad with the keyboard will make Dex much more useful.
  • If it is no larger than the S4 I'll pass.
  • Can't wait! Just bought the S4 but will be taking back and buying the S6 soon as it drops. I need a minimum of 128 gigs and the faster processor and 6 gigs of ram is a bonus.
  • Yes yes a I agree 💯 wit it
  • If all are true, I'll quit my ipad pro to S6 as soon as possible. I am using Termux and Linux on Dex with my note9 now. The only trouble is the screen size. On the other hand, I paid a pro price for my iPad pro, but can only watch video on it in most of cases... From beginning I bring it everyday. Now it is just a high end video player with its perfect screen and amazing SoC in my home. The command line tools, texlive, File manager, mouse support and multi-windows on Android are really helpful for the daily work.
  • the iPadOS supports mouse support, have a file manager and can do multi window though???????
  • Not true about the mouse support. At least not "real" mouse support. Everything else you said is correct.
  • So glad the glass is gone. The S4 was so slippery I had to put mine in a case to keep it from sliding off my lap when I used it.
  • Why oh why don't they let me store my s-pen inside the Tab? If they can engineer it into the significantly smaller note, it ought to be easy. The pictures are NOT from every angle, as they don't show how much the s-pen sticks out. Besides which, how does that work with a case on it for protection?
