Though the market for Android tablets has not been very kind to Samsung, the company perseveres. It has announced a high-end tablet, the US$ 650 Galaxy Tab S6. The device, which has kept the 10.5-inch Super AMOLED display (2,560 × 1,600 pixels), features a Snapdragon 855 2.84 GHz processor, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The S6 is the first Samsung tablet with an in-screen fingerprint reader and also the first to get rid of the audio jack (even Apple hasn’t ventured this on its iPads). It is equipped with two rear-facing cameras, one a 13Mpx (f/2.0) and the other a 5Mpx with a wide-angle lens (f/2.2), plus a front-facing 8MP camera. Of course, the tablet comes with an S Pen. The design choice to magnetically affix it to the back of the device is questionable. Pre-orders for the Galaxy Tab S6 begin August 23rd and the device will deliver on September 6th. An LTE-connected model will be available later.
