It appears that Samsung is going to be skipping the Galaxy Tab S5, instead jumping straight to the Galaxy Tab S6, according to both Evleaks and SamMobile. Oddly enough, Samsung actually announced a Galaxy Tab S5e earlier in the year that is currently available for purchase. That does beg the question as to where the regular Tab S5 actually went. Regardless, not only is the Galaxy Tab S6 seemingly on the way, SamMobile has even managed to grab multiple pictures of it. The photos show a magnetized dock for the S Pen, the device name, and Android Pie running on it.
According to SamMobile, we can expect to see a 10.5-inch display, with the whole device powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855. There’s no other confirmed information. SamMobile mentions a Geekbench benchmark, although those aren’t always trustworthy. SamMobile has also heard that the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 will forego a 64GB option, offering instead a 128GB option or a 256GB option. The magnetic charger on the back also suggests that the included S-Pen may have the same Bluetooth capabilities as the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. The Note 9’s S-Pen allowed users to take screenshots, skip media, and more. There are very few flagship-level tablets on the market, and by the looks of things, the Galaxy Tab S6 is going to be one of them.
The same photos also show that it will have a dual-camera setup on the back, although tablets typically have poorer cameras than smartphones anyway. We don’t know when the Galaxy Tab S6 will launch, and there have been no rumors to suggest that it may launch alongside the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 at Samsung Unpacked in August. A launch at IFA Berlin is possible, though again, nothing is confirmed. The Galaxy Tab S6 will apparently launch in three colors – Gray, Blue, and Brown – and there will be both a Wi-Fi (SM-T860) and an LTE model (SM-T865). There will also be a keyboard cover accessory, just like its predecessor.
