Galaxy Tab S6: Samsung's new tablet flagship for the first time with a dual camera

As a current flagship tablet, the Samsung Galaxy S6 gets only the best hardware. This includes the Snapdragon 855 high-end SoC as well as at least 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage space. As the first tablet from Samsung, the Galaxy Tab S6 also offers a dual camera with a 13 MP resolution.

In our NBC test, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 proves itself as the currently fastest Android tablet. Responsible for this is the combination of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 high-end SoC and the Adreno 640 GPU. With this, the Galaxy Tab S6 achieves the proud result of 354,840 points in AnTuTu v7, which is almost 100,000 points more than the already very fast Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e. Also other powerful Android tablets such as the Huawei MediaPad M5 10.8 Pro (175,581 points) are unable to keep up here.

Its dual camera is also a unique feature of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6. It consists of a 13 MP ultra-wide-angle lens with a 123-degree viewing angle and a 5 MP wide-angle lens that is placed below that. With these, the tablet is able to succeed in creating portraits and closeups as well as landscape or group pictures.  In the test, the dual camera takes pictures of a decent quality in good light conditions, which offer a lot of dynamic due to their intense colors.

Samsung offers several models of the Galaxy Tab S6. Our test unit is the entry-level model with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage space, available for 749 Euros (~$834) officially. For the LTE version with the same amount of storage, you have to pay 820 Euros (~$913). Considering the quite hefty price, a small consolidation is the Samsung S Pen digital input pen, which is not an optional accessory anymore but included in the box by default.

In 1986, when I had annoyed my parents long enough, they finally bought me a C64 that I had seen at a friend's place - and immediately knew that this was what I wanted. Since then, the fascination for computers has never left me and basically I tinker with everything I can get my hands on. From the C64 to the Amiga 500 and a hugely uncool IBM computer with 8088 CPU (and green IBM monochrome monitor!) in the early 90s, the list grew longer and longer. The current projects are called PC, Tablet and Smartphone.
