The leaked boot screen picture coming from SamMobile suggests that Samsung will be skipping the S5 denomination and go straight to S6. Additional unboxing pictures show that the Galaxy Tab S6 is the first Samsung tablet to feature a rear dual-cam setup and it looks like the Stylus is getting a groove with magnetic recharger.

The popularity of tablets has been steadily waning in the past several years, as smartphones now come with increasingly larger screens. Apple is the only company that still thinks tablets are still worth it, since it included its most powerful SoC in last year’s iPad Pro. Samsung, on the other hand, keeps pushing mid-range and entry-level Galaxy Tab models that are not really justifying their prices. Earlier this year, the Galaxy Tab S5e was launched as a premium mid-ranger, suggesting that the company could also launch a flagship S5 later on. According to the latest leaked info coming from SamMobile, this dose not appear to be the case anymore, as Samsung is ready to skip the ‘fifth” iteration altogether.

Sources close to SamMobile provided a boot screen picture that confirms the name of the upcoming flagship Samsung tablet is indeed Galaxy Tab S6. The anonymous leakers also included a picture of the tablet’s back, which reveals the first dual-cam setup to ever be featured on a Samsung tablet. SamMobile suggests that the second camera could be a ToF sensor for real-time 3D tracking applications. Additionally, there looks to be a groove where the Bluetooth-enabled stylus can be magnetically attached for recharging.

As far as specs go, the new Tab S6 is rumored to get a 10.5-inch screen with thinner bezels, a Snapdragon 855 SoC coupled with 6 GB of RAM and 128 / 256 GB of storage, plus a keyboard cover accessory, and color options including grey, blue and brown. It also runs Android 9.0 out-of-the-box.

Since the Galaxy Tab S4 was revealed on August 1 last year, there is a fair chance the new S6 could be announced around the same date this year, as well. The Galaxy Note 10 is expected to get the official reveal on August 7, so Samsung may opt to cram the Tab S6 announcement on that day. Alternatively, the new flagship tablet could be revealed at IFA Berlin in September.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
