Galaxy Tab S6 battery capacity is lower than its predecessor


Last updated: July 18th, 2019 at 17:30 UTC+02:00

Taiwan’s certification agency has let the Galaxy Tab S6 battery capacity slip in the device’s approval listing. We know that Samsung is due to launch a new tablet in the near future. This will be the successor to the Galaxy Tab S4.

Samsung is skipping straight to the Galaxy Tab S6 after launching a Galaxy Tab S5e earlier this year. We have already leaked the first live images of the Galaxy Tab S6 and confirmed many details about it. Samsung is expected to launch this tablet alongside the Galaxy Note 10 on August 7.

Galaxy Tab S6 battery capacity revealed

The Galaxy Tab S6 bearing model number SM-T860 has received its NCC certification in Taiwan. The documents reveal that the Galaxy Tab S6 battery capacity will be 6,840mAh battery. For those keeping count, the Galaxy Tab S4 had a 7,300mAh battery. Unfortunately, it won’t get 25W fast charging, despite being a flagship product. It sticks with 15W fast charging.

This is yet another instance of battery capacity being sacrificed to make the device thinner. Granted, internal components like the processor and RAM will be more power efficient compared to this tablet’s predecessor, so it should just about get you the same battery life. The Galaxy Tab S6 runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor with 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage on the base model.

It’s going to be a unique tablet in that the Galaxy Tab S6 has a dual camera system at the back. That’s not something we normally see on tablets. There’s also a groove at the back to which the S Pen attaches magnetically. We got a good look at that in the handful of Galaxy Tab S6 renders that were leaked yesterday.

We should get to know more about the Galaxy Tab S6 in the coming days as August 7 approaches. That’s when the Galaxy Note 10 will be unveiled in New York City.
