While Samsung is yet to confirm the precise release date for the Galaxy Tab S6, Amazon may have just let it slip. In fact, the retail giant is already taking pre-orders for the new tablet in the US, with the release date being August 9. The tablet is yet to be listed on Samsung’s own e-store though.
Prices start at $650
Samsung took the wraps off the Galaxy Tab S6 on July 31. The latest Samsung flagship features a 10.5-inch WQXGA Super AMOLED display, Snapdragon 855 processor, dual rear cameras, a 7,040mAh battery with 15W fast charging, super-fast UFS 3.0 storage, and a new S Pen. The tablet comes in 6GB+128GB and 8GB+256GB memory configurations.
Samsung has confirmed that the Galaxy Tab S6 price starts at $650 in the United States but no release date has been announced. However, the new Amazon listing reveals that the tablet will be available starting August 9. Amazon is currently taking pre-orders for the Wi-Fi-only variant in Cloud Blue and Mountain Gray colors options. The base model with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage costs $649.99, whereas the 8GB RAM and 256GB storage model costs $729.99. The Tab S6 also comes in a third Rose Blush color option, but it’s not yet available for pre-order on Amazon.
