Galaxy Tab S6 US release set for August 9, Amazon taking pre-orders

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.

The Galaxy Tab S6 is a feature-packed slate with a lot of promise. You can check out our hands-on for early impressions. We’ll have a full review up in the next few weeks. Meanwhile, if you aren’t really looking for a powerful tablet, the Galaxy Tab S5e (review) is now available for as low as $279.99.

I have brought 2 version samsung tablet with the original casing and accessaories, and both last only 2years of life time of normal usage, then it will shutdown the by itself and all the way till the mainboard is death. Send to the service centre, it qoute very high price for out of warrantly repair! With no choice has to throw away everythings. Samsung alway produce great tablet, hence if you need to buy their tablet, don’t waste money on the original accessories or protection, it only last you 2 yrs of usage only…

At least we get a choice of variants this time in the UK. We didn’t get the 6GB Tab S4.
Also, it specifically mentions that the Blue is not being sold in the UK! 😂 Not sure if that means it’s potentially going to a carrier exclusive or its outright banned in the UK!
Rose Blush and Grey Mountain are shown. Still no official UK price yet… 😒 “Not for Sale” it says. Lol
