The Galaxy Tab S6 has gone official as the sixth tablet in Samsung’s AMOLED-toting Galaxy Tab S lineup. The Tab S6 is the fifth flagship-tablet in the series and comes with plenty of upgrades to entice Galaxy Tab S4 owners to make the switch. The new S Pen can be used as a remote control thanks to the built-in Bluetooth and also offers some nifty air gestures. There’s a more powerful processor under the hood, more storage out of the box, an optical in-fingerprint sensor, and even a dual rear camera setup for those who take photography on their tablet seriously.

Some things have carried forward unchanged as well, like that beautiful 10.5-inch Super AMOLED display and four AKG-tuned loudspeakers with Dolby Atmos. If you’re wondering exactly how the specs compare on the Galaxy Tab S4 and Galaxy Tab S6, we’ve laid them out in a clean and simple table down below. Don’t forget to check out our devices section for more details on these tablets and our hands-on impressions of the Galaxy Tab S6. Also look forward to our Galaxy Tab S6 review in the coming weeks.
