Samsung unveiled its new tablet, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6, a high-end device that replaces the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4. In between, the South Korean company introduced the Samsung Galaxy S5e last February. How do the three devices differ?

With the same design and the same screen and almost dimensions, the most noticeable difference between the three tablets comes in the photographic section. So, while Galaxy Tab S4 and Galaxy Tab S5e arrived with only one camera on the back, Tab S6 goes up to mount two sensors. But let’s see all the specifications in the datasheet.

Same screen and greater commitment to photography
Samsung is committed to maintaining the same screen for its high-end tablets and if in the Galaxy Tab S4 we saw a 10.5-inch Super AMOLED panel with WQXGA resolution (1,600 x 2,560 pixels) that remained in the Galaxy Tab S5e, now It is also repeated on the Galaxy Tab S6.

At the design level, we find few novelties between the Galaxy Tab S6 and the Tab S5e, especially in terms of weight and size: 244.5 x 159.5 x 5.7 mm and 420 g for the first, compared to 244, 5 x 159.5 x 5.7 mm and the 400 g of the second. Some figures that do move away from Tab S4, which came with 249.3 x 164.3 x 7.1 mm and 483 g.

In addition, if we look at the back, we can verify that the Galaxy Tab S6 keeps the cameras on one side just like the Tab S5e , differentiating itself from the Galaxy Tab S4 that carried it in a module in the center.

Where we do find an interesting evolution is in the photographic section. Thus, if the two previous tablets arrived with a single lens on the back, the Galaxy Tab S6 does so with two sensors. Thus, in both the Galaxy Tab S4 and the Galaxy Tab S5e, we found a 13 MP rear camera and an 8 MP front camera. The Galaxy Tab S6 climbs a small step to mount two 13 and 5 MP lenses, while the front stays at 8 MP.

The fingerprint sensor is moved to the front
Samsung’s latest device lands with the Snapdragon 855 processor which, may vary according to the market. Therefore, after seeing the Snapdragon 835 on Tab S4 and the Snapdragon 670 on Tab S5e.

We also see how RAM memory and internal capacity have grown with each new device. So, if Tab S4 appeared with 4 GB of RAM and 64 or 256 GB of memory; Galaxy Tab S5e did the same with 4 or 6 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of internal memory. Finally, the Galaxy Tab S6 has made its appearance with 6 or 8 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of capacity.

Also interesting is the arrival of the fingerprint sensor to the screen, which Samsung released in the Galaxy S10 last February and that more and more manufacturers include in the front of their phones, although it is not so common in the case of tablets. In the Galaxy Tab S5e the fingerprint reader was located on the side of the device, while in the Tab S4 was replaced by iris recognition.

Four AKG speakers and Dolby Atmos
In terms of sound, Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 landed with four AKG speakers and Dolby Atmos surround sound, a bet the company repeated on Galaxy Tab S5e and also on Galaxy Tab S6.

The company continues betting on the Tab S6 for Dex to be able to use it as a desktop, something that we saw in its predecessors. In addition, it returns the S-Pen that we did see in Tab S4 while Tab S5e arrived without support for Samsung’s stylus.

Price comparison
What about prices? The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 starts from $650, but the 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage version is $730. The Tab S4 started at $650 in its most basic configuration, while the Tab S5e started at $400.
