Well, on this occasion the Gadgets Squad did not discuss the matter of competing products, on the contrary here will be reviewed at length on the Galaxy Tab S6 tablet. So, please listen.

The design

As already revealed, in terms of price, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 tablet is arguably not cheap. Fortunately, this seems to pay off if we look at the designs offered by Samsung for this flagship tablet.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 is packed with a 10.5 inch screen. Interestingly, this tablet screen has adopted an elongated ratio like the recent smartphone trend. Instead of looking boxed, with a 16:10 screen ratio, the Galaxy Tab S6 actually looks wide and elongated. While the thin bezel that surrounds the tablet screen, seems to have the same size.

For the material used, this tablet has used metal as a sanitary pad. This makes the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 very comfortable to hold, and of course the impression of luxury is also felt.

This port is also useful for recharging tablet batteries and connecting to other devices, such as PCs, USB Type C ports on the Galaxy Tab S6 can also be used as a connection for users to listen to audio content through a headset. This is because the Galaxy Tab S6 is not accompanied by a 3.5 mm audio port, so the function is like being directly transferred to USB Type C. For the same thing, we can also use the default Galaxy Tab S6 speaker produced by AKG to listen to audio content, which is interesting again already supported by Dolby Atmos technology. Four speakers in the Galaxy Tab S6 are in each corner.

Please note, in addition to tablet mode, Galaxy Tab S6 also offers what he calls the DeX mode. With this mode, users are allowed to enjoy the tablet's appearance like using a PC or desktop. While the 10.5-inch screen stretch also makes it fit for use as a laptop. This can be done, just plug it in with the Book Cover Keyboard accessory. Be this tablet like a portable mini nan portable and easy to carry.

Unfortunately, Book Cover Keyboard is not available in the Galaxy Tab S6 sales package. To get the official Galaxy Tab S6 accessor, users are required to spend an additional $ 1.5 million to make up for it.

If to get the Book Cover Keyboard we have to buy it separately, not so with the S-Pen. Bluetooth Low Energy technology stylus is already available in the sales package. S-Pen can be used like we hold a pencil or pen, of course with a number of features offered. There are also buttons on the S Pen, with which we can add certain functions to it.


Although not too much of a spotlight, it turns out that the presence of a camera on a tablet seems to still be available. Likewise in the Galaxy Tab S6, even though this device is not exactly small, it's still for users who like to take pictures, there is a camera to accommodate it.

To record video, the viewfinder available on the back of the device is capable of taking moving pictures with a resolution of 2160p @ 30fps. For the front camera, video recording can also reach 1080p @ 30fps resolution.

Power Bang

In the case of a bang, Samsung doesn't seem to want to compromise. As if to provide guarantees to always be used for a variety of activities, this tablet is supported by top hardware specifications.

Sold at a price of almost Rp. 12 million, in its specifications sheet this tablet is supported with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset made with a 7nm manufacturing process. The configuration of this chipset consists of Octa-core (1 × 2.84 GHz Kryo 485 & 3 × 2.42 GHz Kryo 485 & 4 × 1.78 GHz Kryo 485) in tandem with the Adreno 640 graphics processor.

In addition to capable processor support, this tablet is also packed with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory. So, for performance, this tablet can not be doubted. User activities, ranging from the standard or heavy, can be run smoothly without any interference.

Another thing that is no less interesting and important also in a device is the power supply sector. Luckily, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 has a 7040 mAh battery.
