The Tab S6 is main key point is the “tablet mobility and PC power.” According to Samsung during the presentation of the tablet “Nobody’s quite cracked the nut when it comes to tablet 2-in-1 productivity.” Thus this shows how much effort has been put into the making of the tablet to enhance smooth productivity and efficiency.
The Galaxy Tab S6 is a 2-in-1 tablet that’s evenly split between tablet mode and PC mode, with the DeX you can either connect your tablet with Samsung’s sold-separately keyboard case or any Bluetooth keyboard and mouse to transform your tablet into a PC, which means It can be used exactly like a laptop computer.
The Galaxy Tab S6 features a sleek, metal unibody design. This light-weighted tablet sports a slim bezels around the 10.5-inch screen. Although, the tablet still follows closely on the design of its previous devices, however, the slim, sleek body differentiate them.

Towards the bottom, the tablet features a USB Type-C port for charging and data which is flanked by speaker grills on both sides.
This new Samsung Tablet sports a 10.5-inch Super AMOLED display (2560×1600) screen size with a 16:10 aspect ratio, the tablet, however, surpasses Apple’s tablet design with a bezel-reduced display. The bezels are much slimmer even than Samsung’s prior Android tablets, which means there’s no longer a home button. Thus, you unlock your tablet with the iris scanner integrated into the front-facing camera.
