The specs for the Galaxy Tab S6 show a powerhouse of a tablet that will likely handle anything you can throw at it and still be buttery smooth. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor is the same you’ll find in the Samsung Galaxy S10 family (and likely in the Note 10 as well), and the maxed-out 256GB of internal storage means you’ll probably never run out of space.

But hey, if you do, you can always add more with the microSD slot.

Unfortunately, the tablet isn’t totally perfect as it is missing a headphone jack. This is the first flagship Samsung tablet without one and should get us prepared for the Note 10 reveal, which also isn’t likely to include the beloved port.

However, Samsung does toss in a free Bluetooth-enabled S Pen with the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6. The S Pen matches the colorway of the tablet itself and snaps on magnetically to the back. This connection also allows it to wirelessly charge.

There’s also a keyboard cover available for the Tab S6, but it won’t be included with the tablet itself.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 specs are obviously high-end, and so is the starting price: an entry-level Tab S6 will set you back $650. If you want the model with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage, that price will go up. If you want the keyboard cover, too, that will cost you an additional $180.

Pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 open on August 23. You’ll be able to pick up the tablet directly from a store or online portal on September 6.
