Samsung Canada Unveils the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6: A New Tablet that Enhances Your Creativity and Productivity

Galaxy Tab S6 enables people to bring their ideas to life and get more done
MISSISSAUGA, ON, July 31, 2019 /CNW/ - Samsung Electronics Canada Inc. Today, Samsung Electronics Canada Inc. announced the launch of Galaxy Tab S6 – a new tablet that allows people to create and connect, enjoy immersive entertainment and accomplish their goals on-the-go. As the ultimate multi-tasking device, the Galaxy Tab S6 lets users do more.
"Many consumers today are looking for a device that can keep up with their busy, on-the-go lifestyles," said Jennifer Safruk, Vice President, Mobile Business, Samsung Canada. "Galaxy Tab S6 is perfect for users who prioritize productivity over entertainment and want to feel efficient while enjoying the highest quality features like the re-imagined S Pen and advanced technology they have come to expect from Samsung tablets." 
Redesigned S Pen Boosts Creativity and Productivity 
Samsung's signature S Pen began as an instrument for writing and drawing but it has evolved to become the ultimate creativity and productivity partner. Now with Bluetooth connectivity and wireless charging capabilities, S Pen on Galaxy Tab S6 puts more power and control in users' hands. The S Pen magnetically attaches to the back of the tablet and wirelessly charges there, delivering up to 10 hours of battery life after just 10 minutes' of charge1. With the newly added S Pen Air actions, users can control the tablet with intuitive hand gestures even when the tablet is not in their hands. There is an option to pause a video, take a group photo or manage presentations with simple gestures such as moving the S Pen down to skip to the next slide.  
Galaxy Tab S6 makes taking notes with S Pen a breeze. Handwritten Samsung Notes can be converted to digital text and exported to formats like Microsoft Word with just one click. You can also jot down quick notes or sketches while watching a video on the same screen by adjusting the Samsung Notes' window transparency—ideal for effortless multitasking.
A new-and-improved version of Samsung DeX is also packed into the Galaxy Tab S6, enabling you to seamlessly transition to a PC-like experience so you can easily multitask and optimize your display. With a DeX function key added to the Galaxy Tab S6 new dedicated Book Cover Keyboard2, you can launch and close DeX with the tap of a key. The keyboard has been fine-tuned for better functionality, including an S Pen holder, free angle stand, touch pad and new function keys.
Advanced Technology for Everyday Convenience 
Galaxy Tab S6 packs new enhancements to its camera and is Samsung's first tablet with a dual camera, featuring an Ultra Wide camera within a compact 5.7mm slim body that is both lighter and more portable than previous flagship tablets. The Ultra Wide camera allows users to capture the scenery and landscapes just as they see them with a 123-degree field of view, as wide as the human eye. Meanwhile, the Neural Processing Unit lets you take professional photos through enhanced effects to your subjects, so your photos look like they were taken by a pro.
Samsung is also bringing the on-screen Fingerprint Scanner to its tablet for the first time with Galaxy Tab S6, so that accessing your tablet is now more convenient. This ease and convenience also comes with peace of mind thanks to protection by Samsung Knox, Samsung's defense-grade security platform. Additionally, you can easily wake your Galaxy Tab S6 by tapping on the screen twice, allowing you to log in and start your day quickly.
Plus, as a part of Samsung's Galaxy Ecosystem, the Galaxy Tab S6 becomes a hub of your connected experience to manage all of your compatible smart devices with SmartThings3.
