When it comes to the tablet market, Apple gets the bulk of the attention (and market share) with its iPad family. While numerous Android OEMs have simply given up on the form-factor in favor of large-screen smartphones, Samsung remains a staunch support of dedicated tablets.

After launching the Galaxy Tab S5e earlier this year, Samsung’s upcoming entry into the fray is the Galaxy Tab S6. Real life shots of the tablet have been spied, and it shows a device with a 10.5-inch display and dual cameras on the rear (something that isn't yet the norm for a tablet, but quite common on smartphones).

Powering the tablet will be Qualcomm's potent Snapdragon 855 SoC paired with 6GB of RAM. According to SamMobile, the device will be available in two storage configurations: 128GB and 256GB. Other features reportedly on deck include an S Pen stylus, which will be similar in functionality to the second-generation Apple Pencil in that it will attach magnetically to the chassis to charge.

The report also suggests that the tablet will carry the designations SM-T860 (Wi-Fi) and SM-T865 (LTE), and it will be offered in Blue, Brown and Grey. A separate report from 91Mobile indicates that the Galaxy Tab S6 will be the first tablet to ship with an under-the-display fingerprint sensor, which extends Samsung's use of the technology that appeared in devices like the Galaxy S10 family earlier this year.

At this point, we don't have an official launch date for the Galaxy Tab S6, but there's a good chance that it might be revealed alongside the Galaxy Note 10 next month in NYC.
