Samsung Electronics released its Galaxy Tab S6 on Thursday, a device with an improved S Pen and camera.

Galaxy Tab S6 has a 10.5 Super Amoled display and a redesigned S Pen, which has functions like a remote control, with wireless charging and up to 10 hours of battery life.

S Pen Air actions, a gesture function based on the built-in BLE (Bluetooth low energy) remote control features, enable users to take selfies and videos or control the content they create at a distance from the device.

The device also features a dual ultra-wide camera on a tablet with a 5.7-millimeter (0.22-inch) thick body.

The ultra-wide camera allows users to capture a 123-degree field of view, slightly less than the human eye. The presence of a Neural Processing Unit - a microprocessor that specializes in the acceleration of machine-learning algorithms - helps users take professional photos through enhanced effects, according to Samsung.

Samsung hopes the improved functions could help users express their creativity and be productive.

“Today’s inspiration comes at a moment’s notice, and creatives and professionals need a device to be able to keep up with insatiable imaginations while complementing their busy, on-the-go lifestyles,” said Koh Dong-jin, president and CEO of the IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics. “The Galaxy Tab S6 enables consumers to unlock their creativity, while delivering the top-quality productivity features and advanced technology they have come to expect from Samsung tablets.”

The company added the on-screen fingerprint scanner and a defense-grade security platform to the tablet. Waking up the device has become more convenient, which can be done by tapping on the screen twice.

The Galaxy Tab S6 comes in three colors: mountain gray, cloud blue and rose blush.
