The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 finally receives Android 10 with Samsung’s One UI 2.0 included.
The update arrives as version T865XXU2BTC7 for the LTE versions available in Germany. The WiFi variant is expected to follow suit in the coming days. For users around the world, the update might need to wait a little longer.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 will receive the update notification anytime soon. Search through the Software and Updates menu inside the settings to check the update manually.
S20 features arrive through One UI
One great thing that the update brings is the arrival of Samsung’s One UI 2.0 to the tablet. It gives the Tab S6 features that were only available on the S20, such as Quick Share and Music Share.
Quick Share is Samsung’s version of Apple’s AirDrop. It allows Galaxy devices to transfer files from one device to another in just one tap. Quick Share uses Bluetooth to create a Galaxy-only private wireless connection between mobile devices. Security features include a firewall as well as data encryption.
Samsung also allows uploading files to the Samsung Cloud temporarily then stream on smart devices. This feature makes a good addition to users who are already invested in the Samsung ecosystem and own one of the company’s smart TVs.
On the other hand, say goodbye to individual Bluetooth speaker pairing as Music Share allows other people to use the Samsung device as the hub for connecting to a speaker available.
Once set up, the Tab S6 appears on the Bluetooth speakers list, and other smartphone users can just connect to the tablet to be able to play on the speaker. It is an intuitive feature that reduces the hassle of pairing several smartphones to a single Bluetooth speaker, especially if that speaker only supports a limited number of saved devices.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite leaked on a retail site
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite has been rumored for quite some time now. Finally, it was confirmed to be drawing closer to its release after retail gadget site B&H Photo put up the device on sale.
Samsung’s latest mid-range tablet retails for $350 for the 10.4″ WiFi-only version. B&H Photo’s listed the time to have a 2000 x 1200 pixel display. The processor is not revealed yet for the final retail version. It may have the Exynos 9611 or the Exynos 9610. The 9611 powers the current entry-level smartphones like the Galaxy A51 and the Galaxy M31.
B&H’s listing is still vague in regards to the details. The only takeaway, for now, is the tablet’s arrival with a glimpse of its features.
