Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 is the main Android tablet flagship right now and it debuted at the end of July. Today we learn one more reason to get it: it’s the first HDR10+ certified tablet and possibly the only one with this feature.
The device has several other premieres, like the Snapdragon 855 CPU inside, plus a metal body this time in lieu of the glass back predecessor (Tab S4). Year after year Samsung received the DisplayMate certifications and awards for the Galaxy S and Note models, but tablets, not so much. Now a model finally stands out and the HDR10+ certification means that we get a wider color range and improved contrast.
The difference between regular HDR10 and HDR10+ is that the latter has dynamic tone mapping for each scene. It also continuously fine tune settings as the content plays. The HDR10 is static and this is more dynamic, with richer colors, better shadow and light details. Galaxy S10 was the first device to receive HDR10+ certification this year and the trend is continued by the Note 10.
The Tab S6 also brings a new approach to stylus integration, via magnets at the back, plus 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. The product hits shops in September, priced at around $649.
