The Galaxy Note 10 isn't the only premium device that Samsung launched within the past 30 days. Paving the way for the phablet and also prefiguring one feature, the Galaxy Tab S6 finally offered a premium tablet option for Samsung and Android users who may have been getting some iPad Pro envy lately. Unsurprisingly, the Galaxy Note 10 was the first one to actually reach stores but now the Galaxy Tab S6 is close behind and has a few freebies to soften the blow of the price.

Not that the Galaxy Tab S6 is that expensive compared to the Galaxy Note 10. We've come to a rather amusing point where pocket-sized phones are twice the price of large slates. On paper, the Galaxy Tab S6 costs $649.99 for the 128 GB model and $729.99 for 256 GB of storage.

Naturally, Samsung is throwing in a few promos to sweeten the deal. Pre-ordering the Galaxy Tab S6 now will also come with a four-month YouTube Premium subscription, normally a $12 per month deal. That, however, is only applicable to US buyers.

Something that may be available to buyers outside the US is the 50% discount on a Galaxy Tab S6 Book Cover Keyboard which normally costs $180. The catch is that you have to make that purchase upon checking out the tablet and the offer only lasts until September 5, 2019 at 11:59:59 PM ET. That's because the tablet will fully launch on September 6.

The Galaxy Tab S6 is easily the most premium Android tablet around in terms of features and price. Thankfully, it has finally caught up with hardware found on smartphones but even throws in a second wide-angle camera, just like smartphones. The new S Pen and its home groove, however, are a bit debatable but those who have been drooling over the tablet can now put a pre-order on Samsung or from Amazon to be one of the first to get their hands on one.
