Recently, the model SM-T860 which is believed to be the Galaxy Tab S6 has passed NCC certification revealing its battery capacity and charging capability.
The NCC listing shows that the charger model for Galaxy Tab S6 is EP-TA200. We have found that the model EP-TA200 is Samsung’s Adaptive Fast Charger. It has the same power rating as Quick Charge 2.0 and tops out at 15W. The documents attached with NCC certificate also reveal that the Galaxy Tab S6 will be backed by a 6840 mAh battery with support for 15W (9V/1.67A) fast charging. As of now, we can’t confirm whether the battery capacity shown on the document is rated or typical.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 is equipped with a 7300 mAh battery (Typical). But, the upcoming Galaxy Tab S6’s battery capacity will be lower than its predecessor. The company may be trying to make the device thinner by sacrificing its battery capacity. Time will tell.
