For a new generation, especially those who have a job in a creative field, there’s little attention paid to traditional workplace constraints. Wanderlust is at an all time high, with people traversing from place to place, moving their office along with them. This eternal search for inspiration fuels their craft.
Artist and photographer Coco Capitán, a darling amongst the fashion set, is the embodiment of this lifestyle. Hailing from a small town in Spain, her murals that are filled with impactful words and statements now cover the buildings of London, Seoul, Tokyo, Shanghai and New York.
Despite finding inspiration from the countless images and videos posted on social media, Coco Capitán often finds herself conjuring up brilliant ideas while doing the most mundane, everyday tasks. She uses the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6, a fitting device for her on-the-go lifestyle, allowing her to hold it lightly with one hand while sketching a concept that could turn into a photograph or scribbling words to be turned into a large scale painting.
In that spirit, Samsung Electronics’ new Galaxy Tab S6 is designed to function as a reliable device for creators, allowing ideas to go from the mind to digitally recorded as seamlessly as possible. It’s the brand’s latest contribution to creating a frictionless digital environment, eliminating the constraints and boundaries through easy-to-use, readily accessible functionality.
To put the convenience of the device into perspective, the Galaxy Tab S6 is exceptionally slim and light, weighing in at 420g and measuring only 5.7mm thick. The “Mountain Gray” color is applied with a cotton anodizing technique, as are a brighter tone of “Cloud Blue” and a shade of “Rose Blush,” inspired by "Living Coral." With On-Screen Fingerprint Scanner— applied for the first time in the Galaxy Tablet series — the screen is quickly, easily and securely opened.
It’s not just the appearance that has changed. With up to 81% faster CPU and up to 68% faster GPU over the Galaxy Tab S4, the technology caters to work and leisure, from heavy multitasking to ultra-high-spec games. The 2560×1600 (WQXGA) resolution super AMOLED display provides a bright and clear picture for photos and 4K images.
The utility speaks to Coco Capitán’s other creative outlet: photography. She can take an image and easily modify it using the Galaxy Tab S6 and S Pen. Though her work was introduced in a digital space, her style has an analog nostalgia: she draws with a pen, writes with a pen, and finishes all the work using her hands.
That capability comes from the "S Pen." The accessory can be lightly mounted in the area below the Galaxy Tab S6 rear camera, reducing instances of losing the pen thanks to a magnetic attachment that doubles as a charging station. What’s more, the Bluetooth function of the pen gives the Galaxy Tab S6 a variety of impressive functionality. Like the previous model, pressing its button once immediately opens up a menu that lets the user turn on live messaging or write down a new note. It’s also equipped with a remote control for shooting selfies on the Galaxy Tab S6’s new "Dual Camera with Ultra Wide camera,” which has a broader range than its predecessors.
Having been equipped with various multi-tasking functions, the Galaxy Tab S6 is designed with the goal of creating a user experience that rivals a PC-like experience. For example, when an idea pops up while watching a full-screen video, there’s no need to switch to a smaller screen. With Samsung Notes in pop-up view, users can adjust the window transparency of the app to experience multitasking by writing a note while watching a video.
Completing its versatility, the Galaxy Tab S6 is compatible with Samsung DeX. Tab S6 can run DeX mode by itself to enable a PC-like multitasking experience, while the Book Cover Keyboard furthers that experience and includes a new Function key for entering DeX mode with one click. The "free angle stand" impresses by letting the user freely adjust the angle to their wants and needs.
Recently, Coco Capitán held two successful solo exhibitions in Seoul and Paris, along with opening an exhibition in China — but her momentum shows no signs of slowing down, with exhibitions in Shanghai and Beijing on the horizon. Such events are evident of a new routine, taking pictures and preparing for shows as she travels to cities around the world. Despite a hectic, on-the-go schedule, she won’t stop creating: she’ll have the Galaxy Tab S6 right in her bag. Who knows, maybe one of her small little drawings will end up on a giant mural in another corner of the world.
