After launching the 5G variant of its 2019-launched Samsung Galaxy Tab 6, the Korean tech giant Samsung has now launched a toned-down version, dubbed Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite, of its iPad competitor.
The slate is pretty much like its older sibling, spare a few tweaks here and there. Let’s take a look.
Design and Display
The tablet has the same design profile as the 10.5-inch vanilla Samsung Galaxy Tab S6. However, the light version is built around a 10.4-inch LCD with 2000 x 1200 pixels resolution, which is 0.1” smaller than the regular Tab S6’s display, practically an imperceptible change. The tablet does not come with an in-display sensor, unlike its older sibling.
It is available in three color options: Oxford Gray, Chiffon Pink, and Angora Blue.
Internals and Storage
Internally, the slate is powered by an octa-core processor with a maximum clock frequency of 2.3GHz, which, most likely, is the Exynos 9611 SoC, although Samsung has not yet confirmed it.
The SoC is topped with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB or 128 GB onboard storage. The tablet also comes with an S-Pen stylus and supports Wi-Fi and LTE connectivity. It is equipped with Bluetooth 5.0 and AKG-tuned speakers.
On the software front, it runs on Android 10 with One UI 2.0 out of the box.
Just like all the other tablets, the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite does not boast any impressive camera specifications, not that you’d need them. It comes with an 8 MP single camera on the back and a 5 MP snapper on the front.
Battery and Pricing
That tablet packs a 7040 mAh battery backed by 15W fast charging.
The pricing and availability details are not known yet.
