Many companies have shifted their workspaces online due to ongoing pandemic. The same happened with the smartphone industry too. While some smartphone OEMs are taking their launch events online, Samsung on the other hand, quietly launched the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite without any promotions.
After the launch of Galaxy Tab 6 in July last year, Samsung has just unveiled a stripped-down version of it – Galaxy Tab S6 Lite. This was similarly designed as Tab S6, but with less impressive parts. Maybe that’s the reason to be releasing it noiselessly.
This new Tab, adding to its current product line, will be sufficient for general purposes like working. As the complete details aren’t made public yet, we cannot assure the Tablet’s integrity for heavy purposes like gaming and others. As of now, here’s what it got:
It has a unibody metal design and got a 10.4″ LCD with 2000×1200p resolution. It runs on Samsung’s OneUI 2, which is based on Android 10 OS. Further, the system is processed by an undisclosed octa-core CPU, that flaunts a maximum clock speed up to 2.3Hz. Unlike the actual Tab S6, which is powered by a Snapdragon 855 SoC, this Tab S6 Lite could probably be running an Exynos 9611 Chip within.
The Galaxy Tab S6 Lite will be available in three colorways: Oxford Gray, Chiffon Pink, and Angora Blue. The tablet has the dimensions of 244.5 x 154.3 x 7mm and it weighs 467 grams.
With respect to memory, it has 4GB RAM that comes with either 64GB ROM or 128GB ROM and has a dedicated MicroSD slot for expanding the onboard storage too. And in the imaging department, this Lite versioned Tab has a single 8-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel camera up front. There are no details regarding the aperture or pixel of these.
At last, it comes in both LTE variant and Wi-Fi variant, both having the regular connectivity features like Bluetooth 5, GPS and USB 3.1 Type-C. The entire system will be powered by a 7,040 mAh battery that supports 15W charging.

Though it ditched the in-display fingerprint sensor as in actual Tab S6, it still supports a stylus in the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite. The Galaxy S Pen coming with Tab S6 Lite can be used for drawing and editing docs with ease.
Samsung hasn’t revealed the pricing and availability details yet, and it’s reasonable to assume anything could happen only after the settlement of ongoing pandemic.
Samsung has been facing enough heat from its community due to issues arising from its flashing phone – Galaxy S20 Ultra. Users have been complaining about battery and camera issues already. What Samsung could be doing is another story we wanted to hear.
