Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is keeping the Android tablet dream alive

Samsung is still making Android tablets, and today it quietly pushed a site live for the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite, a cheaper companion to the Snapdragon 855-packing Galaxy Tab S6 it launched in 2019.

We don’t actually have official confirmation of the SoC. Samsung only calls it an “Octa-Core” SoC with frequencies of 2.3GHz and 1.7GHz. A good bet is that this is the Exynos 9611, which not only matches Samsung’s limited description—it was recently listed in a Geekbench test for the tablet. This is a 10nm chip with four 2.3Ghz Cortex A73 cores, four 1.7GHz A53 cores, and a Mali G72 MP3 GPU.

The display is a 10.4-inch, 2000×1200 LCD, a big step down from the 2560×1600 OLED panel on the Tab S6. There’s 4GB of RAM, 64GB or 128GB of storage, a 7040mAh battery, an 8MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera. There’s a microSD slot, and unlike the Tab S6, the Lite has a headphone jack. It also comes with a S-Pen stylus.

There’s no official listing for the price, but it would have to slot in somewhere under the $ 649 Galaxy Tab S6. An early B&H listing for the tablet priced it at $ 349.99, which would make sense. The tablet is a successor to the Tab S5e, which was $ 399, and the cheapest iPad is $ 329.
