Samsung might not have its Lite category only for affordable variants of its Galaxy flagships. According to a report by Android Headlines, the South Korean technology giant is preparing to release a new Lite tablet, which is expected to be called the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite.
The tablet is a cut-down version of last year’s premium device, and we have an image of it. It also features the same redesigned S Pen. Even though there’s no confirmation yet on whether this tablet will pack support for wireless charging for the S Pen, it is actually very probable it will. Because this is a thicker S Pen than what the Galaxy Note lineup has, it means it can fit in a silo inside the device. Therefore, wireless charging is a must.
The new device will allegedly resemble the original Galaxy Tab S6 when it comes to shape and most likely size as well, but will be powered by an Exynos 9611 chipset – similar to a Snapdragon 600 series in the United States – which makes the tablet a mid-range device.
A Very ‘Lite’ Model
Exynos 9611 is a very competent processor but is not the best available. The tables will reportedly also come with 4GB of RAM and probably 64GB or 128GB of storage space. The storage will likely be different as it will depend on the country that’s being sold in.
The Galaxy S6 Lite will be even cheaper than a regular tablet. Because the Galaxy Tab S6’s price was $649, it would be totally reasonable for the upcoming device to be priced around $399 or even less.
The tablet will also run Android 10 out of the box, and the One UI 2.1, most probably, which launched on the Galaxy S20 in February of this year. There’s no information yet regarding the display, but it will most definitely be similar to the regular Galaxy Tab S6.
