Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite unveiled: 10.4" display, S-Pen support, and 7,040 mAh battery
Samsung launched the Galaxy Tab S6 last July and today the Korean tech giant followed it up with a toned down version, dubbed Galaxy Tab S6 Lite.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite flaunts a uni-body metal design and packs a 10.4" 2000x1200-pixel LCD, which is 0.1" smaller than the regular Tab S6's Super AMOLED panel of 2560x1600 pixel resolution.
The Lite version also skips the in-display fingerprint scanner present on the vanilla Tab S6.
On the inside, the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite has an octa-core processor with a maximum clock frequency of 2.3GHz. Samsung doesn't mention the chipset, but it's likely the Exynos 9611 SoC.
The Galaxy Tab S6 Lite has 4GB RAM onboard and comes in two storage options - 64GB and 128GB. The regular Tab S6, on the other hand, came with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage on the base variant, with the top-end model having 8GB RAM and 256GB storage onboard. On the upside, the Tab S6 Lite has a microSD card slot, allowing storage expansion by up to 1TB.
On the software side of things, the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite runs Android 10 with One UI 2.0 out of the box and has Dark Mode and Samsung Knox in tow. It also lets you answer calls and reply to text messages, provided you are connected to a Samsung smartphone running Android Pie or higher, with at least 3GB RAM.
The Samsung Tab S6 Lite sports an 8MP primary camera at the back and a 5MP selfie shooter on the front.
More excitingly, the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite comes with an S-Pen stylus and Samsung will also sell a Book Cover separately which clings magnetically to the slate and has a slot for the S-Pen, making it easier for you to carry it around.
The Tab S6 Lite has Bluetooth 5.0 and supports Wi-Fi and LTE connectivity. It also has the 3.5mm headphone jack and comes with AKG-tuned speakers and Dolby Atmos for a better sound experience.
Fueling the entire package is a 7,040 mAh battery which draws power through a USB-C port.
The Galaxy Tab S6 Lite has three color options - Oxford Gray, Chiffon Pink, and Angora Blue. It is currently listed on Samsung Indonesia's official site, but there are no details about its pricing and availability. However, the Indonesian branch reveals that Tab S6 Lite will come with a 4-month YouTube Premium subscription.
