“The Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is expected to be a mid-range variant of Samsung’s flagship tablet, and come with support for the S-Pen stylus.”
Samsung seems quite close to officially launching the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite tablet. The mid-range tablet has been rumoured for a while now, and after clearing multiple certifications, its press renders have now been shared by reliable tipster Evan Blass on Twitter. The render shows a design that is somewhat similar to the flagship Tab S6, featuring uniform bezels all around, and a single, square camera module to the top left corner of the rear. The S-Pen stylus is also seen in the post, affirming that the mid-range tablet will come with support for the stylus.
The Galaxy Tab S6 Lite has so far passed the Bluetooth SIG certification, where it was confirmed to feature Bluetooth 5.0. A subsequent appearance in the Thailand NCC database affirmed that the tablet will support dual-band Wi-Fi, but not come with LTE connectivity. It also revealed that the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite comes with a USB-C port with a standard Samsung travel adapter, as a result of which it might not come with fast charging standards. The overall design of the tablet appears to come with flat side edges, and going by the render, the large screen size with stylus support might mean that it is targeted at entertainment-priority consumers.
In terms of specifications, the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is powered by Samsung’s proprietary Exynos 9611 chipset, which is a mid-range processor that majorly powers mid-range devices such as the Galaxy A50s smartphone. It is also expected to come with 4GB of RAM, while native storage options may include 64GB and 128GB variants. So far, it is not clear as to which camera sensors are being used at either the front or the rear of the Tab S6 Lite. Even the exact display size, type of panel and screen resolution, along with the overall battery capacity, remain under wraps.
Given the frequency of the leaks pertaining to the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite, it is likely that Samsung would introduce the tablet officially in eligible markets very soon, in the coming days. As seen with the flagship Tab S6, the tablet may feature a magnetic strip at the rear to mount the stylus, and given its mid-range bearings, the Tab S6 Lite will likely rival Apple’s non-Pro iPad lineup as an alternate Android offering, once it is launched.
