Samsung introduced the Galaxy Tab S6 last year, featuring the range-topping Snapdragon 855 chipset from Qualcomm and other top-tier specs for a tablet. Today, the company introduced a cheaper version of the tablet, the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite.
One of the highlights of the Tab S6 Lite is the redesigned S Pen. Unlike the one on the regular Galaxy Tab S6, this one isn't powered by a battery, so you won't get all the Bluetooth features you'd get from that tablet. However, it does have a refreshed design that should make it more comfortable and practical to use, weighing just 7.03 grams, and it snaps magnetically to the side of the tablet. The latency and the width of the pen tip have also been improved.
The display on the Tab S6 Lite is a 10.4-inch TFT panel, and it has 2000 by 1200 pixels. It also has dual AKG speakers with stereo sound and support for Dolby Atmos, promising a good experience for entertainment. On that front, Samsung is also offering four months of YouTube Premium with the device, so you can watch YouTube without ads and use features like picture-in-picture or background listening.
The camera isn't a huge focus here, as you'd expect from a tablet, and you get an 8MP camera on the back, plus a 5MP front-facing camera. For video, you can only record in 1080p at 30 frames per second.
As for internal specs, we're looking at an Exynos 9610 octa-core chipset, with four 2.3GHz cores and four 1.7GHz cores. That's backed up by 4GB of RAM and either 64GB or 128GB of internal storage, with a microSD card slot for expansion. The battery is 7,040mAh and supports Samsung's adaptive fast charging.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite will be available in the second quarter of 2020, and it will come in Oxford Gray, Angora Blue, and Chiffon Rose. It will start at $349.99.
