    Amazon prematurely reveals the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite release date

    Samsung has yet to unveil the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite but the Android tablet's arrival now seems all but imminent after its apparent release date prematurely appeared on Amazon.

    Over the weekend, the device was listed on Amazon Germany where it's been promptly spotted with a €428.44 ($473) price tag, as well as an availability date of April 2nd – this Thursday. While it's possible the date in question is just a placeholder, such fillers are rarely assigned to something other than the first or last day of a given month.

    Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is Samsung's new budget tablet

    SamMobile exclusively reported on the existence of the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite way back in December, revealing Samsung has at least two models in the works: the SM-P610 and SM-P615. Based on the company's numbering practices, the latter's likely to be an LTE variant of the device.

    Its official moniker became known thanks to a Bluetooth SIG certification from late February. The Android mid-ranger finally revealed itself the following day, having appeared in a product render depicting a largely bezel-less slate with an S Pen.

    Another render showing both sides of the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite and its stylus surfaced two weeks ago. Around the same time, Samsung successfully certified the device in Taiwan and the U.S.

    Even Netflix joined in on the premature listing fun by publicly certifying the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite for HD streaming. That particular development also revealed the model numbers of every single member of the tablet line: SM-P610, SM-P610X, SM-P615, SM-P615C, SM-P615N, SM-P617, SM-P617V.

    As if that's not enough, a massive leak from last week detailed the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite in almost every respect, indicating the product will use a 10.4-inch (2,000 x 1,200) LCD screen, 4GB of RAM, and Samsung's own Exynos 9611 chipset. According to the same source, the base model will pack 64GB of storage, while some countries will receive units with twice that capacity. Every version is expected to sport a microSD card slot, a 5-megapixel front camera and an 8-megapixel module on the back (without flash). The Galaxy Tab S6 Lite should run One UI based on Android 10 out of the box, in addition to leveraging a 7,040mAh battery.

    Based on all of those accounts, it appears the upcoming tablet is meant to serve as a more budget-conscious alternative to the Galaxy Tab S6, Samsung's most powerful Android slate to date. It's hence a de facto follow-up to the Galaxy Tab S5e, even though it doesn't adhere to an identical naming scheme.
