We exclusively reported over two months ago that Samsung is working on a new tablet (SM-P615) that features an S Pen. It was revealed yesterday that the tablet would be launched as the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite, all thanks to its Bluetooth certification documents. Now, we have our first look at the upcoming tablet’s design.
Staying true to its Lite tag, the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite appears to have a design similar to that of the Galaxy Tab S6 but with thicker bezels all around its 10.5-inch AMOLED screen. The tablet also comes with an S Pen, which could attach magnetically at the back of the device and charge wirelessly. There could also be an LTE variant of the device as we can see the cellular network icon on the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite’s status bar.
Galaxy Tab S6 Lite uses a mid-range Exynos processor
The tablet’s specifications were revealed last month through Geekbench’s database. The Galaxy Tab S6 Lite appears to come equipped with the Exynos 9611 processor and 4GB of RAM. It will be available in 64GB and 128GB storage variants. It would be launched with Android 10 out of the box, so it is safe to assume that it runs One UI 2.0 (or newer). The tablet also appears to have a metal body and has a black variant. The Wi-Fi only variant of the tablet carries the model number SM-P610.
The price of the Galaxy Tab S6, which is Samsung’s flagship tablet right now, is $649. So, it’s safe to assume that the South Korean smartphone giant would price the Wi-Fi only variant of the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite lower, possibly as low as $399, similar to the price of the Galaxy Tab S5e.
