In truth, if leaks are to be considered it each sporting activities a identical design and style and comes packing a stylus, which could give it a raise over other budget slates.

Under you’ll locate every little thing we have listened to about the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite so much, along with a would like listing of things that we want from it. 

We’ll also be updating this report as quickly as we listen to nearly anything new, so make guaranteed to keep examining again if you are interested in Samsung’s following slate.

Update: The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite has been outlined on an on-line store, entire with specs, illustrations or photos and price ranges.

Slice to the chase

  • What is it? A less expensive alternative to the Galaxy Tab S6
  • When is it out? Probably really quickly
  • What will it expense? Possibly close to $415 / £340 / AU$680

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite launch date and cost

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite has been outlined on Amazon Germany with a launch date of April two, a date that has now been and long gone. That claimed, its presence on Amazon at all implies it is launching quickly, and which is not the only store we have viewed it outlined on.

We’ve also earlier viewed it stated by title in an formal Bluetooth certification database, which even further implies it’s in all probability practically below.

The slate has also been certified by the FCC (Federal Communications Fee), as noticed by SamMobile, which is another indication that it is practically below. It has even been outlined by Netflix as supporting Hd playback on the support, so it is not a really effectively saved mystery.

Plus, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e was declared in February 2019, and the Tab S6 Lite is something of a successor to that, even further suggesting it should really land quickly, since the S5e landed close to a yr back.

As for what it will expense, the Amazon listing states it is €428.forty four, (close to $470 / £380 / AU$770) for an LTE design, although an before rumor pointed to a cost of between 350 and 400 euros, which – splitting the difference – converts to close to $415 / £340 / AU$680.

A listing on B&H (an electronics store) meanwhile puts the starting off cost at $349.99 (around £280/AU$575) for a 64GB Wi-Fi-only design.

That all broadly tends to make sense, as it would set the cost around in line with the Galaxy Tab S5e, which starts off at $399/£379/AU$649. 

Certainly it should really be a honest bit a lot less than the $649.99 / £619 / AU$1,099 Samsung Galaxy Tab S6.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite design and style and show

One of the largest Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite leaks takes the form of a render, which you can see down below. This looks like it could be an formal press render, and if so then which is even further proof that the slate is in all probability landing quickly.

As for what it demonstrates, there are black bezels along each individual edge of the monitor, and a design and style that from the entrance (which is all we have viewed) looks a large amount like the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6.

You can also see that there is a single-lens entrance-facing camera, and most notably that there is an S Pen stylus.

Extra recently we have viewed additional renders, this time showing the slate from each the entrance and again. You can see these down below.

The resource of these renders included that the Tab S6 Lite apparently has a ten.4-inch 1200 x 2000 monitor, an aluminum entire body, a thickness of 7mm, and a fat of 467g. Dependent on the illustrations or photos it also seems like the slate will appear in each black and blue-grey shades.

The very same design and style can also be viewed in an Amazon Germany listing, which states that the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite has a ten.4-inch monitor and dimensions of 245 x 154 x 7mm.

And we have viewed the design and style yet yet again in a B&H listing, some of which you can see down below, this time in ‘Chiffon Rose’, ‘Oxford Gray’ and ‘Angora Blue’ shades.

That listing disagreed marginally on monitor specs, declaring that the Tab S6 Lite has either a ten.4-inch or ten.1-inch show with a one thousand x 2000 resolution, but we suspect which is improper, especially as the web site cannot make up its thoughts about the dimensions.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite specs and characteristics

The stylus in the leaked graphic previously mentioned is notable simply because although the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 comes with just one, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e doesn’t. So which includes just one below could support the Tab S6 Lite stand out in the mid-selection market place.

The design and style of the stylus also looks identical to the just one that comes with the Tab S6, which may well suggest the characteristics are the very same much too. So it’s possible that there is a magnetized slot on the again of the slate to home and charge the stylus.

It may well also guidance Air Steps, which let you interact with the slate by generating gestures with the stylus in the air previously mentioned the monitor.

The resource of stylus the graphic previously mentioned in addition statements that the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite will have a mid-selection Exynos 9611 chipset, 4GB of RAM, Android ten, and either 64GB or 128GB of storage, relying on in which in the entire world you get it.

Broadly people precise very same specs have been viewed on a store listing much too – even though it claimed the slate takes advantage of the Exynos 9610 instead than 9611.

We’ve earlier viewed the Exynos 9611 chipset, along with that RAM quantity and Android model stated in a benchmark, so there is a superior likelihood people details are correct.

We’ve also listened to the very same specs from another resource, which adds that the slate will have an 8MP rear camera, a 5MP entrance-facing just one, a seven,040mAh battery, a microSD card slot, and that it will appear in each LTE and Wi-Fi-only configurations.

What we want to see in the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite

Even assuming the rumors are correct, there is nevertheless a large amount that we don’t know about the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite just yet, but down below you’ll locate what we’re hoping to see.

1. A stylus

Leaks suggest the Tab S6 Lite will have a stylus

Dependent on leaks, the inclusion of a stylus looks really possible, and we hope there is just one, as this accessory could change the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite from an identikit mid-ranger to something with a serious promoting point.

It would also possible be a considerably less expensive way to get a stylus-packed slate than most iPad selections or the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6. And if the stylus comes packing all the very same tech as it does in the Tab S6 then it will be a superior just one much too.

two. A headphone port

Headphone ports are evidently on the way out, but there is just as evidently nevertheless an viewers for them, and in a unit as massive as a pill the argument for eliminating them is a lot less compelling than in a cellphone, in which each individual very small quantity of area matters.

We don’t count on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite will have a headphone port, offered that the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 and Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e don’t, but it would be wonderful if it did.

three. A affordable cost tag

Back again in the realms of possible characteristics is an economical cost. We don’t count on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite to be low-priced, but it’s possible to have a mid-selection cost, and may well even undercut the iPad ten.two. If it does that although which includes a stylus then Samsung could have a serious winner on its hands in the low-priced Android pill area.

4. A wonderful monitor

If there is just one point Samsung is aware how to do effectively, it’s screens, and even its mid-selection slates tend to have superior types, so we’re not asking for considerably with our would like for a wonderful monitor.

A Super AMOLED show of over ten inches with a QHD+ resolution is possible, and that should really just about be adequate for us to take into consideration the monitor wonderful, but if Samsung could pack in HDR guidance much too then it would be even improved.

5. A keyboard address

The Tab S6 has lots of productivity potential. We want the same here

As effectively as a stylus, we’d also like for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite to launch together with an formal keyboard address. 

But we’re not greedy, we don’t need to have this to be bundled with the slate, it can be sold as an optional additional just as it is with the conventional Samsung Galaxy Tab S6.

Even with the additional expense, the skill to flip the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite into a genuine efficiency unit could be enormously attractive for some people, although people who just want a pill can get pleasure from the Tab S6 Lite as is, with out splashing out on highly-priced components.
