These days, every gadget has to have a ‘Pro’ and/or ‘Lite’ model in addition the standard model. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 is no different. It now is joined by a supposedly “more affordable” Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite.
But. But don’t get too excited. It was announced in South Korea, which means, it is not getting the Qualcomm chip. It’s Exynos. Horrifying. I know. But not surprisingly at all. However, it will NOT be Exynos when it reaches U.S. shores.
Anywho, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite shares the same beautiful design as the regular Tab S6, but everything else is understandably “lesser”.
Key features and specs include 10.4-inch WUXGA+ TFT touch display, octacore processor, 4 GB RAM, 64 or 128 GB storage, microSD card slot (supports up to 1 TB), an 8 MP f1.9 main camera, a 5 MP f2.0 front-facing snapper, dual-band wireless 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS+GLONASS, dual speakers sound by AKG, Dolby Atmos, 3.5 mm headphone jack, the usual sensors (accelerometer, gyro, RGB and hall), and a 7,040 mAh battery with 15 W fast charging.
Oh, wait. There’s, of course, S Pen.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite Tablet should arrive later this month with a starting price of $349.99. That’s like nearly 50 percent cheaper over the regular Galaxy Tab S6. I can’t find it listed in stateside, but it is found on Samsung U.K. website where it is available for pre-order for a starting price of 349 quids.
