Numerous renders of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite appeared online earlier today, revealing a device looking to punch above its weight.
The images that can be seen below confirm at least two colors are in the works – black and a grayish hue of blue.
Samsung’s unsurprisingly sticking to the bezel-less design language it’s been perfecting for many years now. The Galaxy Tab S6 Lite will hence have a more premium aesthetic than many of its rivals, in addition to sporting some unique selling points.
One of those are AKG-tuned speakers, as suggested by the product renders believed to have leaked from a company source.
Regarding other specifications, expect Samsung’s own Exynos 9611 paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage space. The Galaxy Tab S6 Lite will be a 10.4-inch affair running Android 10 with One UI out of the box.
According to previous reports, Samsung is also preparing a variant with 128GB of internal memory. LTE-enabled models are also in the plans and are expected to launch globally. The 128GB version of the tablet, on the other hand, may only release in select regions.
Much like the Galaxy Tab S6, its more modest brother will ship with Samsung’s latest S Pen. The device will likely be able to charge the stylus wirelessly, thus becoming the first mid-range Samsung tablet to do so.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite to punch well above its weight
The newly emerged leaks are in line with the first Galaxy Tab S6 Lite renders AndroidHeadlines exclusively uncovered last month.
It’s obvious Samsung is looking to emulate the overall aesthetic of its 2019 flagship, which is arguably the best Android tablet money can currently buy. That isn’t to say the two lines will be truly comparable in performance, of course. However, the quality gap between the two price ranges should continue shrinking.
Samsung already obtained Bluetooth certification for the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite just over a month ago. Based on the company’s track record, it’s likely the tablet’s official launch happens at some point next month.
Adding further credibility to that scenario is the fact Samsung introduced the Galaxy Tab S5e in April of 2019. The South Korean company rarely breaks regular product release patterns, even during uncertain times such as these.
While yes, the global markets are currently unstable, Samsung has little to gain from postponing the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite’s release. If anything, the company’s budget-conscious products are better-positioned to succeed in 2020 than their flagship counterparts.
