Samsung launches Galaxy Tab S6 Lite with S Pen

Samsung has launched a toned-down version of its flagship product, Galaxy Tab 6. The new Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite will come with S-Pen support and One UI 2.1.

The tab features uni-body metal design with 10.4″ 2000×1200 px LCD display. The display is 0.1″ smaller than the regular Galaxy Tab S6’s Super AMOLED panel. The Lite version also skips the in-display fingerprint scanner. However, Samsung has included the S-Pen, it comes in the box. This S-Pen doesn’t have a built-in battery for air gestures like the S-Pen that comes with the Tab S6.

Galaxy Tab S6 lite is powered by an Octa-core Exynos 9611 SoC and offers a maximum clock speed of 2.3 GHz. Samsung has packed 4GB RAM onboard. The device is offered in two storage options – 64GB and 128GB. The Tab S6 Lite also has a microSD card slot, allowing memory expansion up to 1GB.

The tab has an 8MP primary camera and 5MP front-facing camera. On the connectivity front, it gets Bluetooth 5.0, WiFi, and LTE support. You also get a dedicated 3.5 mm jack and support for Dolby Atmos for the better sound experience. The 7040 mAh battery promises a decent battery life.

The device is powered by Android 10 with One UI 2.1 out of the box. You can connect it to a Samsung smartphone running Android Pie or higher to answer calls and reply to text messages. The company has launched this device in three colour options – Oxford Grey, Chiffon Pink and Angora Blue. The price starts at $349.99 for the WiFi-only model. Samsung will start shipping the device in Q2 of this year.
