Samsung is preparing a Galaxy Tab S6 Lite with S Pen support and a 5G Galaxy A71

Back in October last year, Samsung launched the Galaxy Tab S6 — a flagship tablet with top-of-the-line specs, AKG tuned speakers, a fantastic display, and S Pen support. In my review of the Galaxy Tab S6, I found it to be an excellent choice for artists or people looking for a portable media device, but still not good enough to be a laptop replacement. Now, it seems like Samsung is prepping up to launch a lite version of the tablet which is expected to be called the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite.

As per a recent report from Android Headlines, the upcoming Galaxy Tab S6 Lite will look a whole lot like the flagship Tab S6 and it will also include support for the same redesigned S Pen. The report claims that the tablet will be powered by Samsung’s Exynos 9611 chipset, which can be found on many of the company’s mid-range smartphones, coupled with 4GB of RAM and up to 128GB of internal storage. In keeping with the specifications, the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite will be a whole lot cheaper than the flagship model and it’s expected to be priced around $399.

The Galaxy Tab S6 Lite has also appeared on the Google Play Console Device Catalog, which confirms the aforementioned specifications and also reveals that it will feature a 1200×2000 resolution display and run Android 10 out of the box. Furthermore, as one of the system features is listed as “com.google.android.feature.EEA_DEVICE,” we expect that the Tab S6 Lite will be sold in Europe. Another revealing feature that’s listed as “com.sec.feature.spen_usp,” confirms that it will support the S Pen. We can also confirm that the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite moniker is legit, since it was recently certified by the Bluetooth SIG with the model number SM-P615.

Along with the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite, Samsung is also prepping up to launch a 5G version of its mid-range Galaxy A71. The device has also been certified by the Bluetooth SIG and it will sold under the Galaxy A71 5G moniker, with the model number SM-A7160. While Samsung hasn’t revealed any more information about the Galaxy A71 5G, we believe that it could feature Samsung’s Exynos 980 chip which includes 5G support.
