That itemizing disagreed barely on display specs, saying that the Tab S6 Lite has both a 10.4-inch or 10.1-inch show with a 1000 x 2000 decision, however we suspect that is flawed, particularly as the location cannot make up its thoughts in regards to the measurement.
Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite specs and options
The stylus within the leaked picture above is notable as a result of whereas the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 comes with one, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e doesn’t. So together with one right here might assist the Tab S6 Lite stand out within the mid-range market.
The design of the stylus additionally seems just like the one which comes with the Tab S6, which could imply the options are the identical too. So it’s potential that there’s a magnetized slot on the again of the slate to accommodate and cost the stylus.
It may also help Air Actions, which allow you to work together with the slate by making gestures with the stylus within the air above the display.
The supply of stylus the picture above moreover claims that the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite could have a mid-range Exynos 9611 chipset, 4GB of RAM, Android 10, and both 64GB or 128GB of storage, relying on the place on this planet you purchase it.
Broadly these very same specs have been seen on a retailer itemizing too – although it claimed the slate makes use of the Exynos 9610 somewhat than 9611.

What we wish to see within the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite
Even assuming the rumors are proper, there’s nonetheless quite a bit that we don’t know in regards to the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite simply but, however beneath you’ll discover what we’re hoping to see.
1. A stylus
Based mostly on leaks, the inclusion of a stylus seems very doubtless, and we hope there’s one, as this accent might rework the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite from an identikit mid-ranger to one thing with an actual promoting level.
It could additionally doubtless be a less expensive method to get a stylus-packed slate than most iPad choices or the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6. And if the stylus comes packing all the identical tech because it does within the Tab S6 then it is going to be a very good one too.
2. A headphone port
Headphone ports are clearly on the way in which out, however there’s simply as clearly nonetheless an viewers for them, and in a tool as huge as a pill the argument for eradicating them is much less compelling than in a telephone, the place each tiny quantity of area issues.
We don’t count on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite could have a headphone port, on condition that the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 and Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e don’t, however it might be good if it did.
3. An inexpensive price ticket
Again within the realms of doubtless options is an inexpensive value. We don’t count on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite to be low-cost, but it surely’s prone to have a mid-range value, and would possibly even undercut the iPad 10.2. If it does that whereas together with a stylus then Samsung might have an actual winner on its palms within the cheap Android tablet area.
4. An important display
If there’s one factor Samsung is aware of methods to do nicely, it’s screens, and even its mid-range slates are inclined to have good ones, so we’re not asking for a lot with our want for a terrific display.
A Tremendous AMOLED show of over ten inches with a QHD+ decision is probably going, and that ought to nearly be sufficient for us to contemplate the display nice, but when Samsung might pack in HDR help too then it might be even higher.
5. A keyboard cowl
In addition to a stylus, we’d additionally love for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite to launch alongside an official keyboard cowl.
However we’re not grasping, we don’t want this to be bundled with the slate, it may be offered as an non-obligatory further simply as it’s with the usual Samsung Galaxy Tab S6.
Even with the additional expense, the flexibility to show the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite into a real productiveness gadget may very well be enormously fascinating for some folks, whereas those that simply need a pill can benefit from the Tab S6 Lite as is, with out forking out on costly equipment.
