Samsung will soon launch a “lite” tablet which is quite similar to the Galaxy Tab S6. Consequently, it is being touted as Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite. Sources expect the tablet to come with a redesigned S Pen. It may also come with wireless charging ability but this is not confirmed still. The design aspects of the tablet make it quite clear that wireless charging may be necessary.
Major features of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite
- Exynos 9611 chipset will help the tablet to run quickly. This chipset is most commonly used to run mid-range smartphones.
- The tablet will run on a 4GB RAM, which does not seem very impressive
- Users will have a choice between 64GB and 128GB storage. Again, it is not a lot of space considering today’s market, but one does have access to online storage anyway
- It may cost around $400 or even lesser, making it one of the most affordable tablets around
- The Galaxy Tab S6 Lite will run on Android 10, in addition to One UI 2.1
When will the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite be released?
At the moment there is no information about the actual release date or price. However, reliable sources have revealed that it is going to be more affordable than its predecessor and will also arrive e in the market anytime now. Many market observers have noted that Samsung has released multiple products in the recent past. This may have something to do with the company’s sense of losing ground to other players.
Samsung seems to be playing catch-up with its competitors
Samsung’s latest attempt to taking back the tablet market may be driven by a sense of insecurity, as too many companies have launched Android tablets. Samsung has a lot of competition to deal with, and its old nemesis Apple is still ruling the market with its iPads. Thus, it wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that Samsung is playing catch-up, and while the tablet looks impressive, it could have been better.
Should Samsung change its tablet strategy?
It is also important to note the tablets are not as popular as smartphones and laptops. Many tech observers note that while the tablets seem to have gained traction in the market, there is a large segment of the target audience that does not purchase tablets. This means, Samsung should find a business model akin to Apple, which has focused its iPad efforts on consuming content, rather than on creation.
