Samsung has been rolling out lite versions of of its flagships for smartphones so it is only natural that the company from Korea is finally unveiling a lite version of their flagship tablet as well. Behold the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 which looks almost like a carbon copy of its the premium version but with a few cutbacks of course. But the moment you take a closer look, you will know that that's where the similarity ends.
10.4-inch TFT display
First thing first, the display on Tab S6 Lite is different from the premium version as it is smaller at 10.4-inch and has a resolution of 2400x1200. Apart from that the display on the watered down tablet is a cheaper TFT panel instead of a better OLED panel. The good news is that the screen will support an S Pen despite being a budget version of the more premium S6 tablet. Though the S Pen included is not the latest Bluetooth-enabled which supports air gestures, it is still an amazing inclusion for a tablet. How many tablets are actually supporting direct stylus input with dedicated apps?
S Pen is included in Tab S6 Lite! Yay!
Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is powered by 1.7GHz Exynos octa-core processor and is complemented by 4GB of RAM 64GB of internal storage. Though the storage is somewhat small for today's standard, there is option to expand storage via SD Card. If you feel that the internal storage is not sufficient, you can always opt for the more advanced LTE variant of Tab S6 Lite with 128GB of internal storage. In terms of battery life, Tab S6 Lite has a huge 7,040mAh battery that can last up to 12 hours on a single charge via USB-C cable.
Here is something that the cheaper Tab S6 Lite has over the premium model-a headphone jack. Yes! We all have to agree that not everyone loves to use wireless earbuds to enjoy their movies or music, so having a headphone jack which does not need to be charged is a big plus actually, considering that you will be most probably be watching a lot of movies, youtube clips and listening to music using a tablet. Big win here!
