Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is a 10.4 inch Android tablet with a FHD+ touchscreen display and support for Samsung’s pressure-sensitive S-Pen. It’s also one of the most affordable S-Pen enabled devices.

When Samsung first launched the tablet in 2020, it had a list price of $350, and two years later, when the company released an updated model with a faster processor, it was priced within the same ballpark. Both models often go on sale, with prices sometimes falling as low as $200. Now Samsung is preparing to launch another update to this tablet, bringing a faster processor and newer version of Google’s Android operating system. Update: The Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is official and it should be available beginning March, 28, 2024.

A series of leaks over the past few weeks have indicated that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S6 Lite (2024) refresh will look identical to earlier models on the outside. It has the same 10.4 inch, 2000 x 1200 pixel IPS LCD display, USB-C port, and headphone jack.

The battery, cameras, memory, and storage don’t appear to have changed either.

What is new is that the tablet will have a Samsung Exynos 1280 processor that combines two ARM Cortex-A78 CPU cores with six Cortex-A55 cores and Mali-G68 MC4 graphics.

While this isn’t exactly a state-of-the-art processor, it should bring at least a modest speed bump over the Snapdragon 720G chip used in the 2022 model and an even bigger improvement over the Exynos 9610 processor used in the 2020 version.

The new version of the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is also expected to ship with Android 14, and will likely continue to be supported by Samsung for longer than either of the older models.

While these modest spec bumps might not be enough to encourage anyone with a previous-gen Galaxy Tab S6 Lite to upgrade, they could make the new model more attractive than the older versions for new customers.

There’s no word on exactly when the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite (2024) will be available, but it’s expected to come in at least two versions: a WiFi-only tablet with the model number SM-P620 and a 4G LTE version called the SM-P625.

According to German site WinFuture, they’re expected to sell for around 400 Euros and 450 Euros, respectively. I suspect that means they’ll go for around $400 to $450 in the US, although if history tells us anything, it’s that those prices will likely fall within the first year after the new tablet goes on sale. 91mobiles has also spotted product pages with detailed specs, painting a picture of a tablet that’s nearly identical to earlier models in most respects… but which has a few key upgrades, which I’ve highlighted in the table below.

  1. spec is laying
    this same machine with different cpu, memory etc on europe, on us on korea (asia)

  2. How weird… isn’t Samsung Tablets at S9 at this point?
    Was the S6 special in some way to deserve these refreshes? I don’t get it.
    Back years ago I specifically chose the S5e instead of S6 Lite for looking like a better deal overall.

    1. If there wasn’t for the need for decent Stylus support then an Onn Tablet is generally a better deal. I actually don’t see any use for a tablet except as a pen display and now that AI is making digital art even more obsolete, it is mainly just a handwriting note-taking device I guess. I’m not sure wtf it is. Tech just makes everything weirder.

  3. I hate the tedious debloating process of OEM Android no root, but I am still new to this. It is nice to have very few Google Apps. I’m keeping the Play Store just because I like repositories, even if I never use it. I hate spending more on a phone than my $200 laptop, which is more useful, just not portable.

  4. I can’t quite understand why they persist with calling it an “S6”. Why don’t they just make it an “S9 Lite”, making it clear that it has a new processor and a new countdown on updates/security patches?
