The Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite comes in Wi-Fi only and 4G models. The tablet is both smaller and cheaper compared to the Galaxy Tab A7 10.4 (2020).
The Galaxy Tab A7 Lite features an 8.7” LCD with 1,340 x 800 px resolution (15:9). The back cover is made out of metal, but the slate is still fairly light at 366g and measures 8.0 mm thick (note that the LTE version is a few grams heavier).
This slate is powered by a Helio P22T chipset (MT8768T), which has eight Cortex-A53 cores and a PowerVR GE8320 GPU. The base configuration has 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB storage, but you can get a 4/64 GB unit if that feels too cramped. In both cases the slate supports microSD cards up to 1 TB.
The tablet has a 5,100 mAh battery. It can be charged over USB-C at 15W, though you don’t get one included in the box. Also, note that the USB-C port is wired only for 2.0 speeds, so you won’t get display out (so no DeX mode).
Both the Wi-Fi and the 4G versions of the Tab A7 Lite have Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.0 and GPS (again, no NFC). While they are not AKG-branded, the slate also has stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos support. And this one does have a 3.5 mm headphone jack.
The 8 MP camera on the back has autofocus, but the chipset can’t keep up with 4K so it tops out at 1080p/30 fps. The front-facing camera has 2 MP resolution (fixed focus), should still be good enough for video calls, though.
