Samsung originally released the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite back in 2020 and now the company has silently released a refreshed version of the device. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite (2022) is now available for pre-order on some online retail platforms.
Instead of the Exynos 9611 chipset that powered the 2020 model, the new Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is powered by the Snapdragon 720G chip from an 8nm process. The newer chipset provides greater depth for the new device, with noticeable improvements in CPU and GPU performance.
While the old version ran on Android 10, the new model will run on the latest Android OS, the Android 12 with One UI 4.0, which provides much color and quality to users.
It has a 4GB RAM with up to 64GB internal storage configuration. The storage can be expanded via its MicroSD slot. The Galaxy Tab S6 lite comes with two AKG-tuned speakers with Dolby Atmos providing an improved audio output. The 4GB/64GB configuration seems to be the only available variant of the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite (2022) currently. We are yet to see the 128GB storage version, but this could be available subsequently.
The 2022 version of the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite comes with a 10.4-inch LCD, a 7,040mAh battery, and support for the S Pen.
We note that the original Galaxy Tab S6 Lite has enjoyed the Android 12 upgrade, with extended software support for the next year. We expect to see at least one OS upgrade for the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite (2022) in its lifetime.
