Samsung’s “New” Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is Here, but is it Worth Getting?


It’s been a few years now since the debut of Samsung’s fan-favourite Galaxy Tab S6 Lite, which gained a significant following among brand enthusiasts and budget tablet buyers thanks to its sleek design, large display, and bundled S-Pen. In fact, it’s become rather popular that Samsung has once again decided to release a slightly newer model following its 2022 incarnation.

Simply referred to as the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite 2024, the tablet comes in three different colors including Oxford Gray, Chiffon Pink and Mint. It comes with virtually all the same specifications as the original model, save for the Exynos 1280 chipset inside and the addition of Android 14. With that being said however, unless you’re really after a somewhat-affordable Android tablet with a premium design, there’s not much reason to get excited about the new Tab S6 Lite.

The return to an Exynos chipset is a questionable decision, especially since the 2022 version of the tablet used a Snapdragon 7-series chip, which arguably has better performance and power efficiency overall. For comparison, the Exynos 1280 in the 2024 version is the same chip found in the budget Galaxy A33, which was launched two years ago.

Perhaps we can still bear with the display – the Tab S6 Lite packs a 10.4-inch TFT display with 2000 x 1200 resolution, and while it’s not an AMOLED panel on here, the display should be sharp and bright enough for most tasks. The same can be said for the overall design, which does come with a premium look and metal chassis usually reserved for more expensive Samsung tablets.

Another major gripe is the tablet’s memory configuration – the 2024 S6 Lite comes with a basic 4GB RAM and 64GB expandable storage, although there’s a 128GB variant available that unfortunately sticks with 4GB of RAM as well. At this point in time, a 6GB variant at the very least should be the most basic option.

Other hardware details include 8MP and 5MP cameras on the back and front, as well as a 7,040mAh battery. Like its earlier versions, it also comes with an included S-Pen, a welcome feature that adds a bit of productivity. Samsung wasn’t exactly clear about the device’s pricing, but many are speculating that it could be somewhere between the 400-500 dollar range. Given that not much upgrades are present on this latest version of the Tab S6 Lite, a $350 price tag would be more appropriate.

The Galaxy Tab S6 Lite 2024 will officially go on sale on March 28.
