UPDATE 03/27/2024: Despite the silent launch in Romania, Samsung oddly never announced the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite 2024. However, in a blog post today, the company rectified that and announced its refreshed budget-friendly tablet. While the price wasn’t mentioned, the sale starts on March 28.

Samsung first launched its budget tablet, the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite, back in 2020. But the Korean company didn’t stop there. 

The company refreshed the tablet two years later, naming it Galaxy Tab S6 Lite 2022. And now we have another refresh, the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite 2024.

The rumors about the second Tab S6 Lite refresh have been circling the web for a while. But it seemed foolish for the company to stick to a 4-year-old naming convention for a new tablet.

However, proving us wrong, Samsung has officially listed the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite 2024 on its Romanian website.

While the official Galaxy Tab S6 Lite 2024 doesn’t reveal the tablet’s price, it does reveal the complete specs and a bunch of official product images. 

Design-wise the 2024 Tab S6 Lite retains the same as its predecessors. But it now has a new Mint color option. 

The biggest update is probably under the hood, as the 2024 Tab S6 Lite sports an unspecified processor. However, the listed clock speed indicates the Exynos 1280 SoC.

Besides the process, the rest of the specs mostly remain unchanged. 

The tablet still sports a 10.4-inch TFT display with a 60Hz refresh rate and a 2000 x 1200 resolution.

You will find a single 8MP camera on the tablet’s rear capable of 1080p video recording and a 5MP camera at the front for selfies. 

The new Galaxy Tab S6 Lite 2024 uses the same 7,040mAh battery and 15W charging support as its predecessors.

It still offers S Pen support and comes in the box. 

The 2024 Tab S6 Lite runs the latest  One UI 6.1. However, it may not support any new Galaxy AI tricks due to software limitations. 

Interestingly, despite the Exynos 1280 being 5G-capable, the new Tab S6 Lite only offers LTE connectivity. 

Additional features include a 3.5mm headphone jack and a microSD card slot.

The US pricing and availability of the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite 2024 is a mystery at the moment. 

The 2022 Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is currently listed on the Samsung website for $429. So, if the 2024 version hits the American market, we expect the tablet to cost around or slightly over $400.
