The market of Android tablets isn’t appealing nowadays due to the lack of consistent features to make big-screen devices appealing. However, some companies still bet on this segment and provide exclusive features to expand the usability of Android devices and attract users to these platforms. Among the tablet enthusiasts, we have Samsung which is one of the leading companies in the Android side of the coin. When it comes to the market as a whole, Apple still has the tablet segment under its belt. Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Tab S7 series last year and recently updated them to Android 11-based One UI 3.1 update. Now, a new report suggests that the brand is preparing a new variant lineup of tablets under the Galaxy Tab S7 Lite moniker.
Gizchina News of the week
According to insiders, the company is gearing up to unveil a sequel to the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite from last year. It will come in three distinct variants – Wi-Fi only, LTE, and 5G. The model numbers are SM-T730, SM-T735, and SM-T736B / SM-T736N, respectively. In fact, the Tab S7 and S7+ models also have these three distinct variants. Worth noting that the exact name of the models is unclear, some think that it will come as Galaxy Tab S7 Lite. Others believe it will reach the market as Tab S8e. The latter seems to be a good option, after all, it will reflect the upcoming Tab S8 series and users will not associate it with a last year’s model.
Samsung may also be preparing a Galaxy Tab S7 Lite Plus / XL
According to SamMobile, a Lite Plus variant, or XL version could also be coming soon. While there’s still mission information regarding the vanilla version, further evidence suggests that Samsung is also preparing another variant with Plus and/or XL designation. This new variant should share similar specifications, however, it may pack a larger display. So the name will stand for the actual size of the device and not the processing power.
While information is missing, we suspect that at least the 5G variant will bring the Exynos 1080 SoC. Of course, this chipset would give a flagship-like performance to the tablet. So we can’t set this in stone just yet. Samsung unleashed its Galaxy Tab S6 Lite in the first half of 2020. For that reason, we expect the sequel will also reach the market before July 2021. Of course, more details will keep popping out as the Korean firm isn’t the best in keeping upcoming devices a secret.
