Samsung has finally announced the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite, and it is an absolute stinker. While the device may look modern with its thin bezels and slim form factor, the inclusion of a TFT panel means that you should give the Tab S6 Lite a miss. Seriously, why release a £339.00 (~US$425) tablet with a TFT panel in 2020?

Samsung has announced the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite, in Indonesia at least. Following on from our report yesterday, the 10.4-inch tablet will feature an Exynos 9611 processor, 4 GB of RAM and up to 128 GB of storage. Available in LTE and Wi-Fi variants, Samsung has confirmed that the Tab S6 Lite also supports up to 1 TB microSD cards.

Shown in three colours, it seems that Samsung will sell a pink version of the Tab S6 Lite in some markets. The tablet is 7 mm thick too and weighs in at 467 g with a 7,040 mAh battery.

Argos failed to disclose that the Tab S6 Lite has a TFT panel, though. To the retailer's credit, Samsung has chosen to hide this within the tablet's technical specifications. Clearly, the  South Korean company wants to gloss over that it has released a device in 2020 with a panel type typified by dreadful viewing angles and poor colour accuracy. Oddly, even the Galaxy Tab S5e has an AMOLED panel.

The Tab S6 Lite comes with One UI 2 pre-installed, too. Samsung is yet to announce global availability and pricing, though.
