Recent leaks have pointed to the development of a second version of the Galaxy Tab S6, Samsung's latest premium tablet. It has been thought to be called the Lite variant of its series. This was later confirmed through its approval by the Bluetooth SIG. Now, Samsung has added FCC clearance to its certifications for the same device.

A new database entry for this product (the SM-P615) confirms that it is a tablet made by Samsung. This Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is currently believed to be mid-range compared to its existing sibling: it may have an Exynos 9611 SoC rather than a Snapdragon 855, and perhaps 4GB of RAM instead of 6 as in the full-fat version.

Nevertheless, the newer model's FCC assessment shows it will still have 4G/LTE connectivity. In addition, we know it will be a Bluetooth 5.0 device. However, its screen size and quality are still in doubt, as is its ability to retain an S-Pen on its rear panel using magnets.

Then again, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is still rumored to be capable of wireless charging. This is a combination of high- and not-so-high-end features that may be confirmed at its launch.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
