Recent leaks have pointed to upcoming, possibly more affordable, Samsung slates, one of which could be called the Galaxy Tab S7 Lite on its launch. However, the latest tip suggests that this device might in fact be the Lite version of the Tab S7 Plus instead. It has been touted as being 5G only up until now; however, there may now be scope for a 4G/LTE model as well.

Samsung has become linked to an imminent tablet launch as of late, thanks to a leak concerning a series of new model numbers that could be derivatives of those for the existing Galaxy Tab S7 line. They are the SM-T730, SM-T735, SM-T736B and SM-T736N.

This has led to speculation that one could pertain to a Tab A7 Lite, whereas the others could belong to the S7 or even S8 lines on their debut. However, a new leak suggests that the SM-T735, SM-T736B and SM-T736N are all different variants of the same slate: the Tab S7+ Lite.

MySmartPrice claims to have found references to the SM-T735N and SM-T736N on what the blog asserts is a "firmware" database, alongside a graphic of uncertain provenance that identifies them as the Galaxy Tab S7+ Lite 4G/LTE and 5G for the South Korean market respectively.

This material's iffy origins notwithstanding, it does appear to have authentic-looking Samsung styling, down to what looks very like the font typically used on its official marketing and online copy. Should it prove genuine, the seeming product-name key unequivocally states that the 5 in this device's model number denotes 4G/LTE connectivity, whereas 6 indicates 5G.

This contradicts earlier speculation that the 2 are different machines altogether, and also implies that the SM-T736B spotted on Geekbench previously is in fact a Galaxy Tab S7+ Lite 5G destined for a different region. According to that leak, it may arrive there with a Snapdragon processor, 4GB of RAM and Android 11 out of the box.
