Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite (2022) quietly launches with Android 12


Samsung has quietly released another 2022 edition of a 2020 device: the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite slate has been updated and is available on Amazon Italy, accepting pre-orders. Shipments and sales will begin on May 23.

When comparing the spec sheets of the original and the 2022 edition, the main thing that stands out is which version of Android you get out of the box: the new slate comes with Android 12 instead of 10.

The original S6 Lite was updated to Android 12 a few months ago and is eligible for another update (and a year of security patches after that). That said, given the relatively old hardware, it’s unclear what kind of update schedule the 2022 edition can expect.

The other thing we noticed is the price: the 4/64GB model costs €400, which is €20 more than the original two years ago (this could be a variation in regional prices). Also, we don’t see a 128GB or LTE version, though that could be because the slate has only just been released and stores are still updating their inventory online (the 2022 edition isn’t showing up on Samsung Italy yet).

Retail package content includes S Pen and charger

The rest is the same. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite (2022) has a 10.4-inch LCD screen with a resolution of 2000 x 1200 pixels, which supports the included S Pen. It’s powered by a Snapdragon 720G chipset (with 4GB RAM, 64GB storage, and a microSD slot) and a 7,040mAh battery. There’s a pair of AKG-tuned speakers with Dolby Atmos support and a 3.5mm jack. Check out our hands-on review of the original for more details, just note that the software is now Android 12 with One UI 4.0.
