It’s been a while since Samsung launched a tablet, so it’s high time for a new slate. We’re also overdue a Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 Lite, so it all makes sense. Insiders have revealed by SamMobile, that Samsung is working on a sequel to the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite from last year.
The device will come in 3 versions: WiFi only, 4G LTE and 5G. The model numbers are SM-T730, SM-T735 and SM-T736B/ SM-T736N. The name of the device isn’t clear yet and while some speculate about Galaxy Tab S7 Lite, some actually mention a Galaxy Tab S8e. Even the name Tab S7 XL is thrown in the mix, with a much larger than usual diagonal. Expect some stylus action, magnetic attachment at the back, quad speakers and at least a Snapdragon 765G CPU inside, or maybe the Exynos 1080?
It’s easy to guess what specs to expect, judging by the last year model. Tab S6 Lite was a 7 mm thick tablet with a 10.4 inch TFT screen, an Exynos 9611 processor and 7040 mAh battery. There was also 4 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of storage. Now it would be time to get an IPS LCD screen, if not a Super AMOLED, 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, plus a slim metallic body. The CPU may be similar to the Galaxy A52 5G one, which leaked recently with a Snapdragon 750G 5G processor.
As long as the screen is anything but a TFT and we get quad speakers, I’m happy.
