- Samsung is gearing to launch a new tablet, the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite in a few weeks.

Samsung is preparing to launch a new pen-enabled tablet, as per a new report from Android Headlines. This would be the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite, a cheaper version of the well-built Tab S6 that debuted last year. While that tablet was built as an iPad Pro competitor, this one appears to be made for users with more modest wallets and aspirations.
Android Headlines reports:
Samsung is carrying out a fair bit of brand consolidation here. Last year, the firm seemed to have a fairly streamlined line of flagship products, with near-flagship products being built under different brands for differentiation. We had the S6 and the S5e, the S10 and the A90, and so on.
This year, it's opting to use the brands of last year's flagships to push products it would previously have launched under different names. At CES, the firm announced the S10 and Note 10 Lite. With the Tab S6 Lite, another of last year's flagship brands gets a second life.
