Samsung's Android tablets are pretty much the only Android tablets worth paying serious attention to (next to Amazon's Fire tablets), and rhe company is set to unveil two new ones pretty soon. The Galaxy Tab S7 will be seing a new "lite" model, reportedly heading to the market in June. While earlier reports had it dubbed the Tab S7 Lite, it'll reportedly be called the Tab S7+ Lite. As far as names go, that is one of them. We've gotten spec leaks and renders in the past, so this is a pretty minor one, all things considered.
This time, the render not only shows off the mystic pink color way, but a selection of the book cover-styled cases and their colors. From the image, it appears to ship in black, blue, grey, teal, and pink. If you've seen the same case for the Tab S7, this won't surprise you. Just like the tablet is a dead ringer for the The tablet looks a lot like the Tab 7+ Lite, even down to the S-Pen holder on the cover case.

Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy Tab S7+ Lite along with the A7 Lite sometime in June. The S7 Lite is said to come with a Snapdragon 750G chip — the same that powers some of the best cheap Android phones. It'll also have up to 8GB of RAM.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S7
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 is one of the nicest Android tablets, with speedy performance, a beautiful screen, and an S-Pen for flexibility. If you can't wait for the S7 Lite, this remains a viable option.
I guess that Samsung is trying to continue to offer some of their premium tablets with affordable variants. It would be nice if their were more choices in this space, especially from Google. A Pixel tablet would go a long way to help make sure this isn't just a 2 horse Android race between Samsung and Amazon.
