The Samsung tablet line is consistent and follows the naming conventions of the Galaxy S line of phones. Last year, we saw the first “lite” tablet from Samsung in the Tab S5e. We saw the first signs there would be a successor in the Tab S6 lite last year, followed by the device passing FCC.
Thanks to an Amazon listing spotted by Price Baba, and now taken down, we now know pricing.
The Wi-Fi only variant is priced starting at €399 (AU$718.77 on current exchange rate) and the LTE version will be €430 (AU$774.62). Let’s be blunt, neither of those is a cheap option and leaves me to wonder what the future of Android tablets could be. For the same price, you can get a laptop from one of the major retailers that offer a lot of extra capabilities.
Samsung has done little to hide their intent to position the Tab SX range against the iPad Pro and perhaps these prices give an indication of what we can expect from the Galaxy Tab 7 in terms of pricing on its arrival. We’ll be staying on top of the availability of the Tab S6 lite as more information becomes available.
What would an Android tablet need to deliver for you to invest your hard-earned dollars in a new device?
