Predicting that Samsung will release a new Lite-flavored Galaxy tablet doesn’t make you Nostradamus: the company is the only one (aside from Amazon) that consistently scores hits with Android tablet hardware. We’ve seen inklings of the Galaxy S7 Lite earlier this year, but prolific leaker Onleaks is back with images and a full 360-degree render of the upcoming device.
Previous leaks indicated that the S7 Lite will be on the larger side, with a 12.4-inch screen matching the size of the one on the Tab S7+. The new images and video indicate that this is the case, with the display appearing to be approximately a 16:10 aspect ratio, as Samsung has favored as of late. Onleaks’ 360-degree video shows the familiar POGO pins and accessory studs on the bottom of the case.
An improvement over last year’s model is apparently a dual rear camera system, possibly matching the 13MP/5MP setup of the main Tab S7, but omitting the dedicated LED flash module. Samsung apparently remains committed to keeping its tablets as thin as possible, as the S6 Lite’s chassis is allegedly just 6.34 millimeters thick. The bezels appear noticeably thinner than last year’s model.

There’s no word on internal specs or a price, but Onleaks says that the tablet will be announced in June. The Tab S6 Lite has a retail price of $350, but with the larger screen for this generation, there might be a price bump. We’ve also seen multiple leaks of a smaller, more compact Galaxy Tab A7.
