News Tech: Almost all of Samsung’s bases were covered during the much awaited Unpacked presentation on August 10 when the firm unveiled two stunning new foldable phones, two distinct smartwatches (with two very different pricing points), and its most cutting-edge competitor to Apple’s market-leading AirPods.
But the world’s largest handset manufacturer did neglect another Apple-dominated market… for one pretty obvious and logical reason. The high-end Galaxy Tab S8, Tab S8+, and Tab S8 Ultra are far too young to already get a series of iPad Pro-rivaling sequels, while Samsung’s mid-range tablet portfolio was refreshed with little to no fanfare just a few months ago.
Interestingly, Samsung itself is offering no discounts whatsoever right now on either of the two Wi-Fi-only models, whose specs are extremely similar to those of the first-gen Galaxy Tab S6 Lite (which has been quietly discontinued in favor of this newer edition). In a nutshell, the Tab S6 Lite (2022) is slightly faster than the 2020 generation, packing Qualcomm’s middling Snapdragon 720 processor instead of Samsung’s own Exynos 9611 chipset, and with Android 12 out the box, the newer tablet should enjoy significantly longer software support (at least in theory).
