The Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite surfaces many months after the regular Galaxy Tab A7 was released. Onboard this new device, is a package that falls beneath the former. Here we basically have less capable smartphone hardware that fosters a cheaper price tag, which can be seen as a strategy to push Samsung tablets into more hands.

Design and Display
The design system on tablets isn’t really far-fetched, they usually follow the theme of being a big slate, with an enormous screen estate provided. However, the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite differs from its sequel in the sense that takes a vertical orientation as opposed to a horizontal orientation.
Having a vertical orientation makes taking selfies and video calls while holding the tab in a vertical position feel natural, unlike the regular Galaxy A7 that sort of mandates you to hold in a vertical position.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite also happens to bear a smaller 8.7 inch TFT display as opposed to the 10.4-inch display on its predecessor. The resolution of this display is set at 800 x 1340, combined with a resolution of approximately 179 PPI.
On the rear, we have a simple design system that features a single camera and the Samsung branding, which indicates its OEM.
Enthusiasts in the market for this Android tablet will have just two color options and they include Gray and Silver.
The cameras on the Galaxy Tab A7 Lite are basically a reminisce of the regular Galaxy A7, which is true for both the front and rear setup.
On the rear, we have a single 8MP camera capable of shooting videos up to 1080p @ 30fps, while upfront on the selfie side, we have a single 2MP camera.
Hardware and Software
Moving on to the performance side, the Samsung Galaxy A7 Tab A7 Lite replaces the Snapdragon 665 processor on the regular Galaxy tab A7, with the MediaTek Helio P22T.
We also have the PowerVR GE8320 GPU in place of the Adreno 610 GPU on its former. The other performance facilitators include options for either 3GB / 4GB RAM, options for either 32GB or 64GB built-in storage, and a non-removable 5100mAh battery in lieu of the 7040mAh battery on its sequel.
On the software side, we have the One UI 3.1 user interface running on the Andriod 11 operating system.
For connectivity we have a 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB Type-C port, low energy Bluetooth 5.0, WiFi / Hotspot on-board
