We'll be honest, we've completely lost count of all the Android devices Samsung has managed to update to the newest OS version since starting this endeavour roughly six weeks ago. If we had to take a guess, we'd say there are probably about... a gazillion different members of the all-inclusive Galaxy family capable of running stable Android 13 already around the world, ranging from new and old handsets with high and low-end specifications to several premium tablets released in 2022 and 2020.
The latest product to leave Android 12 behind actually doesn't fall into any of those categories, having (discreetly) seen daylight earlier this year with a large 10.4-inch screen and decidedly middling features.
If you're a fan of budget-friendly tablets, you may have recognized the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite (2022) in that description, and you're obviously not wrong.

Unlike a lot of its direct rivals for the title of best budget tablet available today, the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite (2022) also comes with Samsung's rock-solid guarantee of stellar long-term software support, which means you're likely to remain very pleased with your acquisition a good couple of years or so down the line.
