What's the difference between the Galaxy S6 tab and the Galaxy S6 tab LTE (or is it Galaxy S6 tab Lite)?

I'm interested in purchasing a Galaxy S6 tablet with either 128GB or 256GB storage but am being confused at the different versions of this tablet sellers have on offer. In particular there seems to be a model described simply as Samsung Galaxy S6 tablet and another model usually described as Samsung Galaxy S6 LTE tablet. Just to further confuse the issue there are some sellers who describe there being also a model they call Samsung Galaxy S6 Lite tablet. Are the LTE  and Lite  the same model or different models - I wish sellers would agree? Nowhere can I find a straightforward explanation of what the difference is between all these. To add to the confusion between sellers, sometimes the LTE  / Lite  are shown as significantly more expensive than the straight  Samsung Galaxy S6 tablet yet sometimes the prices are the other way around.

Can someone please tell me what are the differences between all these similarly names tablets in terms of features from a users point of view?

OK, so here is an example of Amazon's offer:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-Galaxy-Wi-Fi-10-5-Inch-Tablet/dp/B07W7TQSHM/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&key...

  • The first thing I noticed is that the headline mentions: Samsung Galaxy Tab S6, and further down it gives options of LTE or Wifi. Yet on other Galaxy 6 tab pages Amazon refers to a Lite option. Back to my original question: are the LTE and Lite the exact same model and, if so, why do sellers keep changing the name from one to the other?
  • In the world of products that I am familiar with, when a product has a "standard" and "lite" version it is usual for the "lite" version to have fewer facilities (and be cheaper) than the "standard". But your answer seems to contradict this: you are suggesting the Galaxy lite offers more facilities, viz a sim card which the standard apparently doesn't have. This is quite different from most other product offerings where lite offer less. Yet using my Amazon example, the one with the extra facilities (Lite) is actually the same price offer as the other and many other sellers seem to charge less for the Lite. So is there anything lacking in the facilities of the Lite as against the Wifi?

I am interested in the different facilities offered to me as a potential user of the product that differentiates the different models.  Whether I am a personal customer, business customer, government customer is of no relevance at all to my question. Please tell me what different user facility, or facilities,  (regardless of what type of customer I might be) the LTE/Lite offers me as a user compared to the non LTE/Lite version of the Galaxy S6 tablet?

S6 Tablet LTE & allows you to use a SIM to connect to a mobile network.

This is the same for the S6 Lite LTE also.

The S6 Tablet WiFi only has capability to join a WiFi network or a mobile phone hotspot.

This again is them similar for the S6 Lite WiFi model.

Hence these are 4 different models with the Litr based models normally being cheaper as the displays, CPU & RAM (not storage space for user date) are normally lower spec to the standard S6 models.
