As topic asked.
It looks like OEM unlock (in developers settings) is hidden on US phone models
The last Samsung I made root was S5e and I am wondering is S6L possible

sadly no
Nope, Samsung hasn't even released the stock firmware yet so any development is currently halted

I don't know about unlocking the bootloader. This page (updated in Apr 2020) showed a way https://www.getdroidtips.com/root-sa...y-tab-s6-lite/ to root it. I haven't tried it yet. If anybody tries, please leave some comments.

I managed to unlock the bootloader with the tutorial on http://androidbiits.com/root-samsung...-p610x-easily/, but rooting with the Magisk file failed.
I think i will try it later.
The bootlader is now unlocked, so it gives me a warning on the screen every time i boot the tablet.
I have the P610 version, only WiFi, no LTE

I tried it for the second time and now succeeded.

Installed Titanium Backup and removed some useless system apps.

You can find it here: https://samfrew.com/model/SM-P610/ I found the link in the turorial.
Be aware that this is for P610 (only Wifi), but you can find the firmware for the other versions off the S6 Lite as well on this website.

Hi, thank you very much for reporting it. Do you know if Netflix still works after the unlocking and rooting?
