Samsung launched the Galaxy Tab S7 and the S7+ last year as an alternative to Apple’s iPad Pro in the premium tablet market. The Galaxy Tab S7 series boasts high refresh rate displays, flagship-grade chipsets, and many other advanced features. And today, following earlier leaks, Samsung has expanded the Tab S7 lineup with the launch of the Galaxy Tab S7 FE.
The company quietly launched the device in Germany. It has shown up on Samsung’s German website, without a keynote or blog post. Moreover, the Galaxy Tab S7 FE is not an upgrade or on par with its predecessors. It is essentially an affordable 5G-supported tablet from Samsung. And, the FE (Fan Edition) branding suggests that the company is aiming to unify its smartphone and tablet lineup, with value-for-money products under one category.
Now, with these things aside, let’s take a look at the key specs and features of the device itself, shall we?
