The Galaxy S20 FE, Samsung’s first Fan Edition phone (second, if you count the Galaxy Note Fan Edition, which was a result of Samsung reusing components from the discontinued Galaxy Note 7), was a huge success last year, and to build on that success, the Korean giant launched its first Fan Edition tablet, the Galaxy Tab S7 FE. The Tab S7 FE takes features from both the Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Tab S7+ and downgrades a few key aspects to target a lower price.
The Galaxy Tab S7 FE’s design is more or less an exact duplicate of the Galaxy Tab S7 and Tab S7+. The display up front is surrounded by metal on the sides and the back, and the tablet is also just as sleek as its flagship cousins at 6.3 mm. The back has a magnetic groove for holding the S Pen, which comes bundled with the tablet and is not a separate purchase. There are a few changes, however, such as the cut down from four speakers to two, though they still support Dolby Atmos and have been tuned by AKG.
The Galaxy Tab S7 FE is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G processor. It comes in two memory variants: 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage or 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. MicroSD expansion is included as well, with the tablet supporting up to 1TB cards.
The Tab S7 FE is powered by a gigantic 10,090 mAh battery, just like the Galaxy Tab S7+, and supports 45W super fast charging (but comes with a 15W charger in the box in most markets). It also comes with the S Pen, as mentioned earlier, and you get it in both LTE and 5G variants. However, the tablet misses out on any form of fingerprint scanning.
The Galaxy Tab S7 FE has a 12.4-inch display up front. The size has carried over from the Galaxy Tab S7+, but Samsung has left out attractive features like a high refresh rate and has used an LCD panel. The display is fairly sharp, though, thanks to a resolution of 2560×1600 pixels.
The Galaxy Tab S7 FE has single front and rear camera setups. The rear camera is an 8-megapixel sensor that supports autofocus, while selfies and video calls are handled by a fixed-focus 5MP lens. For comparison, both the Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Tab S7+ feature dual rear cameras.
The Galaxy Tab S7 FE comes with Android 11 and One UI 3.1 out of the box. The software includes all of the features that make the flagship Tab S7 and Tab S7+ so special, including Dex mode that gives you a desktop interface right on the tablet screen. The Tab S7 FE also supports Multi-Active Window, which allows multitasking with up to three apps on the screen at the same time. There’s also Second Screen, which lets the Tab S7 FE be used as a second display for a PC.
Price and availability
The Galaxy Tab S7 FE releases in the month of June in select markets. Pricing starts at €649 for the 5G variant with 64GB of storage and 4GB of RAM. Color options include Mystic Black, Mystic Silver, Mystic Green, and Mystic Pink.
