The South Korean tech giant, Samsung launches two new Galaxy tablets – the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE 5G and Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite. With rumors flying all around, it is finally time we officially see the Galaxy Tab S7 FE 5G.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE 5G
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE 5G borrows most of its specs from either the Tab S7 and Tab S7 Plus, featuring a 12.4” LCD with 2,560 x 1,600 px (16:10), and runs at the traditional 60Hz refresh rate.
Recall that the Tab S7+ comes with a 12.4” sAMOLED display panel with a 120Hz refresh rate, and the Tab S7 packs an 11.0” LCD panel with a 120Hz display. The Galaxy Tab S7 FE 5G borrows the S7+ 12.4” and S7’s LCD panel.
It arrives with an 8-megapixels camera sensor on the back with autofocus and supports 4K/30 fps video recording and lacks the Tab S7 series’s ultra-wide camera and features a 5-megapixels front camera came with fixed focus.
With the Fixed focus feature, the front camera will allow you to easily track your face during a video call to make sure you’re always in the center. As expected, it also lacks a 3.5mm headphone jack and NFC support.
There is the support for AKG stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos support, 5G connectivity, Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.0, and GPS+GLONASS, Beidou, Galile. Its USB-C port is wired for 3.2 Gen 1 speeds.
The Galaxy Tab S7 FE 5G is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G processor, clocking at an Octa-core 2×2.2GHz + 6×1.8GHz processor count. It runs on Android 11 with One UI 3.1 out of the box.
It is available in two memory configurations, 4GB RAM with 64GB storage and 6GB RAM with 128GB storage, and comes with memory expansion up to ITB through a dedicated MicroSD slot.
As expected and similar to another tab in the series, there is an included S Pen, which you can use for note-taking and drawing. With Samsung Notes, you can easily convert your on-screen handwritten notes to text.
The One UI also supports DeX mode, allowing you to use the desktop-like experience, and usually goes with anything similar to the Book Cover Keyboard, as far as it is any Bluetooth keyboard and mouse.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE 5G features the sleek and stylish metal finish of the Tab S7 line and comes in four gorgeous colors – Mystic Black, Mystic Silver, Mystic Green, and Mystic Pink.
The huge 10,090mAh battery comes with fast charging up to 45W, which can easily charge the battery from 0-100% in 90 minutes, and a 15W adapter in the box. With a full charge, you can get 12 hours of web browsing over Wi-Fi/4G.
Galaxy Tab S7 FE 5G first appeared in Russia, but available in only LTE connectivity. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE 5G will be available in Europe from Samsung.com, starting at £590 for the 4GB/64GB and £630 for the 6GB/128GB option.
Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite
The company also added the Galaxy Tab A7 Lite to its Galaxy TAB line, it is the souped-down version of the Galaxy Tab A7 10.4 (2020). The Lite version is smaller and also cheaper than the original Tab A7.
The Galaxy Tab A7 Lite completely made out of metal, 8.0mm thick with slim bezels, weighs 366g (Wi-Fi), 371g (LTE), and comes with an 8.7” LCD with 1,340 x 800 px resolution (15:9).
It is powered by MediaTek Helio P22T chipset (MT8768T), with eight Cortex-A53 cores and a PowerVR GE8320 GPU. It starts at 3GB RAM and 32GB storage, and 4GB RAM / 64GB storage and both are expandable up to ITB via microSD cards.
Might not be that significant, but the 8-megapixels camera on the back with autofocus and 1080p/30 fps alongside a 2-megapixels front-facing camera with a fixed focus for video recording might do the job.
The Galaxy Tab A7 Lite is available in both Wi-Fi and the 4G versions, these have Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.0, and GPS. There is no NFC and it does have a 3.5 mm headphone jack. It comes with powerful Dual Speakers with Dolby Atmos.
It comes with a 5,100mAh battery, which can be charged over USB-C at 15W, and since the USB-C port is wired only for 2.0 speeds, you won’t get the display out, which removes the DeX mode feature.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite will be available in Europe from Samsung.com starting in mid-June. It starts at £150 for the Wi-Fi and £180 for the 4G LTE option. Understand that not all countries are getting the LTE version.
