While Samsung’s next ultra-high-end Alternatives to the iPad Pro are still largely hidden in secrecy and are therefore unlikely to break coverage in the near future, we have expected more Lite-branded Android slate to beat Galaxy Tab S8 (and presumably Tab S8 +) for marketing for some time now.
As it turns out, at least one of these fast-paced (top) mid-range models may eventually get a different name, according to a few revealing new Google Play Console lists found by the ever-eagle-eyed over to MySmartPrice
Optional 5G, high-resolution display and an intermediate processor
Since the 2020s Galaxy Tab S6 Lite took off its branding cue Galaxy S10 Lite and note 10 Lite handsets released earlier that year make sense Galaxy Tab S7 FE and Tab S7 FE 5G to follow the example of the incredible success Galaxy S20 FE and S20 FE 5G.
There’s a good reason why Samsung reportedly plans to make a big fuss over it Galaxy S21 FE announcement likely scheduled for August 19, and it would be quite unwise not to try to transfer some of that attention to the technology giant’s tablet lineup.
Of course, the design, specs and features of the Galaxy Tab S7 FE (5G) are far more important than its marketing name, and at least on paper, it looks like it could be a more than decent rival to Apple’s 10.9-inch. iPad Air (2020) and the increasingly affordable Lenovo Tab P11 Pro.
This undoubtedly reasonably priced Android tablet will apparently pack a Snapdragon 750 SoC (also known as Qualcomm SM7225), so by no means should you expect it to give the 2021-released iPad pros a run for their money in the raw power department.
If you’re wondering, the Snapdragon 750 is currently available in such budget-friendly 5G phones as Galaxy A42 and A52, which makes us hopeful that the Galaxy Tab S7 FE will not run the excellent $ 350 base price of the Exynos 9611-powered Tab S6 Lite through the roof.
Clearly, this may not be the case for the 5G-enabled variant, especially with an improved screen resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels also on tow (for both 5G and non-5G models). Impressive, it will bring the Tab S7 FE on par with the 11-inch “regular” Tab S7 in terms of display technology, which is not a small feat for a (top) mid-ranger.
But what about the Galaxy Tab S7 XL Lite?
While the overly intricate name looked largely etched in stone a few days ago, we are now inclined to believe Samsung simply considered several branding options at different stages of this bad boy’s production and commercial preparation before finally deciding on the more logical moniker.
Maybe the better question is “will we also see a Galaxy Tab S7 XL FE (or Tab S7 + FE) released anytime soon?” The answer, as far as we can see, is probably not because, well, the S7 FE tab is tabs S7 XL FE.
Confused a lot? To be honest, we are too, but when we look at the information available right now, we think Samsung is ready to reveal a single large Galaxy Tab S7 FE model (literally and figuratively) with a screen size of 12.4 inches, 4 GB of RAM (at least to begin with), built-in S Pen support and lightning fast 45W charging functions.
Although it is essentially impossible to guess the exact price point of such a … unusual product with a mix of medium and advanced specifications and what looks like a very similar design as the Galaxy Tab S7 and Loss S7 +, we keep our fingers crossed for something in the direction of $ 400 and above.
