Samsung previews Galaxy Tab S7 FE and Galaxy Tab A7 Lite

Galaxy Tab S7 FE

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE and Galaxy Tab A7 Lite won’t be here for a while. Samsung says, “Availability in the second half of 2021 with pricing and on-sale dates closer to local launches.”

Of course, the Galaxy Tab S7 and S7+ (review here 9.6/10) have been around since August 2020 – the Galaxy Tab S7 FE and Galaxy Tab A7 Lite are new iterations of both.

FE stands for ‘Fan Edition’, and Samsung hopes to repeat the runaway success of the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE smartphone. Here it mixed just the right ingredients for the price. Differences to the Tab S7/S7+ are minor.

The Galaxy Tab A7 series is popular, offering a range of features at more affordable prices – just like its a-series smartphones. The Lite has a slightly larger screen and 3 or 4GB options – go for the latter as it allows Android to run in 64-bit mode.

Galaxy Tab S7 FE and Galaxy Tab A7 Lite offer Australians an exceptional Android experience at a more accessible price. The S7 FE has a larger 12.4-inch display, dual Dolby Atmos speakers, fast charging, 5G option and S Pen in a mid-tier tablet.
