Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S7 FE will officially launch in the US starting Thursday with a 5G version with a Wi-Fi model expected in a few weeks, the company announced. The specs of a stripped-down FE or “fan edition” version of Samsung’s flagship tablet have been revealed since the tablet listings were posted in stores in Germany in May of last year, but now we have full details on US pricing. availability.
The first version of the Galaxy Tab S7 FE to launch in the US is a 5G model. Starting Thursday, August 5, it will be available to order from AT&T, Verizon and Samsung’s own online stores, starting at $669. According to Samsung, it will be available “forward” to T-Mobile and US Cellular, as well as other retailers. Meanwhile, the price of the Wi-Fi model has been lowered to $529 and will be available from September. Pre-orders for the Wi-Fi version start on Thursday. This compares to a starting price of $649 for the Tab S7 Wi-Fi and $849 for the 5G version.
The biggest advantage of the Tab S7 FE is its large 12.4-inch display, which is the same size as last year’s $849 Tab S7 Plus, but it’s an LCD, not an OLED. Internally, the 5G version of the Tab S7 FE is powered by a Snapdragon 750G, while the Wi-Fi version has a Qualcomm SM7325 chipset. Rounding out the specs is 4GB of RAM, 64GB of extended storage, and a 10,090mAh battery. It has an 8-megapixel camera on the back and a 5-megapixel camera on the front and is oriented so that it sits on top while using the tablet in landscape orientation. An S Pen stylus to aid in taking notes and sketching is also included in the box.
