During Samsung’s next ultra-high-end iPad Pro alternatives are still largely secret, so it’s unlikely to break cover anytime soon, as we expected Several Lite brand Android slates beat that The Galaxy Tab S8 (and presumably the Tab S8 +) has been out on the market for quite some time.
As it turns out, at least one of these fast-approaching (upper) mid-range models may end up being given a different name, as evidenced by some of the new Google Play Console lists discovered by the eagle-eyed folks that were always spotted at MySmartPrice.
Optional 5G, high resolution display and a mediocre processor
There’s a good reason Samsung is reportedly planning to make a big fuss about this Galaxy S21 FE announcement likely scheduled for August 19th, and it would be rather unwise not to try and divert some of that attention to the tech giant’s tablet range.
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, this seems like a more than decent rival for Apple’s 10.9-inch iPad Air (2020) and the increasingly affordable Lenovo Tab P11 Pro.
This undoubtedly affordable Android tablet will apparently contain a Snapdragon 750 SoC (also known as the Qualcomm SM7225). So you should by no means expect that the iPad Pros released in 2021 will be given a chance in the raw materials department.
In case you’re wondering, the Snapdragon 750 is currently in budget 5G phones like the one Galaxy A42 and A52, which gives us hope that the Galaxy Tab S7 FE won’t drive the excellent base price of $ 350 for the Exynos 9611-powered Tab S6 Lite over the roof.
Obviously, this may not apply to the 5G-enabled variant, especially with an improved screen resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels even in tow (for both 5G and non-5G models). Impressive, that will equate the Tab S7 FE with the 11-inch “normal” one. Tab S7 in terms of display technology, which is no small matter for a (upper) mid-ranger.
But what about the Galaxy Tab S7 XL Lite?
While this overly convoluted name looked Set in stone just a few days ago, we now tend to believe Samsung merely considered various branding options at different stages of the production and commercial preparation of this bad boy before finally settling on the more logical moniker.
Perhaps the better question is, “Are we going to see a Galaxy Tab S7 XL FE (or Tab S7 + FE) soon?” The answer, as far as we can tell, is likely not because the Tab S7 FE is the Tab S7 XL FE.
Although it’s essentially impossible to guess the exact price of such an … unusual product, with a mix of mid- and high-end specs and which looks like a very similar design to that of the Galaxy Tab S7 and Tab S7 +, we’re keeping our fingers crossed for something on the order of $ 400 and up.
