Samsung Launches Galaxy Tab S7 FE and A7 Lite Tablets

On May 27, Samsung launched its addition to their Galaxy Tab S7 and A7 tablet lineups. The latest refresh to both the series is Tab S7 FE and Tab A7 Lite, respectively. The S7 FE 5G is the lower-tier version of Samsung’s flagship tablet the S7+ as well as S7. While the A7 Lite is also a lower-tier version of Samsung’s medium-budget tablet, the A7.

Just like in the case of Samsung’s FE series phones, the FE (Fan Edition) tag is supposed to signify a cheaper alternative to the flagship devices. While the A7 Lite’s inclusion in the series is most likely for rivaling Lenovo’s budget tablets, which dominates the market in the segment.

The S7 FE houses a 12.4-inch LCD panel, with an aspect ratio of 16:10. The panel runs at the refresh rate of 60Hz compared to the 120Hz refresh rate of the S7+. Surprisingly, the tablet does not have Samsung’s AMOLED display like the rest of the S7 lineup.

The TFT panel runs at 2560X1600 pixels.

SoC, RAM, and Storage

The S7 FE is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 750G SoC. The 750G is a 5G capable mid-tier SoC, compared to the Snapdragon 865 SoC in the other tablets of the S7 lineup.

The octa-core Snapdragon 750G boasts two high-performance Kryo-570 cores clocked at 2.2GHz, while the other six efficiency cores are clocked at 1.8GHz.

It is coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage in its base model, while a higher-tier model with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage is also available. The tablet’s storage can be expanded up to 1TB via the micro-SD card slot.


Galaxy Tab S7 FE runs on One UI 3.1 based on Android 11.


The device houses a 5MP front camera as well as an 8MP rear-facing camera.

The rear camera is capable of recording at 4K 30 FPS.

Battery Life

The tablet comes with a 10,090mAh battery, which supports 45W Fast Charging. However, the tablet comes with a 15W charger in the box and the fast charger needs to be bought separately. The 45W Fast Charger can juice the device to 100% in around 90 minutes.

Samsung claims around 12 hours of web surfing over Wi-FI and LTE.


The S7 FE supports 5G in certain countries and surprisingly comes with Wi-Fi 5, even though the SoC supports Wi-Fi 6. It can be assumed that a future OTA update can bring support for WiFi 6. Furthermore, the device comes with Bluetooth 5.0 instead of 5.1 or 5.2.

The device also has a type-c USB3.2 Gen 1 which can also give display port output.

Unfortunately, there is no 3.5 mm headphone jack in the tablet.

Other features

The speakers are AKG stereo with support for Dolby ATMOS. It also features Dex mode for giving a desktop mode when a keyboard and mouse are attached.

Unlimited free access for Samsung TV Plus.


The tablet comes with an S-Pen stylus in the box. Moreover, a folio “book cover” as well as “Book cover keyboard” is available separately.

Availability and Pricing

The device will be up for grabs in select regions starting in June.

It too comes with One UI 3.1 (Android 11) out of the box.


The device houses a 2MP front camera as well as an 8MP rear-facing camera.
