Fan Edition coming also for Samsung Galaxy Tab S7, after a happy debut for FE products with Samsung Galaxy S20 FE in late 2020 and waiting for a likely Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, which is yet to arrive. To tell the truth, the first Samsung "FE" had been the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7, with Samsung trying in 2017 to save the salvage of a project born evidently askew.

Then three years of hiatus until Samsung Galaxy S20 FE, product in focus both in terms of hardware and in terms of price and that for this has received cross appreciation from both insiders and the public. Now Samsung tries to replicate in the tablet segment the success of a lucky suffix, with the debut of Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE which was made official a few hours ago on the German portal. An announcement curiously occurred with the spotlight off, passed almost in silence. An unusual choice, perhaps due to a still imperfect availability of units of Galaxy Tab S7 FE necessary to cover all markets where Samsung plans to sell it, but that waiting to know more about the marketing does not prohibit us to analyze the contents.

The novelties of Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE

The philosophy espoused by the Korean designers for Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE is the one known: give up some technical features while maintaining a general plant of good level in order to gain that margin on costs that allows you to offer a lower price.

The most obvious feature of Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE is the display, a 12.4-inch IPS LCD panel with a resolution of 2,560 x 1,600 pixels and refresh rate "standard" of 60 Hz. No choice on the amount of memory that in this way is fixed for all on 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory, which, however, is expandable via microSD.

It is speculated that in the future Samsung could also offer a variant with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory, but it is precisely a hypothesis at the time without official confirmation. Important the absence of NFC in theme of connectivity that remains good level, with support for 5G networks, dual band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5, GPS and a USB-C input.

Important the capacity of the battery: 10,900 mAh that according to Samsung are enough to reach 12 hours of battery life even with active cellular data network, values that if they were to find confirmation in the facts would be very interesting for different customer profiles.

Another interesting aspect of Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE is the presence of the S Pen, the popular pen of Samsung that has become known with the devices of the Galaxy Note line. Also present is support for Samsung DeX, a system that allows you to transform the tablet into a PC by simply connecting it to a monitor.

Two colors available at launch, Mystic Black and Mystic Silver. In Germany the price reads 649 euros, a figure that could also be slightly higher if Samsung decides to market Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE also in Italy.
