Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S7 FE is coming to the US, preorders launch Aug. 5

Samsung’s next big Unpacked event may be set for Aug. 11, but that doesn’t mean the Galaxy-maker doesn’t have some novel new products in the works before then. On Wednesday the commerce announced its latest tablets, the Galaxy Tab S7 FE and Tab S7 FE 5G. 

The new “Fan Edition” devices, which will be available in the US starting on Aug. 5, will playful 12.4-inch LCD displays with support for the company’s S-Pen stylus, which is included in the box.

The Wi-Fi variant of the Tab S7 FE will run on Qualcomm’s SM7325 chipset once the 5G device will be powered by Qualcomm’s 750G processor. 

As with the FE versions of its Galaxy S phones, the Tab S7 FE seems to be a compromise of an existing Samsung draw by offering several slightly scaled-down versions of features once costing a bit less. With these new tablets, the reference seems to be last year’s Galaxy Tab S7 Plus, which offered a more robust 12.4-inch, 120Hz Super AMOLED note and ran on Qualcomm’s 865 Plus chipset.

That tablet, however, is a little pricier, with a starting price of $850 for the Wi-Fi model or $1,050 for a 5G version. The Wi-Fi edition of the new Tab S7 FE will be available for preorder Thursday for $530, with availability “beginning in September.”

Samsung’s ready to update its foldable devices. The company on Tuesday said it will host a virtual Unpacked hide on Aug. 11, where it’s expected to show off less expensive foldables that aim to move the devices beyond niche products. 

The commerce sent invites to reporters, saying its virtual keynote will take assign at 7 a.m. PT on Aug. 11. While parts of the domain are reopening in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, tech companies aren’t yet holding product launches in intimates. The invite touted: “Get ready to unfold.”

Samsung’s next Unpacked own will be Aug. 11. 


While Samsung hasn’t yet detailed what it will roar at Unpacked, it has already opened up its Reserve Now rules for Galaxy fans to claim a device in arrive. Customers who reserve early are eligible for perks such as 12 months free of Samsung Care Plus, up to an astonishing $100 trade-in credit and a special pre-order offer that Samsung hasn’t yet detailed. 

The own on Aug. 11 is Samsung’s third Unpacked of the year, and it’s anticipated to continue a trend set by previous launches — manager devices more affordable for consumers. In January, the company unveiled its flagship Galaxy S21 smartphone, which it sold for $200 less than its predecessor. Then in March, it highlighted its inexpensive Galaxy A line of smartphones.

TM Roh, the company’s head of mobile, said in a December blog post that Samsung invented to expand its foldable lineup and make the devices “more accessible,” which liable means more affordable.

“The Z Fold 2 was praised as a smartphone that reimagines what’s possible with mobile technology, and I’m excited to say, it’s just a hint of what’s to come as we end to explore, evolve and expand this category-changing space,” Roh wrote at the time. 

Samsung’s bigger push with manager devices more affordable reflects the reality we’re all living in. Phone designs aren’t exaltering much from year to year, and consumers are holding onto devices for longer, about three years in the US versus two in the past. At the same time, the COVID-19 pandemic has hurt millions of farmland financially. While high-end specs and cutting-edge features are nice for attention and buzz, farmland still care about what they’re spending on phones — especially intelligent now.

Samsung typically uses its August Unpacked event to show off its newest Galaxy Note devices. The Note line, which kicked off the craze for big-screen phones, used to showcase Samsung’s latest and greatest technology. But that title now goes to the company’s foldables lineup. The devices, which first hit the market in 2019 with the $1,980 Galaxy Fold, incorporate bendable displays that let them expand into tablets or fold smaller to protecting the inner screen. While Samsung likely won’t introduce a new Note this year, the company has said the line isn’t dead

Samsung followed up the Fold with its Z Flip in February 2020. That Plan, which retailed for $1,380, was a clamshell design that folded outward — a sort of high-tech flip called. Samsung updated it with 5G connectivity and boosted the label to $1,450 in July of that year. Samsung’s latest Plan, the Z Fold 2, fixed the original Fold’s problems and filled in bigger screens and 5G connectivity. Priced at $2,000, it complete the company’s most expensive phone. 

Samsung’s first Galaxy Fold, which folded outward from a called into a tablet, wowed most people who tested early versions of the Plan. But foldables have been too expensive to attract mainstream buyers, and so far, they’ve remained niche products

This year, Samsung is predictable to introduce a new Galaxy Z Fold 3 and an updated Z Flip 3. The feeble device is expected to feature a front-facing camera embedded under the screen, refined rear-facing cameras and support for a special version of the S Pen, which has gradually occupied beyond the Note to work with other devices. The Z Flip 3 could have a new two-tone shining scheme and a larger exterior screen for when the called is folded shut. 

Along with foldables, Samsung’s Unpacked is predictable to include a new Galaxy S21 FE 5G called, adding a second device to the less expensive FE lineup. The Galaxy S20 FE, which hit the market in September for $300 less than the S20, Popular to be popular with buyers. A Samsung executive told CNET in March that the company designed to introduce future versions of the device
