Looks like you will have to wait for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 FE

The Galaxy Tab S8 FE will be a watered-down version of the upcoming Galaxy Tab S8.

Highlights
  • The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 FE is expected to arrive late next year.
  • This tablet will be a cheaper version of the upcoming Galaxy Tab S8 tablet.
  • Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy Tab S8 series of tablets in Q1 2022.

According to a new report, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 FE will arrive in Q4 2022. Samsung launched the Galaxy Tab S7 FE earlier this year in May, which was a cheaper variant of the Galaxy Tab S7. The story is the same with the Galaxy Tab S8 FE, a watered-down and cheaper version of the powerful Galaxy Tab S8. The South Korean giant is expected to launch the Galaxy Tab S8 series in Q1 2022. The line-up will include the standard Galaxy Tab S8, the Tab S8+, and the Tab S8 Ultra. The tablets should be launched alongside the upcoming Galaxy S22 series. Here’s what we know about the Galaxy Tab S8 FE.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 FE launch timeline, specifications

The Galaxy Tab S FE is expected to either feature a Snapdragon chipset, or the Exynos 2200. Samsung will reportedly (via) launch this tablet in Q4 2022, but not much else is known about this device. Going by the specifications of the current Galaxy Tab S7 FE, we expect the successor to feature a similar 12.4-inch display, and a large battery with fast charging support. The FE should also offer the latest Galaxy Pen support for easy multitasking. However, it’ll have a slower processor, less RAM, and a less powerful camera system when compared to the standard Galaxy Tab S8.

When comparing the Galaxy Tab S7 with the Galaxy Tab S7 FE, the latter seems like a better deal since it’s priced lower, has a larger screen, bigger battery, and similar build quality. If Samsung does the same with the Galaxy Tab S8 FE, then we would definitely recommend it over the vanilla Galaxy Tab S8. That’s only if you don’t mind a slower processor, lesser RAM/storage, and an inferior camera setup. 

Going by recent rumours and leaks, the Galaxy Tab S8 should get a 120Hz LCD panel, 8GB RAM, 256GB storage, an 8-megapixel front camera, an in-display fingerprint scanner, and a large battery with 45W fast charging support.
