13 July 2021 update: Samsung is bringing the Galaxy Tab S7 FE to Singapore. We've updated this article with its official pricing and availability below.
Samsung adds two new tablet models to the Galaxy Tab lineup, the Galaxy Tab S7 FE and Galaxy Tab A7 Lite.
The Galaxy Tab S7 FE is the first FE-branded tablet after the company introduced the moniker to its Galaxy S20 lineup last year. The Galaxy Tab S7 FE sports a 12.4-inch TFT display (2,560 x1,600 pixels) and runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G. It comes in two options: 4GB RAM with 64GB internal storage and 6GB RAM with 128GB internal storage.
Other specs include Android 11 based OS, an 8MP rear AF camera, 5MP front-facing camera, microSD expansion up to 1TB, 10,090mAh battery with support for 45W Super Fast Charging, USB Type-C, Dual Stereo Speakers sound by AKG and Dolby Atmos.
Like the Galaxy Tab S7 and S7+ it was modelled after, the Galaxy Tab S7 FE includes the S Pen with the tablet. They are functionally similar, right down to the 5G support and same display size. But, the Galaxy Tab S7 FE isn't nearly as pricey as the Tab S7+ at launch. In return, Tab S7 FE has a TFT display instead of AMOLED, and the Fan Edition uses a mid-range chipset instead of the Snapdragon 865+ that was on the Tab S7. The new tablet is also 0.6mm thicker.
Essentially, the Tab S7 FE is a more affordable Tab S7+ where both are 12.4-inch screens.
The Galaxy Tab S7 FE is available in four colours: mystic black, mystic silver, mystic green and mystic pink. A S Pen is also bundled in-box. Samsung offers the Galaxy Tab S7 FE in 5G and LTE variants.
13 July 2021 update: The 5G- capable Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE officially begins retail on 14 July 2021 at major consumer electronics & IT stores, online stores (Samsung Online Store, Shopee), Samsung Education Store as well as Samsung Experience Stores. From 17 July 2021 onwards, it's available at local telcos (M1, Singtel, and StarHub).
From 14 July to 22 August, customers purchasing a Galaxy Tab S7 FE are entitled to a complimentary Book Cover for the tablet, and a 12-month Viu subscription (worth S$224 total). Redemption period for this launch promotion is between 19 July to 5 September. Users who purchase from the Samsung Experience Store and Samsung Online Store will additionally receive a free Superstar Teacher digital learning voucher (worth $300).

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite comes with an 8.7-inch TFT display (1,340 x 800 pixels), an octa-core processor and Android 11.
Other specs include 4/6GB RAM options, 64/128GB internal storage options, microSD expansion up to 1TB, an 8MP rear AF camera, a 2MP front-facing camera, a 5,100mAh battery, KTE connectivity, and USB Type-C.
