Samsung’s Next Big Tablet Will Have A “Actual Name,” An LCD Screen, And A “Great Pen Experience”

What follows a high-end Galaxy Tab family that includes three iPad Pro-rivaling members for the first time? Of course, the Tab S9 trio will consist of “vanilla,” “Plus,” and “Ultra” variants, but not before Samsung reportedly launches a new mid-range alternative to Apple’s latest “standard” iPad with a 10.9-inch screen.

The presumably low-cost Android slate was always expected to be called the Galaxy Tab S8 FE, but that name is now pretty much set in stone thanks to a well-connected insider who is almost never wrong about these things.

Roland Quandt also has a few other intriguing details to share ahead of an official Tab S8 FE announcement, which is expected in early 2023. Specifically, it appears that the (somewhat) mysterious device benchmarked a few months ago under the SM-X506B model number and “Birdie” codename is indeed the Galaxy Tab S8 FE, which means that the Snapdragon 778 processor inside last year’s Tab S7 FE will almost certainly be replaced with a MediaTek Kompanio 900T.

That’s a pretty… unusual choice for a mainstream tablet that’s almost certainly going to be released in the United States (as well as many other markets around the world), but for what it’s worth, the “pen experience” on the Galaxy Tab S8 FE is said to be absolutely “great.”

Not just great by mid-range standards, mind you; with a Wacom digitizer, S Pen speed and responsiveness will be improved to levels comparable to the state-of-the-art Galaxy S22 Ultra and Tab S8 lineup.

Remember that the Tab S7 FE includes a built-in stylus but lacks (at least to our knowledge) super-advanced Wacom digitizer technology. Unfortunately, the Tab S8 FE is expected to retain its predecessor’s LCD screen technology rather than featuring an ultra-high-quality AMOLED panel, with… well, pretty much everything else still under wraps.

All of these early indications point to a very reasonable price for the LCD and MediaTek-powered Galaxy Tab S8 FE with an S Pen, though it’s probably best not to speculate on exact figures just yet.
