The Galaxy Tab S7 FE is finally more than just a bunch of rumours, marking the first time when the South Korean tech giant launches a Fan Edition tablet.
Though it can’t replace the Galaxy Tab S6 or S7+, as stated by OpticFlux, it returned some impressive results when compared to the Galaxy Tab S6.
There are so many similarities between the two that many people are wondering if the new can replace the old or they have to rely on the former flagship.
The main problem is software. The Galaxy Tab S6 was introduced with Android Pie, and it received an update to Android 11 and One UI 3.1, but it won’t get any other updates after Android 12.
Therefore, the newer S7 FE sounds like a more reasonable choice, as it ships with Android 11 and One UI 3.1, and it will certainly be updated to Android 14 in the future.
As for performance, Samsung’s new tablet impressed numerous critics, maybe even more than the Tab S6 ever did. It features a 3-app Multi-Active Window mode plus split-screen mode, and it also works in Second Screen mode, making it work as a secondary display for Windows 10 computers.
It’s obviously meant to be a high-productivity device, and that may attract the attention of numerous buyers.
Neither of those features is available on the Galaxy Tab S6.
However, on the other hand, the S6 offers wireless DeX support, while the FE can only offer wired connectivity.
However, we feel like that isn’t a solid reason to pick the older model over the new one, which has many more valuable features.
