When Samsung revealed the Galaxy Tab S7 FE at the end of last month, it only indicated that the tablet would be available in certain regions from June. Then yesterday, June 10, the company announced that sales had started in Russia.
Most of Samsung’s smartphone and tablet production is concentrated in Vietnam
Samsung was apparently on track to launch slate in South Korea and other markets this month, as evidenced by the fact that it obtained the necessary certification from the National Radio Research Agency (RRA) in may.
Vietnam’s latest coronavirus outbreak hit industrial production centers in the north, including factories in Bac Ninh and Thai Nguyen provinces where Samsung tablets and around half of its smartphones are apparently manufactured.
This is not surprising, given that Slate apparently has the Snapdragon 750G under the hood and we already know that Qualcomm is struggling to keep up with demand. An industry official has reportedly said the tablet will be available in July.
In the UK the price starts at £ 589 (~ $ 833) and in Russia the 64GB model costs 49,990 (~ $ 692). The US price will be expected to fall somewhere in between.
