Galaxy Tab S7 FE release date may have been pushed back

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.

It will be at least a month before the tablet becomes widely available if a new report from a South Korean exit (via SamMobile) is to be believed.
The publication says that the production of the Tab S7 FE has been derailed by the global chip shortage and a new wave of Covid cases in Vietnam.

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.

The chip shortage also continues to be a problem. Earlier it was reported that the release of Samsung’s new mid-range phones, the Galaxy A52 and A72 have been delayed in various markets due to the issue. And now it has spread to the Galaxy Tab S7 FE.

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.

The Tab S7 FE is a slimmed down version of last year’s Galaxy Tab S7. the The Android tablet has a 12.4-inch screen, an 8 MP rear camera, a 5 MP front snapper and a 10,090 mAh battery. It comes with the S Pen stylus and will be available in 4GB / 64GB and 6G / 128GB variants with the option to expand storage up to 1TB.

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.
