Samsung has four new unannounced tablets coming right around the corner. But in Samsung’s eagerness to have all the product pages ready ahead of the official unveiling, some marketing material went live on Samsung’s websites today before they were supposed to.
That’s fine with us. What managed to slip through were a couple of images of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 FE tablets, as well as some of the other Fan Edition gear that will launch at the same time, such as the Galaxy S23 FE smartphone, as well as the Galaxy Buds FE earbuds.
Samsung also states underneath one of the images that the Samsung S Pen is included with the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 FE.
The support pages for all of the four upcoming Samsung tablets have been up for a long time already, and even a few of the store pages have started to list, like it has with Samsung Italy.
But I also noticed something else that’s interesting, which is that Samsung has started to describe properties of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 FE tablets in the same sentence as the Tab S9 tablets.
Specifically Samsung underlines on one page that “Cases may not be compatible with the Tab S8 family or Tab S9/S9 FE models.”
The reason why that’s interesting is because we recently wondered why Samsung were launching two 12.4-inch tablets and three tablets that were around 11 inches. Because it would be practical if the accessories for these tablets were cross compatible.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 FE is an 11-inch tablet with 2304 x 1440 resolution display, while the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 FE+ is a 12.4-inch tablet with a 2560 x 1600 resolution display.
They are both running Android 13 and are powered by the octa-core 2.4 GHz Samsung Exynos 1380 processor, with 6GB and 8GB RAM, and optional 5G. They will be launched as cheaper alternatives to the top of the line waterproof Galaxy Tab S9 tablets.
And if you’re interested in buying the Galaxy Buds FE earbuds, you don’t have to wait until launch to find out more about them, since you can download the user manual (PDF) directly from Samsung before their release already.
