Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite has been unveiled as a new “go-to option” for people looking for an affordable Android tablet. As the name suggests, the Galaxy Tab A7 Lite is a watered-down version of the original Galaxy Tab A7 that debuted in September 2020. The new tablet comes with a metal cover and carries features such as dual speakers with Dolby Atmos and up to 64GB of storage. In addition to the Galaxy Tab A7 Lite, Samsung has officially launched the Galaxy Tab S7 FE as a new option in the Galaxy Tab S7 lineup. The tablet appeared — at least in Germany — with its price and specifications just earlier this week.
Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite price starts at GBP 149 (roughly Rs. 15,300) for the Wi-Fi only variant. There is also the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 (LTE) model that is priced at GBP 179 (roughly Rs. 18,400). The tablet comes in Grey and Silver colour options. Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE, on the other hand, is priced at GBP 589 (roughly Rs. 60,600) for the 4GB + 64GB storage variant and GBP 629 (roughly Rs. 64,700) for the 6GB + 128GB storage model. It comes in Mystic Black, Mystic Silver, Mystic Green, and Mystic Pink colours.
On the availability front, Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite and Galaxy Tab S7 FE both will go on sale in the UK from June 18. The Galaxy Tab S7 FE will also be available for pre-orders in the UK starting June 2. Both Galaxy Tab A7 Lite and Galaxy Tab S7 FE will also debut in other markets next month. However, details about their launch in India are yet to be announced.
Customers purchasing Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 FE are eligible for receiving unlimited access to Samsung TV Plus content streaming service. Both Galaxy Tab S7 FE and Galaxy Tab A7 Lite also come with a free trial of YouTube Premium.
The Galaxy Tab S7 FE initially appeared on the Samsung Germany site earlier this week with a price tag of EUR 649 (roughly Rs. 66,700) for the 4GB + 64GB storage variant.
