Samsung has decided not to release the Galaxy S22 FE, but it looks like they won’t settle for a fan version of the Galaxy Tab S8. Recently, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 FE appeared on the Geekbench website, confirming its existence.
A new tablet from the Korean tech giant is all set to join the Galaxy Tab S8 series lineup very soon. The lineup, which comprises three models – Tab S8, Tab S8+, and Tab S8 Ultra – was introduced earlier this year alongside the Galaxy S22 smartphone.

According to GalaxyClub, the upcoming device, which has been in development for quite some time, is progressing slowly for some reason. The model number of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 FE is SM-X506B and its Geekbench listing reveals some of its key specifications.
The Galaxy Tab S8 FE will be powered by the Mediatek MT8791V chipset, also known as the Kompanio 900T chip. This processor packs two Cortex-A78 CPU cores, six energy-efficient Cortex-A55 cores, and a Mali-G68 graphics chip. Furthermore, the benchmark says that the tablet has 4GB of RAM.
The Geekbench listing reveals that the device will run the latest Android 13-based One UI 5 software system. This shows that the launch of the new tablet is still a few months away. It looks like the company will introduce this device in early 2023.
Also, the next tablet will have the latest Android OS and better benchmark scores than the previous tablet, the Galaxy Tab S7 FE, which was powered by the Snapdragon 750G. This new tablet will fit nicely into the category of “FE” or “Lite” versions of the Galaxy Tab S8.
