Samsung have today announced two brand new tablets to their range, the Samsung Tab S7 FE 5G (long name I know) and the smaller 8.7 inch Samsung Tab A7 Lite.
These did leak over the past few weeks, however today we had the official confirmation with a full press release outlining the specifications and availability of both.
With tablet sales on the up every year as customers find new ways of enjoying entertainment and using mobile products for business, Samsung are making sure they are keeping up with the improvements on technology such as improving performance and adding 5G networking for super fast downloads on the move.
Both tablets go on sale in the UK this June with networks expected to pick up the FE 5G model and offer monthly payments when you sign up to a contract, although pricing and availability of this is yet to be confirmed.
Below is the full press release sent over today by Samsung.
