Samsung’s Tab S9 Series arrived on July 26. And the Fan Edition (FE) iterations are here as well. The Tab S9 FE and FE Plus bear toned-down specs from the flagship Tab S9 series. And amongst the two, the vanilla variant is now official in Nepal. In this article, we’ll talk about the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 FE, its specs, availability, and expected price in Nepal.
Samsung Tab S9 FE Series Overview:
Design and Display
Starting off with the design, the Tab S9 FE Series shares the same visual aesthetics. Taking cues from the flagship Tab S9 siblings, Samsung has also provided an IP68 rating for both the Tab S9 FE and FE Plus. Both tabs are available in four color options: Gray, Mint, Silver, and Lavender. And interestingly, you get a S Pen stylus bundled in the box.
On the display side of things, the vanilla S9 FE boasts a 10.9-inch display with 2304 x 1440 pixels resolution. The Plus version goes for a bigger 12.4-inch panel at 2560 x 1600 resolution. Unlike the Tab S9 Series, you get LCD panels on both tablets with a 90Hz refresh rate. Likewise, there is a Vision Booster which enhances the outdoor visibility.
Under the hood, the Fan Edition S9 tabs house an in-house Exynos 1380 chipset. This 5nm fabbed SoC powers the recently released Samsung Galaxy F54. It features four Cortex A78 cores running at 2.4GHz and four Cortex A55 cores clocking at 2.0GHz. Handling the graphics is a Mali G68 MP5 GPU.
Meanwhile, there are two variants for both siblings. The vanilla S9 FE arrives with 6/128GB and 8/256GB options, while the Plus model is available with 8/128GB and 12/256GB trims. Nonetheless, you can expand the storage via a microSD card. On the software side, the tabs boot on OneUI 5.1, built on top of Android 13.
Getting to the optics, the Plus version sports a dual camera setup on the rear side— 8MP primary + 8MP ultrawide units. While the vanilla variant bears a single 8MP main camera. For selfies and video calls, both tabs rely on a 12MP ultrawide front-facing camera with a 120˚ field of view (FoV).
Battery and Others
Moving on, the Tab S9 FE and FE+ are powered by 8000mAh and 10090mAh batteries, respectively, with 45W fast charging support. Furthermore, the tablets feature a side-mounted fingerprint sensor and a dual speaker setup. Connectivity options include 5G (Only on the cellular variant), WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.3, and a USB Type-C port.
