Galaxy Tab S8 FE Specifications Revealed, Use MediaTek SoC, 4GB RAM


The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 FE appears on Geekbench with the model code SM-X506B. The main specifications of Samsung’s cheap version of the tablet device were also revealed. Seeing its appearance on Geekbench, will this tablet be released this year?

Samsung introduced the Galaxy Tab S7 FE in May 2021, and we expect Samsung to launch its successor, the Galaxy Tab S8 FE at the same time this year.

But that hope didn’t come true, because Samsung only launched the regular Galaxy Tab S8, Plus, and Ultra models. However, the good news is that the Galaxy Tab S8 FE is not cancelled, as it has appeared on Geekbench with its main specs.

Seen on Geekbench with the model code SM-X506B, the Galaxy Tab S8 FE is powered by MediaTek’s MT8791V/TZA chipset, also known as Kompanio 900T. The tablet runs Android 13 and has 4GB of RAM, although there may be more memory options.
