The Galaxy Tab S9 FE may no longer be so budget-friendly according to new leaks

Whenever Samsung releases a Fan Edition (FE) of a device, they downgrade a lot of the hardware so it can be sold at a significantly lower price. That pattern may soon change as a recent leak states the upcoming Galaxy Tab S9 FE may not see a huge price drop compared to its base model. 

This information comes from notable industry leaker Roland Quandt on X (or Twitter if you prefer) who claims a Wi-Fi only Tab S9 FE sporting 6GB RAM and 128GB of storage will cost 63,000 INR (Indian Rupee). Converted into USD, that’s about $760. This means the downgraded tablet could cost just $40 less than the standard Galaxy Tab S9 at its lowest price point and $60 more than the Galaxy Tab S8. Ironically enough, the Tab S9 has the overall better hardware. This may come as a shock to people wanting to try out Samsung’s next gen tablets without having to pay a high cost. If these leaks come true, you’re probably better off getting the Tab S8 instead. 

Dubious claim
