We recently saw the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 and Tab S9 Ultra on Geekbench sporting model designations SM-X716B and SM-X916B, respectively. Now two more Samsung devices believed to be the Galaxy Tab S9 FE/Lite have popped up on Geekbench. One has model code SM-X516B, and another has SM-X616B.
Both devices are powered by the Exynos 1380 SoC and run Android 13. However, SM-X516B has 6GB of RAM onboard while SM-X616B has 8GB. They also have different scores. The SM-X516B scored higher, but these are likely pre-production units, so it’s best to wait for the retail versions to judge their performance.

Whether these devices are the Galaxy Tab S9 FE or Lite is unclear because last year’s Galaxy Tab S8 series didn’t include either, but the Tab S7 lineup had an FE model, while the Tab S6 had a Lite variant.
That said, we know that the Galaxy Tab S9 series includes a Plus version, having model designation SM-X716B. We are yet to see it on Geekbench, but like its vanilla and Ultra counterparts, the Galaxy Tab S9 will likely have the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy at the helm – the same chip that powers the flagship Galaxy S23 series.
