An Exynos 1380 chipset from Samsung powers the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 FE and Galaxy Tab S9 FE+.

Samsung Galaxy Buds FE specifications
The Samsung Galaxy Buds FE TWS headset sports a design that appears somewhat similar to its previous Galaxy Buds Plus model with the wing tips. However, they come with one feature that the older model lacked — ANC support.
The FE-branded Galaxy Buds headset offers support for touch controls and supports Samsung's feature that allows it to switch between devices automatically. The wireless headset has an IPX2 rating for splash resistance, which means it should survive light splashes of water.
According to the company, you get up to six hours of battery life with these earphones when ANC is enabled and a total of 21 hours, including the charging case. The Samsung Galaxy Buds FE supports both SBC and AAC audio codecs, suggesting it would work well with iOS and Android smartphones.
