    Samsung treated its flagship tablet series a little bit differently this year and unveiled two top-tier slates at the same event. The Galaxy Tab S7 is the base variant whereas the Galaxy Tab S7+ can easily be considered Samsung’s greatest tablet to date. But is it good enough to warrant an upgrade from the Galaxy Tab S6? Only one way to find out, so let’s have a look at how the Galaxy Tab S7+ compares to the Galaxy Tab S6 side-by-side.

    So many things have changed for the Galaxy Tab S tablet series over the course of one year that it would be easier to point out the very few similarities between last year’s model and the Galaxy Tab S7+, so here they are: same 13MP+5MP / 8MP cameras, same 6GB+128GB / 8GB/256GB memory configuration, same quad speakers and in-display fingerprint sensors.

    Galaxy Tab S7+ versus Galaxy Tab S6: Everything else

    As warranted by a new generation of tablets, the Galaxy Tab S7+ uses Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 865+ SoC instead of the Snapdragon 855 solution. The tablet is also 5G enabled in markets that support it, while the Galaxy Tab S6 is limited to LTE, as we all know.

    Outside of that, the Galaxy Tab S7+ brings about a larger 12.4-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2800 by 1752 and, more importantly, 120Hz refresh rate. The Galaxy Tab S6 has a 60Hz display which means that moving objects can look twice as smooth on the Galaxy Tab S7+ screen.

    The larger display also led to a larger battery clocking in at 10,090mAh, up from the Galaxy Tab S6’s 7,040mAh battery. To compensate for the larger battery and therefore the longer recharge times, Samsung is also bringing 45W super fast charging capabilities to its flagship tablet series for the first time.

    Other details include a better S Pen with lower latency – a perfect enhancement for the high refresh rate display – and the complementary Samsung Notes app that saw significant improvements. The Galaxy Tab S7+ is also compatible with the new wireless DeX mode, but these features will likely be added to the Galaxy Tab S6 via firmware updates sooner or later. Speaking of which, the Galaxy Tab S7+ ships with Android 10 and One UI 2.5 out-of-the-box.

    For a closer look at how the Galaxy Tab S7+ compares versus the Galaxy Tab S6, check our new online comparison tool where you can pit up to four Galaxy devices against each other for the ultimate spec battle.

    Do you think upgrading from the Galaxy Tab S6 to the Galaxy Tab S7+ is worth it? We think it’s worth considering especially if you can exchange the older model in favor of a discount on the newer solution. However, we haven’t made up our minds entirely on the Galaxy Tab S7+, but our review should be coming soon. Stay tuned.
