New information regarding the Galaxy Tab S7 series materialized earlier today, suggesting Samsung is doubling down on its 5G bet and developing another variant of the tablet besides the ones already reported last month. What’s more, while the recent change to the company’s product naming practices prompted speculation that the new flagship tablet may be called the Galaxy Tab S20, akin to the rebranding Samsung’s latest Galaxy S smartphones went through, the Galaxy Tab S20 name is far from confirmed. On the contrary, all of the upcoming model are said to be internally referred to as the Galaxy Tab S7.
The 12.4-inch models SamMobile exclusively discovered last month were dubbed the “Galaxy Tab S7 Plus” subseries as per the same report. With that said, nothing is set in stone and it remains to be seen how exactly will the new tablets be marketed as.
The “Galaxy Tab S20” may still launch as the “Galaxy Tab S7”
Assuming Samsung makes that name official, one particular variant’s moniker will be quite a mouthful, with sources now also reporting the existence of the SM-T976B, aka the Galaxy Tab S7 Plus 5G. Samsung already made the jump to this wireless technology with the Galaxy Tab S6 range, but the 5G-ready version of that slate was released exclusively in South Korea earlier this year. The newly reported product designation, on the other hand, indicates international availability, with the aforementioned model likely being on its way to Europe.
Other variants of the series include the Wi-Fi (SM-T970) and 4G (SM-T975) iterations of the 12.4-inch Galaxy Tab S7 Plus, as well as their Galaxy Tab S7 counterparts (SM-T870 and SM-T875) with 11-inch displays. According to the same source, all of the Galaxy Tab S7 devices will unsurprisingly ship with an S Pen, as has been the case with Samsung’s high-end tablets for years now.
The electronics juggernaut is expected to launch the Galaxy Tab S7 this summer, with recent speculation pointing to a debut either alongside the Galaxy Note 20 or in close proximity to it.
