Samsung hasn’t given up on launching flagship Android tablets. It’s among the last few manufacturers that still make these flagship tablets. Samsung significantly improved its offering last year with the Galaxy Tab S6 and fans are now looking forward to its successor.
The Galaxy Tab S7 will most likely be what Samsung ends up calling the tablet. Going by the reports that we have seen so far, Samsung will be shaking things up for its flagship tablet series this year by launching it in two different screen sizes.
We have exclusively revealed already that the Galaxy Tab S7 is going to be available in two different sizes with 12.4-inch and 11-inch displays respectively. As far as the design is concerned, we can expect it to have a premium build with slim bezels and an overall svelte profile.
Since its predecessor came with an S Pen, it goes without saying that the Galaxy Tab S7 will feature one as well. The Galaxy Tab S6 had a groove at the back for the S Pen and there’s a good chance that this design element will be retained for the Galaxy Tab S7.
Samsung always used to launch new flagship tablets with older generation CPUs. It finally put an end to this last year as the Galaxy Tab S6 came with the Snapdragon 855, the very same processor that was found in 2019’s Galaxy S10 flagship series.
There’s a good chance that the company will be doing something similar for its upcoming tablet lineup. So expect it to feature the Snapdragon 865. There should be at least 8GB of RAM in addition to 128/256GB storage options. The tablet should also feature a microSD card slot, dual rear cameras, AKG-tuned quad speakers with Dolby Atmos support, an in-display fingerprint sensor and 5G support.
The battery capacity of the smaller model is unknown. A recent report has revealed that the 12.4-inch Galaxy Tab S7 will have a monstrous 9,800mAh battery.
Samsung will probably be sticking with an aspect ratio of 16:10 for the Galaxy Tab S7’s display. It will offer two different screen sizes for the device, though. The Galaxy Tab S7 is going to be available with an 11-inch and a 12.4-inch display. No word as yet on what the resolution might be but these Super AMOLED panels would at least have the resolution on the higher end.
The Galaxy Tab S6 was Samsung’s first tablet to feature a dual rear camera and we can expect a similar setup its successor as well. No details are available about the camera specs but we may see an improvement compared to the Galaxy Tab S6 which had a 13-megapixel primary sensor paired with a 5-megapixel ultra-wide sensor.
Samsung will most definitely be shipping the Galaxy Tab S7 with Android 10 and One UI 2.1 at the very least. It depends if One UI 2.5 has been released by then, there’s a good chance that the crop of devices due in the second half of this year may just come with One UI 2.5.
There isn’t a lot of information available right now about when the Galaxy Tab S7 might be released. Samsung is due to unveil new products in a couple of months, so we may not see it before July or August at the very least. Don’t expect much fanfare for the product, Samsung normally launches these tablets by way of a press release.
The Galaxy Tab S6 was offered $649.99 for the base 6GB/128GB variant. The Galaxy Tab S7 might end up being a bit more expensive given the improvements that it brings. Since it will have a 5G variant as well, it’s also going to command a price premium.
