Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+ spotted on Bluetooth SIG, may come with 5G support

When it comes to Android tablets, Samsung is one of the only OEMs that make flagship tablets that can compete with Apple’s iPads. The Galaxy Tab S6 from last year was among the best tablets team Android had on offer and it seems like Samsung plans on setting the bar even higher this year. We already know from previous leaks that Samsung might offer a larger 12.4-inch tablet this year, alongside an 11-inch model. The tablets are expected to feature the latest hardware, faster charging, Android 10, and predictably 5G support. While Samsung has still not released any official information about the upcoming tablets, we now know that they will be launched under the Galaxy Tab S7 and Tab S7+ moniker.

The latest information about Samsung’s upcoming flagship tablets comes from a Bluetooth SIG listing that mentions the marketing name Galaxy Tab S7+ along with the model number SM-T976B. The model number falls in line with the aforementioned leaks, which suggested that the Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Tab S7+ will go by the model numbers SM-T97x and SM-T87x. Other than that, the listing reveals that the Galaxy Tab S7+ will include support for Bluetooth 5.0.

While we currently have no further information about the exact hardware specifications of the Galaxy Tab S7 and Tab S7+, we can safely assume that they will feature Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 865 SoC. Our resident Samsung tipster Max Weinbach suggests that the tablets will feature 5G support, but he wasn’t sure if Samsung will offer a 4G-only variant. We also expect Samsung to bring improvements in the camera department, support for faster charging, and higher RAM/storage variants in the upcoming flagship tablets.
