[Update: New Render] Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S7 and Tab S7+ tablets leak online in new images
Despite the global decline in tablet sales, Samsung is still indulging in the flagship tablets market. We reviewed the Galaxy Tab S6 last year and hailed it the “the best tablet Android has to offer.” Samsung has been preparing to upgrade the tablet with the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 that comes in two sizes this time; the 11-inch model is likely to be called the Galaxy Tab S7 and the bigger 12.4-inch model the Tab S7+. We’ve also seen digital renders of the Galaxy Tab S7 duo and learned about the 120Hz display that the tablets will sport in response to the iPad Pro. Now, a series of recent leaks reveal marketing and live images of the tablets while another gives us an insight into their specifications.
Starting with the images first, we have images from the certification of the Galaxy Tab S7+ (model number SM-T976N) by the Safety Korea certification body via Twitter user @_the_tech_guy. The image from the front of the tablet discloses bezels of the same size as the Galaxy Tab S6 and a camera placed along the longer edge of the device so that you can use the tablet for video calls while continuing to use the tablet in landscape mode.
The image from the back of the tablet shows dual cameras, a magnetic strip to hold the S Pen stylus, and an AKG branding, confirming that the speakers are tuned by the sound engineering company that is now owned by Samsung.
Seasoned leaker Evan Blass (also known as @evleaks) also shared an image of the Galaxy Tab S7 that appears to be from the marketing collaterals for the tablet. The image, however, does not accompany any claim from the leaker about the specifications.
Meanwhile, SamMobile does report the specifications of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+ will include the recently announced Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus mobile platform. The chipset will be complemented by 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of storage along with a microSD card slot for expanding it further. The 5G variant of the Galaxy Tab S7+ will only support sub-6GHz 5G signals.
The 12.4-inch AMOLED display on the Galaxy Tab S7+ will bear a resolution of 2800 x 1752 pixels and also feature an in-display fingerprint scanner like the previous generation. Additionally, the S Pen will come with improved responsiveness and pointer functionality, just like the upcoming Galaxy Note 20 series. Furthermore, there will be a colossal 10,090mAh battery with support for fast charging at up to 45W.
The tablet will be equipped with the same 13MP+5MP camera setup on the back and 8MP on the front. It is expected to run Samsung’s One UI 2.5 on top of Android 10.
It is reasonable to expect that Samsung will launch the Galaxy Tab S7 and the S7+ at the Samsung Unpacked event in August where it reveals the Note 20 trio. However, Vietnamese tipster @Boby25846908 suggests that the Galaxy Tab S7+ and the Watch 3 will launch at a separate event that is two weeks after the Unpacked gala. We’ll update you with more information once we learn about Samsung’s plans.
