Samsung’s Galaxy Tab lineup features premium tablets that try to go head to head with Apple’s iPad Pro. This time around, Samsung will be announcing two top-end tablets at the same time. The upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 and S7+ have been making headlines for a while now. Today we will be taking a look at the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 and S7+, including all the rumors, leaks, specs, and expected launch and availability.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S7, S7+ Overview
Design and Display
Examining the leaked renders of the upcoming Galaxy Tab S7 lineup, we don’t see a radical change in the design. The two tabs will feature the same slim design of the Galaxy Tab S6. However, the Tab S7+ will be a little taller than its vanilla sibling. On the back, there is a pill-shaped camera module that houses the dual camera setup along with an LED flash. Just below it, one can notice the groove that will hold the S Pen. Further below, there is a Samsung branding.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 will sport an 11-inch display while the display on the Plus variant will measure 12.4-inch. We don’t expect anything but AMOLED displays on the two. The biggest news here is that the Galaxy Tab S7 series will have support for the 120Hz refresh rate. According to Ice Universe, a popular tipster, both the vanilla and Plus variant will have 120Hz screens.
Performance and Memory
Geebench listings have thrown some light on important specs of the upcoming Galaxy Tab S7 and S7+. Both are listed with the “Kona” motherboard. As you may have known, “Kona” is the codename for the latest flagship Qualcomm mobile processor – Snapdragon 865. Going through the benchmark results, the S7+ outperformed S7 in multi-core performance while S7 came out top in the single-core performance.
Unlike flagship smartphones from Samsung that have different processors based on the region, the Galaxy Tab S7 will only have the SD 865. An Exynos alternative might be used in a “Lite” variant, in case Samsung plans to launch it. Still, Samsung will be offering 5G ready variants on limited markets in the US and Europe while the rest of the regions will be deprived of the feature.
Both the devices, that went through the tests, were equipped with 6GB of RAM. However, we expect there to be 8GB variants as well. The Galaxy Tab S7 lineup may debut with the same memory configurations as the S6.
Camera and S Pen
Normally, tablets are not known for having a high-performance camera. The Galaxy Tab S7 and S7+ will feature a dual-camera setup. There will also be a camera on the front. The latter could come handy as the world is now turning to distance work/learning because of the COVID 19 outbreak.
On the back, we also notice the groove which holds the S Pen. Though no leaked renders showcase the latter, we are confident that Samsung will be providing an S Pen inside the box. Even the Tab S6 Lite came with one which launched earlier this year.
Battery and Others
In spite of their slim form factor, the Tab S7 and S7+ will be featuring massive batteries inside. The Galaxy Tab S7+ is said to come with a whopping 10,090mAh battery. Its vanilla sibling will be including a 7,760mAh battery. There will be an upgrade on the software front as the Tab S7 series will run on One UI 2.0 based on Android 10.

It’s too soon to make assumptions but still, it is safe to say that the new Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 lineup won’t replace the iPad Pro as the best tablet in the market. The processor and the OS still lag behind Apple’s Bionic chip and iPadOS. Even so, Samsung has a lot going in its favor. It comes with S Pen inside the box and now will feature a 120Hz AMOLED display. These along with the massive battery might be enough for most of the normal users.
