Samsung has been iterating on its premium Galaxy Tab S range of tablets faster than ever before in recent years, with the most recent updates just announced during the company’s Galaxy Unpacked event.
The new tablet is actually a couple of tablets, with the main Tab S7 coming in at 11-inches while the Tab S7+ rocks a 12.4-inch display. As you’d expect from Samsung, these are premium displays with high resolutions (2560×1600 LTPS TFT on the Tab S7 and 2800×1752 Super AMOLED on the Tab S7+) with 120Hz refresh rates keeping things silky smooth.
Internally the tablets are mostly the same, with Octa-core processors and 6GB RAM on 128GB storage variants and 8GB on the 256GB models. There’s quad-speaker array that can handle Dolby Atmos duties, and huge batteries (8,000 mAh on the Tab S7, 10,090 mAh on Tab S7+) with 45W fast-charging. On the Tab S7 your fingerprint reader is on the side of the device, while the Tab S7+ has an in-display reader.
Samsung’s new S Pen (revealed with the Note 20) is also along for the ride along with the Samsung Notes app, so it makes sense that they’re launching them together. The S Pen docks on the back of the tablets to charge.
The cameras aren’t pushing any boundaries, but being a tablet they don’t have to. There’s a dual camera array on the back of the tablets (13MP main and 5MP ultrawide, with a flash) and an 8MP camera on the front.
The Galaxy Tab S7 (and its bigger Tab S7+) are definitely in the premium tablet range, starting at $1,149 and ranging up to $2,049. There’s also Book Cover and a Book Cover Keyboard accesories available to help you complete the look.
The tablets come in Mystic Bronze or Mystic Silver. As with the Note 20, the “mystic” colours are neutral tones designed to be somewhat timeless with a “haze” texture effect that reduces fingerprints. There are of course, also 5G options. The tablets will be launching in Australia on Friday September 11.
