Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 series debuts, highlights 120Hz AMOLED and Snapdragon 865+ chipset


Both the Galaxy Tab S7 and the Galaxy Tab S7+ also come with S Pen support and Android UI, which is designed for productivity.

The new premium Galaxy tablet series, which comprises the vanilla Galaxy Tab S7 and the Galaxy Tab S7+, is now official. Alongside Samsung’s second iteration of the Galaxy Fold and the Galaxy Note 20 lineup, the Korean tech behemoth also launched its newest flagship offerings in the Android tablet competition.

So, what has changed?

AMOLED with up to 120Hz refresh rate

Right off the bat, the series’ variants are almost identical, except for a few things. The pronounced difference between the two can be found in the display department.

The former features a slightly smaller 11-inch TFT panel, with a resolution of 1,600 x 2,560 pixels. On the other hand, the latter has a 12.4-inch Super AMOLED screen, with a resolution of 1,752 x 2,800 pixels. Both have up to 120Hz of display refresh rates.

Bigger batteries

There is also a tiny bit of difference under the hood. The tablets are powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865+ chipset, which is then paired with 6GB/8GB of RAM tiers 128GB/256GB of internal storage options.

The non-Plus edition features an 8,000mAh battery, while the Plus version packs a massive 10,090mAh battery.

The same can be said in the security section. While both sport facial recognition, the tablets vary in terms of their placements of the fingerprint reader. The Galaxy Tab S7 has it mounted on its side key, while the Plus variant has it embedded underneath its display.

Both tablets feature a dual-camera setup on their rear panels. The setup is front-lined by a 13-megapixel camera and is accompanied by a 5MP ultrawide sensor. Meanwhile, their front has an 8MP selfie shooter.

Galaxy Tab S7: Designed for productivity

Samsung’s DeX mode can also be used on tablets. The said mode can be enhanced using the Book Cover Keyboard, which also features a touchpad. The tablets also come with USB-C 3.2 Gen 1 port, which supports DisplayPort; the latter allows users to connect their devices to an external monitor with just a single cable. Both devices also support S Pen.

Both tablets also feature AKG-backed speakers, two on the left, and another two on the right. There is also support for Dolby Atmos. The tablets run on One UI 2 based on the latest Android 10.

The Galaxy Tab S7 features a starting price of USD 649, while the Tab S7+ has USD 749. The series is scheduled to become available on August 21.
