A major leak has offered more details about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab S7, including information about select components. There are some positive improvements over the S6, but some potential buyers might be disappointed by the base version.
It appears that Samsung decided to fit the base Tab S7 model with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC, which is powerful but not as powerful as 865 Plus version that will be included on the Tab S7 Plus version, as the manufacturing of a standard and enhance version of a new device has become a standard in recent years.
However, some companies offer several versions of a device but keep most of the internals identical. The 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro come with the same A12Z Bionic chip and storage capacities, with the larger screen area being the greatest advantage of the bigger version.
The less powerful SoC is not the first disappointment. A display with a 120Hz refresh rate will be present on both the standard Tab S7 and the Tab S7 Plus, but in the case of the former, an LCD panel will be used while the latter will enjoy an OLED one, a decision that seems to be geared towards attracting more customers to the more expensive version.
One of the major improvements is represented by a bigger battery as the leak mentions that the Tab S7 battery will have an 8,000 mAh capacity up by 960 mAh in comparison to the one present on the Tab S6.
RAM amount remains a mystery for now, but both versions will come with 128GB of built-in storage space that can be expanded by up to 1TB with the help of a MicroSD card. AKG-tuned speakers could also make an appearance, as this feature was mentioned by previous leaks.
It is estimated that the device will be released in August 2020.
