Samsung has finally unveiled its next generation of Android tablets, the Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Tab S7 Plus. The powerhouse Galaxy Tab S6 was launched last year and quickly followed by the cheaper S6 Lite a few months later.
Samsung is not sticking to its classic tablet form factor and they are still coming up with innovative features and improved performance, especially now that tablet-sized phones can fold up to fit in our pockets amongst other great features.
The Galaxy Tab S7 and S7+ are both powered by the new Snapdragon 865+ chipset. There are two memory and storage configurations: 128GB + 6GB RAM and 256GB + 8GB RAM.
There’s also 5G connectivity on both models, which makes them the first ever tablets to have it. For the camera setup, a 13-megapixel primary camera, 5-megapixel ultra-wide angle camera is on the back. On the other hand, it has an 8-megapixel shooter for selfies and video calls.
The screen is the major difference between both tablets. The regular Galaxy Tab S7 comes with an 11-inch TFT LCD screen, while the S7+ features an 12.4-inch sAMOLED display.

An in-display fingerprint scanner is available on the S7 Plus, while the S7 scanner is integrated into the tablet’s power button. The battery capacity is understandably different, as the S7+ is packed with a 10,090mAh capacity while the standard S7 only has 8,000mAh. There’s 45W fast charging support for both models.
At the back is the magnetically attached Bluetooth-equipped S Pen, in addition to some new gesture navigations. An optional Book Cover Keyboard, redesigned with a larger touchpad was released by Samsung since neither the S7 or S7+ will be shipped with a keyboard.
The Galaxy Tab S7 and S7+ are expected to go on sale in the Philippines on August 28. They are available in Mystic Silver, Mystic Bronze and Mystic Black color options.
