Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 specs leak: What’s missing compared to the Plus model?

The Galaxy Tab S7 might not be a huge downgrade from the Plus model, according to these leaked specs.

  • Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 specs have purportedly leaked online.
  • The tablet could be equipped with a Snapdragon 865 chipset and a 120Hz LCD screen.
  • The upcoming slate is also tipped to arrive with an 8,000mAh battery.

Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy Tab S7 series on August 5 alongside the Galaxy Note 20 series and other devices. We’ve already seen purported Galaxy S7 Plus specs and renders, and now we’ve laid our eyes on apparent specs for the vanilla model.

Pricebaba and serial leaker Ishan Agarwal report that the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 will pack a Snapdragon 865 processor instead of the Snapdragon 865 Plus tipped for the Galaxy Tab S7 Plus. This is still one of the most powerful, feature-packed SoCs on the market though, so gaming and other tasks should be handled just fine.

It’s believed that the tablet will also have an 11-inch 2,560 x 1,600 LCD screen with a 120Hz refresh rate. This would be a departure from its predecessor, which featured a 10.5-inch OLED screen with a 60Hz refresh rate. This would also be smaller than the S7 Plus’s supposed 12.4-inch display with a resolution of 2,800 x 1,752.

A higher refresh rate usually requires more juice, and the duo report that the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 will pack an 8,000mAh battery. This is significantly bigger than the 7,040mAh battery in the Galaxy Tab S6, so this new battery should be enough to keep the lights on for a while.

The website and leaker also report that the new tablet will bring 128GB of expandable storage in at least one variant, a single 13MP rear camera, an 8MP selfie shooter, and AKG quad speakers. There’s no word on how much RAM we should expect in the new tablet.
