Another of the most striking novelties is the 5G compatibility, the imminent new connectivity standard that promises greater speed and lower latency, two very interesting assets for both leisure and work on the Internet.

For the rest, the new more premium tablets of Asians continue betting on productivity fundamentally thanks to the versatility of its official accessories in the form of an external keyboard and stylus, a powerful proposal at the hardware level and its own customization layer.

Print panels (especially the Tab S7 +)

While in the Tab S6 the panel was 10.5 inches, this new generation opts for a slightly more landscape and thick version at the cost of going up an additional half inch to the standard model. The ambitious Tab S7 + goes up to 12.4 inches diagonally, a notable increase that is reinforced by the panel technology.

And is that Samsung reserves the AMOLED for the Plus version, leaving the IPS LCD for the standard. This differentiation is not appreciated in other technologies implemented on their screens, such as the HDR10 + mode and the landing of the “fashionable” refresh rate among the most premium smartphones to the tablet format: both reach the refresh rate of 120 Hz.

These two novelties boast a most ambitious proposal in entertainment such as gaming or content consumption that it is intuited that it can take its toll on the battery. To reinforce this audiovisual experience, we again find four stereo speakers with AKG and Dolby Atmos technology.

An expected renovation in hardware and software with professional potential

Samsung follow betting on Qualcomm’s most ambitious processors for its best tablets in a renovation in which the Snapdragon 855 of the previous generation is passed to the Snapdragon 865+ and the options of 6 and 8GB of RAM. As for the storage space, again the 128GB and 256GB options expandable by microSDXC card up to 1TB capacity.

Under the hood there are no differences between the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 and S7 + in hardware, but yes, there is in the drums, where you can see a good jump between one and the other. Thus, from the 7,040 mAh of the Tab S6 now the Tab S7 goes up to 8,000 mAh and the large Tab S7 + exceeds 10,000 mAh to compensate for those larger and more ambitious panels. In addition, both have fast charging at 45W through their USB type C 3.1 port, which can also be used to extract video and audio with a Display Port adapter (not included).

Both in one and the other we will find Android 10 by default along with Samsung’s One UI 2 customization layer, with its respective services and own applications, the functions to squeeze the S-Pen, the potential of these tablets or Samsung DeX, which emulates the experience of a computer, something essential in some tablets that are postulated by characteristics and price for professional use. Among its own apps, the Korean firm wanted to highlight Samsung Notes, which allows you to automatically capture, view and edit ideas on a tablet, phone or PC.

Another incentive that reinforces the candidacy of these Tab S7 and Tab S7 + as devices for work is their collaboration with Microsoft, an alliance that translates into greater cross-platform understanding and that will allow, among other things, to be able to use these tablets as a second screen on our Windows desktop computer. But Microsoft is also Xbox and that means playing, specifically on these devices to be able to play anywhere thanks to its characteristics.

More details for leisure and productivity

Samsung has opted for keep the photographic proposal of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 in this generation, thus finding ourselves in both models with two rear cameras with a 13 MP ultra-wide-angle main camera and f / 2.0 aperture accompanied by a 5 MP wide-angle with f / 2.2 aperture. For selfies, an 8 MP front sensor and f / 2.0 focal aperture.

Though both tablets have a fingerprint reader, while in the standard model we find it integrated on the side, for the Tab S7 + model it is located under the screen.

The new Tab S7 too Take advantage of the Note 20’s improved S Pen functionality (included), more accurate, with a latency reduced to 9 ms and the novelty of the gesture function, which would facilitate navigation in common tasks such as restarting, screenshots, shooting the camera and of course, using it as if it were a pencil. And to save it? They have a space in the back where it can be fixed by magnetization, although with the cover (not included) it is hidden.

Regarding connectivity, while in the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 there are three variants, namely: with Wi-Fi only, LTE 4G and the option with 5G, for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 + there is only the option with Wi-Fi or with Wi-Fi + 5G.
