12.4-inch Galaxy Tab S7+ CAD renders reveal Samsung's large Android tablet comeback
Samsung hasn’t made a 12-inch Android tablet in some time, but that is about to change with the impending launch of the Galaxy Tab S7+, as it is expected to be called. It is set to join a regular 11-inch Galaxy Tab S7 as Samsung looks set to take on both the 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models with its 2020 line up. Even though the Tab S7+ will lob in at 12.4-inches, or smaller than Apple’s largest iPad Pro, it should offer a good balance between additional screen real estate and mobility.
The CAD renders accompanying the article, the handiwork of @onleaks and @Pigtou_, show a very similar design language to both the smaller 11-inch Galaxy Tab S7 as well as the 10.5-inch Galaxy Tab S6 model from 2019. A key difference, however, is that the Tab S7+ will be close to matching the 12.9-inch iPad Pro for thinness. The dual rear camera sits atop a semi-recessed slot to house its S-Pen as we saw on last year’s Tab S6 for the first time.
Another area where Samsung is looking to match the iPad Pro range is with its AMOLED displays ramping up to support a 120 Hz refresh rate – a feature Apple calls Pro Motion on its LCD-based iPad Pro models. A question mark continues to hang over its chipset. While the Snapdragon 865 is most likely, Samsung hasn’t always used a current gen flagship smartphone chipset in its tablets. Last year’s Tab S6, which featured a Snapdragon 855, was the first in some time to get a current gen flagship SoC.
