Audacious price tags rumoured for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 series as premium tablets arrive on the Google Play Console
Yet more details about the Galaxy Tab S7 and Tab S7 Plus have been revealed ahead of their expected launch on August 5. Firstly, Evan Blass has published more marketing renders of both devices, including one that shows the pair side by side. The renders confirm the positioning of the tablet's card slot, along with its volume and power buttons. They also show how much emphasis will place on the tablet's pen capabilities for presentations, drawing and note-taking.
Blass has also presented a render that appears to showcase the Tab S7 for use with Project xCloud, Microsoft's Xbox game streaming service. The Galaxy Note 20 and Note Ultra are rumoured to be the first smartphones to support Project xCloud, so it should come as no surprise to see Microsoft and Samsung's partnership extend to the Tab S7 series too. The render also shows what looks like an Xbox edition of the Power A MOGA XP5-A Plus Bluetooth controller. Power A already partners with Microsoft, for reference.
Separately, four Galaxy Tab S7 listings have been published on the Google Play Console. The listings confirm that there will be Wi-Fi and 5G versions of the Tab S7 Plus, but its smaller sibling will only be available with Wi-Fi and LTE. Similarly, the Tab S7 will only come with 6 GB of RAM, but the Tab S7 Plus will be available with 6 GB or 8 GB.
Additionally, the Tab S7 Plus will have a 2,800 x 1,752 pixel display, which is higher resolution than the 2,560 x 1,600 pixels at which the Tab S7 operates. Both tablets will have a display density of 340 DPI though, and will be powered by the Snapdragon 865 Plus.
The leaks about the Galaxy Tab S7 series do not stop there, though. Nils Ahrensmeier of Techniknews has also revealed the prices of the tablets in Europe. According to Ahrensmeier, Samsung will price the series as follows:
- Galaxy Tab S7 (128 GB/Wi-Fi) - €699
- Galaxy Tab S7 (128 GB/LTE) - €799
- Galaxy Tab S7 Plus (256 GB/Wi-Fi) - €999
- Galaxy Tab S7 Plus (256 GB/5G) - €1,199
Those prices include VAT, for reference. While Ahrensmeier did not reveal the US prices of the Tab S7 series, but we would expect the series to start at least US$650 considering Samsung's recent pricing strategies in Europe and the US. The new S Pen will supposedly retail for €59.90 too, which is roughly the same price as Samsung charges for the Galaxy Tab S6 edition. According to Ahrensmeier, the Tab S7 will only be available in black and silver, whereas the Plus model will also be sold in Bronze. Presumably, Samsung will append those colours with "Mystic" as other leaks have suggested.
