The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 has been given the OnLeaks treatment, with the device looking uncannily like its predecessor. The Galaxy Tab S7 resembles the iPad Pro 11 too, right down to its 11-inch display. Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Tab S7+ in August alongside a host of other hardware including the Galaxy Note 20 series.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 and Tab S7+ are set to arrive alongside the Galaxy Note 20 series on August 5, with the latter expected to feature at least a 10,000 mAh battery. Samsung is said to be releasing other devices at its next Galaxy UNPACKED event too, with the Galaxy Watch 3, Galaxy Buds Live, Galaxy Fold 2 and Galaxy Flip Z 5G all floated as possible candidates to join the Tab S7 and Note 20 series. Ahead of that event, OnLeaks has partnered with Pigtou to deliver renders of what the Galaxy Tab S7 will look like. Presumably, the Tab S7+ will also resemble these designs.

According to past leaks, the Galaxy Tab S7 will feature an 11-inch display, with Samsung opting for a 12.4-inch panel with the Tab S7+. If those display sizes did not remind you of recent iPad Pros, then the renders that OnLeaks and Pigtou have presented might. The two claim that the Galaxy Tab S7 will be 6.6 mm thick, which would make it slightly thicker than the iPad Pro 11 and even the Galaxy Tab S6.

On the face of it, Samsung has made only minor design changes from the Galaxy Tab S6, too. The back panel is almost identical to last year's model, but Samsung has added an LED flash. Additionally, the company has moved the front-facing camera to the long side of the display. The power button appears to have also been changed. Based on these renders, it will sit almost flush with the tablet's frame, which may indicate the presence of an integrated fingerprint scanner. Those are the only design changes that we can spot, though.

Separately, the Bluetooth SIG has recently certified the Galaxy Tab S7+. According to the listing, the Bluetooth SIG has certified the SM-T976B, which is thought to be the 5G version of the Tab S7+. The listing also confirms that the Tab S7 series will support Bluetooth 5.0, which was to be expected. It is safe to assume that Samsung will equip the Galaxy Tab S7 series with the Snapdragon 865, too.
