Report suggests that the Galaxy Tab S7 will not come with an in-display fingerprint scanner
Samsung is all set to release not one but two flagship tablets this time around. The Galaxy Tab S7+ will be the proverbial king of the hill with a 12.4-inch screen and 10,000mAh battery. The Galaxy Tab S7 is expected to come with a slightly smaller 11-inch screen and less impressive battery chops. It will also replace the in-display fingerprint scanner with a side-mounted alternative.
Sammobile claims to have received the information comes from a company insider. While many smartphones now have in-display fingerprint sensors, they are yet to become commonplace in tablets. It could be a disappointment for many users, as reaching for the power button on a tablet can be a tad cumbersome. A rear-mounted option would be ideal, but that trend seems to be dying in 2020.
Thankfully, these will be the only differences between the Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Tab S7+. Both tablets will feature Qualcomm's newest Snapdragon 865+ SoC, up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, an AMOLED panel. However, the Galaxy Tab S7 might have to settle for a 60Hz screen, as Samsung will likely reserve the 120Hz panel for the Galaxy Tab S7+. We should know for sure in a couple of weeks.
