An industry insider states that the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 will come with a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, indicating that Samsung has reserved the in-display option for the higher-end Galaxy Tab S7+. The tablet is expected to sport an 11-inch screen and a 7,000mAh battery. Samsung is expected to unveil both tablets alongside the Galaxy Note 20 on August 5.

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.
