Samsung is slated to hold a virtual Galaxy Unpacked event on August 5. The company is expected to launch a slew of devices, including the Galaxy Note20 series, an updated Z Flip with beefier internals and 5G support, the second-generation Fold, a new Galaxy Watch 3, two Tab S7 variants, and more. A lot of the specs about most products have leaked, giving everyone a glimpse of the offerings lined up for launch.
Now, a new report from SamMobile shines some light on one of the features in the smaller, 11-inch Tab S7 models. The South Korean giant is said to be readying two versions of its flagship tablet named the Galaxy Tab S7 and Tab S7+. While the larger, 12.4-inch display sporting model is expected to come with an in-display fingerprint sensor, the smaller sibling will reportedly be fitted with a power button-mounted unit. This will be one of the differentiating factors between the two models.
The publication, however, cannot confirm if the larger model will come with an ultrasonic fingerprint module like the company’s other flagships. Considering that the device is a flagship offering, it is less likely that the company would make do with an optical reader for the tablet.
As for the other specs, the S7 is expected to maintain parity in terms of processing prowess with its larger sibling, employing a top-of-the-line Snapdragon 865+ SoC. Both devices are expected to come with support for the company’s S Pen and be offered with an official keyboard accessory. The device’s design was also recently leaked by renowned leaker Evan Blass on Patreon.
It will be interesting to see what other features separate the two flagship offerings from the firm and how they stack against competing devices like the iPad Pro.
