At next week's Galaxy Unpacked 2020 event, Samsung is expected to take the wraps off a total of five devices, which includes its new flagship tablet range. The Galaxy Tab S7 for 2020 is rumored to be accompanied by a bigger Plus model, and we’ve already heard a lot about the two. But the latest WinFuture report gives away nearly everything about the two slates. What’s most surprising here is that Samsung looks set to downgrade the standard model’s screen by using LCD technology instead of keeping the AMOLED from last year.
Samsung remains the sole Android manufacturer really trying to take on the iPad these days, and it looks like the company is not lowering the effort it's putting into its Tab S series. After we've already seen first renders of the Galaxy Tab S7+ and got some details on a 12.4-inch screen and the dimensions, SamMobile now provides an almost complete overview of the rest of the tablet's hardware specifications.
Samsung is the only manufacturer interested in producing high-end Android tablets, but last year, the company added a slightly cheaper option to its Tab S lineup. The Galaxy Tab S5e retained the high-quality AMOLED screen and thin design of Samsung's highest-end models, but lacked the Tab S4's stylus support (and still cost over $400). This time around, Samsung is trying something different with the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite.
Despite its faults, the new Galaxy Tab S6 Lite might be the strongest iPad competitor Samsung has ever produced. The hardware won't blow you away, and it doesn't have all the features of the more expensive Tab S6, but it's a full-fledged tablet with an included S Pen stylus for $350 — only $20 more than the cheapest iPad, not including the $100 Apple Pencil.
Samsung is one of the only remaining companies still putting out new Android tablets — at least, those worth buying. Earlier this year, rumors pointed to a large-screen refresh of the Tab S6. New renders of the upcoming S7 tablet were released online just last week. Now there's another early look available at the Tab S7 line, this time showcasing the plus-sized variant, the Galaxy Tab S7+.
Samsung’s current flagship tablet, the Galaxy Tab S6, is soon turning one year old, and we could expect to see its follow-up confirmed any time in the next couple of months. But before that happens, the customary leaks and rumors have already started flowing in, giving away quite a bit about the upcoming slate. A fresh leak shares some detailed renders of the alleged Tab S7, giving us a good idea of how its design is going to be.
Samsung is one of the few major Android OEMs still bothering to make tablets, and it makes a lot of them. The company had filled one of the few gaps in its lineup today with the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite. This tablet isn't as powerful as the Tab S6, but it still has the S Pen stylus.
Last year, Walmart released the surprisingly competent Onn 8 Android tablet. A year later, Walmart is launching more Onn tablets, but these are Onn Pro. How "pro" are we talking here? USB-C, Android 10, and higher screen resolutions. Calling that "pro" might be a stretch, but this is Walmart.
The Fire HD 8 is one of Amazon's most popular hardware products, but it has been overdue for a hardware refresh. Now the company has finally released a new version of the Fire HD 8, and there are even some features you don't normally see in a tablet — like Qi wireless charging.
Samsung's tablet lineup is almost as convoluted as its smartphone strategy. The Galaxy Tab S6 is at the top, with the budget Tab S5e dropping pen support and going with a cheaper processor, but leaks for a new Tab S6 Lite started popping up last month. Now the tablet is official, though pricing and availability details are still unknown.
Despite the coronavirus pandemic, which already forced some schedule adjustments on Google developers, the company has launched Chrome OS 81 to the stable channel. The latest release packs a new gesture navigation for the tablet mode and adds picture-in-picture support for Android apps. It also shrinks the taskbar ever so slightly to give you more screen real estate.
