Samsung's Galaxy Tab S7 could ditch AMOLED in favor of LCD

Samsung's Galaxy Tab S7 could ditch AMOLED in favor of LCD

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.

Galaxy Tab S7+ renders show off 12.4-inch screen as rumors talk 9,800mAh battery

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+.

Verizon's Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 receives Android 9 Pie update

Verizon's Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 receives Android 9 Pie update

Android tablets, like their phone counterparts, receive periodic Android OS updates — albeit much more slowly. The Verizon Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 tablet — a flagship LTE tablet from 2017 — has now been updated to Android 9 Pie. Sure, Android 10 would be preferable, but that will probably never happen considering the Tab S3 launched with Android 7 Nougat.

[Update: It's Rolling Out Now] Sprint Samsung Galaxy Tab Getting Gingerbread On July 5th, Kernel Source Code Released

Update: This update is rolling out now, and is expected to hit all customers within four days.

If a leaked internal document obtained by SprintFeed is to be believed, then owners of the OG Galaxy Tab on Sprint should finally join the Gingerbread club on July 5th. This update will also bring added support for HD Bluetooth to the seven-inch tablet, on top of the added benefits and goodies of Gingerbread.

This timeline seems to be about right, as Samsung just released the source code for the Galaxy Tab SPH-P100 Gingerbread kernel. This means that, aside from receiving a much-needed bump up to Gingerbread, you should also see some custom kernel action popup shortly after.

[Unconfirmed] Acer Delaying Iconia A100 Tablet Due To Honeycomb Restrictions On 7-Inch Screens?

[Unconfirmed] Acer Delaying Iconia A100 Tablet Due To Honeycomb Restrictions On 7-Inch Screens?

The Acer Iconia A100 - a 7-inch Honeycomb tablet [unlike the 10" A500... makes sense, right? - Aaron]- was originally slated to hit the market in late May/early June, but has been delayed until August/September due to restrictions with Honeycomb on a 7-inch, 1024*600 display. Honeycomb was designed to take advantage of 10 inch, 1280*800 displays, and according to Digitimes, Google is too busy "resolving other issues" to tend to this little debacle, so Acer had no choice but to delay the device.

The first question that comes to my mind, however, has nothing to do with Acer - but instead, HTC and the Flyer (for those who may not know, the HTC Flyer also sports a 7 inch, 1024*600 display).

Flyer Surfaces Showing Wifi Galaxy Tab Launching April 4 For $399

Flyer Surfaces Showing Wifi Galaxy Tab Launching April 4 For $399

Take it as you wish, but a flyer that (according to Droid Life) was passed out by Samsung representatives at a technology fair today clearly shows that a Wifi-only version of the original 7" Galaxy Tab is set to hit store shelves on April 4 at $399.

If this turns out to be legit, it may be viewed as a mixed bag by Android users. On the one hand, it's a quality tablet from a major manufacturer offered for $100 less than the iPad, but on the other hand, this isn't November and the original Tab's specs are easily dwarfed by the current generation of Tegra 2 slates that are becoming available.
