What you need to know
- Samsung's Tab S7+ has just passed Bluetooth certification as it gears to launch.
- It's expected to be a fairly large 12.4-inch tablet, competing with Apple's iPad Pro for mobile productivity professionals.
- The Tab S7 and S7+ are expected to launch in July.
Samsung's working on a successor to the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6, but it's likely to make a variant of that model for those who like jumbo-sized tablets to go with their jumbo-sized phones. While previously rumored as the Tab S7+, the branding of the tablet has just be confirmed on its Bluetooth certification page via Sammobile.
Sammobile also adds that the S7+ will come with hardware niceties like Samsung's now-staple AKG-tuned stereo speakers, a microSD card slot, the S Pen. It'll ship in grey, blue, and brown with the possibility of a keyboard accessory. Samsung has sold one with its tablets from the S5e to the S6, so it makes sense that a productivity-focused Tab S7+ would probably come with a keyboard as well.
While Samsung's software has been critiqued in the past, there's no denying that the company does make the best software and hardware combination for the (barely existent) Android tablet ecosystem. The Tab S7 and S7+ are expected to launch before the upcoming Note and Z Flip refreshes, likely in July.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6
Samsung's Galaxy Tab S6 is still one of the most best Android tablets that Samsung has made so far. Thanks to its class-leading hardware, brilliant display, and S Pen support, it also happens to be the best Android tablet currently available. While cheaper alternatives like the S5e exist, the S6 remains the current no-compromise option.

Can't wait. My Tab S4 isn't really very old, even though I bought it new from Costco. But a 12.4 screen on a well spec'd Android tablet with Pen support would be great. Certainly better than the Pixel Slate.
