- A new rumor claims Samsung's next flagship Android tablets will be available in 11 and 12.4-inch display sizes.
- The tablets are expected to come with 5G connectivity, larger battery, and improved cameras compared to the Galaxy Tab S6.
- They are rumored to debut sometime in the third quarter of the year.
While most Android OEMs have given up on tablets, Samsung continues to sell flagship Android tablets with gorgeous Super AMOLED displays and the latest hardware. As per a new report from SamMobile, Samsung's upcoming flagship tablets will come in bigger sizes than the current Galaxy Tab S6.
As per the report, two flagship Galaxy tablets are currently being developed, under the SM-T97x and SM-T87x model numbers. The tablets will reportedly feature 11-inch and 12.4-inch displays. Thanks to the larger display size, Samsung's next flagship tablet could prove to be a decent alternative to the 12.9-inch Apple iPad Pro.
In terms of hardware, the report claims the tablets will come with the "latest processor," improved cameras, 5G connectivity, and large batteries. On the software front, the tablets will ship with Android 10 out of the box. While a specific timeframe hasn't been confirmed, the tablets are expected to be launched sometime in the third quarter of the year. Samsung had launched the Galaxy Tab S6 in July last year, so we can expect the Galaxy Tab S7 (or Tab S20) series to debut before the launch of the Galaxy Note 20 series.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6
The Snapdragon 855-powered Galaxy Tab S6 is one of the most impressive 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.

that's kind of nice, but I wouldn't consider buying them for any sort of productivity work as long as they keep that wide aspect ratio. I hope they switch to 16:10 or 3:2
I'm hoping this is true, and that they put a flash on the rear camera again. I passed on the Tab S6 because there was no flash. Got a Tab S4, saved myself some money, got a decent tablet, and that flash. I know "not that many people use the flash on a tablet", but I don't care, I'm one of those people.
Sad to see the tablet market devolving into "keyboardless laptops." I just want an updated Nexus 9.
Bear in mind the OEMs are also producing keyboard accessories very much like those on laptops, including trackpads and the works!
I'll wait for that 12.4". I hope it has an S Pen.
FINALLY! Am a huge fan of the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 tablet they had back in the day and was gutted when they did not release an upgrade or keep the series alive. I still have one which works and which I use for reading magazines and some ebooks. Can't wait for these to be released.
