Samsung to release Galaxy Tab S7/S20 this summer
Based on the WFA certificate’s appearance, this adds further credence as to earlier rumors about the launching date of the Galaxy Tab S7 which is thought to be this summer. Samsung is also said to be splitting it’s flagship tablet into two different sizes possibly taking the iPad approach.
More specifically, the series will offer 11-inch and 12.4-inch models, both of which will be offered in 4G LTE and Wi-Fi-only variants. As for 5G capabilities, those appear to be exclusive to the larger form factor.
Also, the ceritification suggest that the Galaxy Tab S7 series will be the first tablet lineup to offer both 5G and Wi-Fi 6 support and we all know Samsung likes to be the first in doing somethings sometimes right. The company had been contributing to both standard and so it’s not unexpected to see it reaching the milestone ahead of its rivals even though not too many of them are in the tablet market really well compared to the earbuds market which is now as fierce as ever under few years.
