Wait for Even Better Performance
Samsung always makes year-to-year upgrades to the Galaxy Tab's internals and we expect the new model to deliver an assortment of performance upgrades.
The Galaxy Tab S6 utilizes Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 chip and you can expect the Galaxy Tab S7 to come with an updated chip.
There's speculation the device will be powered by Qualcomm's newer Snapdragon 865 processor. Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Tab S7+ Geekbench benchmarks back up this up. The benchmarks also hint at 6GB of RAM.
However, well-known leaker Ice Universe says the Galaxy Tab S7 will be powered by Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 865 Plus. He claims the processor will also be on board the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Fold 2.
Qualcomm recently confirmed the Snapdragon 865 Plus so there's a good chance it's the chip that powers the new Galaxy Tab.
A newer processor could help improve critical features like battery life, overall speed, multitasking, and gaming.
The Galaxy Tab S7 probably won't come with the type of camera upgrades Samsung brought to the Galaxy S series this year, but you can expect the company to improve the device's camera(s).
The Galaxy Tab S6 was the first Galaxy Tab model to come with a dual camera setup. It also has an 8MP sensor up front.
On top of that, Samsung is planning to put a massive battery inside the larger Galaxy Tab S7. According to Dutch site Galaxy Club, a China Compulsory Certificate lists a huge 9,800 mAh battery.
If true, it would mean it would have 40% higher battery capacity than the Galaxy Tab S6 which sports a 7,040 mAh battery.
There's also evidence that points to the Galaxy Tab S7 having support for 45W fast charging.
So if you want a ton of horsepower, but aren't interested in the new iPad Pros, think about waiting for the Galaxy Tab S7.
