Definitely, today is Samsung’s day, but not just because it finally announced the Galaxy Z Fold 2. Although they were revealed last month, only now is Samsung making the details of its Galaxy Tab S7 slates public. They are, unsurprisingly, one of the most expensive Android tablets you will see on the market, especially when you consider that it practically needs the keyboard case, which is probably also the reason why you will want to take advantage of the pre-sale offer it has to offer.
The Galaxy Tab S7 has already been revealed starting at $ 649.99, while its larger Galaxy Tab S7 + brother would come out for $ 849.99 right away. That was pretty much all we knew, however, and it only applied to Wi-Fi models. Samsung, AT&T and Verizon are now filling in the missing parts before the pre-order period begins.
If you are competing for the 5G versions of these tablets, you will have to pay an additional $ 200, ending with $ 849.99 for the Galaxy Tab S7 5G and $ 1,049.99 for the Galaxy Tab S7 + 5G. Interestingly, AT&T appears to carry only the Galaxy Tab S7 5G, while Verizon carries both, both of which are compatible with the operator’s Ultra Wideband (UW) 5G network. Neither carries models with Wi-Fi only, which is nothing new.
Although these prices already include the S Pen, they do not include the new keyboard cover, which costs an additional $ 200 or $ 230 for the Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Tab S7 +, respectively. Granted, it’s not as critical as having an S Pen out of the box, but it completes the image of a productivity powerhouse that Samsung was trying to sell.
Fortunately, those who order the tables starting tomorrow, September 2, will be able to get that keyboard for half the price. Both Samsung and operators also have financing options to help ease the scam. The Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Tab S7 + will officially go on sale on September 18th.
