Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 leak shows a plus-sized version and clever stylus holder

Image Description

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 has been prematurely revealed thanks to a comprehensive leak from Twitter user, Evan Blass.

The video provides a detailed look at the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7, and suggests that a Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 Plus will indeed be available after much speculation. Based on the video, the tablet also features stylus support and a nifty place to store the stylus if you purchase the keyboard attachment.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 is Samsung’s top-end tablet for 2020 and is set to challenge Apple’s iPad Pro. The tablet is likely to cost more than the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6, which retails for $649 / £619 / AU$1,099 and $729 / £689 / AU$1,299 for its lowest storage option, in WiFi-only and with LTE connectivity, respectively.

The video shows that the Galaxy Tab S7 will take advantage of Samsung DeX, which allows users to get a desktop-like experience for productivity tasks. Interestingly, it seems that the tablet can use DeX at the push of a button, and doesn’t require an external screen to function.

More to come

Much like the Surface Pro 7 and Apple iPad Pro, a detachable keyboard will seemingly be available that will be a must-have purchase for those who want to transform their tablet into a laptop-like device.

We’ll find out more about Samsung’s upcoming tablet at today’s Samsung Unpacked event. You can follow along with the announcements over at our Samsung Galaxy Note 20 launch live blog, where we’re expecting to see a range of devices including the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2, Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 and Samsung Galaxy Buds Live.

  • Windows 11 is getting a fresh new email app

    Microsoft's push to update all its classic apps for Windows 11 has now moved on to its email platform.

    Following makeovers for core tools such as Paint, Word and even Notepad, the company is now reportedly hard at work on a refresh for its Outlook email platform.

    The work, codenamed Project Monarch, will look to update email on Windows 11, offering a truly cross-platform experience for users looking to embrace hybrid working.

    One Outlook

    News of Project Monarch first appeared in January 2021 under rumors that Microsoft was looking to unite all its email programs under one brand, as well as replacing the current calendar app in Windows.

    It was said that the new client will work across Windows 10, Windows 11, macOS and the web, allowing Microsoft to replace its existing Outlook Win32, UWP and Outlook for Mac clients with one that offers a unified experience across platforms in a similar way to how Outlook for the web works.

    Now, WindowsLatest claims that new references on Microsoft's website suggest that the new program could see a public preview of the One Outlook app in late March or April 2022, before expanding to other Insider channels in the summer ahead of a general launch in autumn 2022.

    Both the classic and new One Outlook apps will be available simultaneously to begin with, giving users a chance to manage their switch over.

    The site claims that a Microsoft support document it has discovered shows that the new app interface will be similar to Outlook web. This includes the rounded corners and icons already seen in a raft of new Windows 11 apps as Microsoft looks to offer a unified design approach.

    The news comes after a series of recent updates and upgrades for Outlook as Microsoft looks to breathe new life into the software. 

    This includes an upcoming upgrade that will allow Outlook web users to customize the color of the events in their calendar app, the launch of spelling and grammar checks for Outlook on mobile platform, and another update to let users set a notice showing where they are working, whether that be at home, in the office, or elsewhere.

  • Nvidia could make a surprising move with RTX 4000 GPUs

    Nvidia might stick with the PCIe 4.0 interface with its next-gen Lovelace graphics cards, according to a fresh rumor.

    This comes from a prominent hardware leaker on Twitter, Kopite7kimi, who spilled a couple of fresh nuggets of info in some recent tweets about what will presumably be RTX 4000 GPUs (though Nvidia could depart from the obvious next step for the name).

    See more

    Existing Nvidia RTX 3000 GPUs (Ampere) use a PCIe 4.0 slot in the motherboard, but with Lovelace, Nvidia was thought to be possibly stepping up to PCIe 5.0.

    Mainly because Nvidia is adopting PCIe 5.0 with Hopper, its next-gen heavyweight (data center) GPUs, so it’d follow to some extent that Team Green might look to shift the incoming consumer graphics cards in that same direction. At the very least from a marketing point of view, particularly now that PCIe 5.0 is provided by Intel with the 12th-gen Alder Lake range, and the cutting-edge standard is expected to be adopted by AMD with next-gen Zen 4 processors that should debut later in 2022 (which is when Lovelace is scheduled to arrive).

    Furthermore, Nvidia is expected to use PCIe 5.0 power connectors with the RTX 4000 range – as already seen with the RTX 3090 Ti, in fact, given the GPU’s heavy power demands – so Lovelace will theoretically use PCIe 5.0 for power, but stick with that PCIe 4.0 interface.


    Analysis: Will we really need PCIe 5.0 before RTX 5000, anyway?

    While this might seem like an unusual situation to have a graphics card with PCIe 5.0 power but slotted into a PCIe 4.0 interface, it’s not really that surprising when you think about it more. As mentioned, the new 3090 Ti already does this, and is purportedly a test drive of sorts for RTX 4000 cards, if the rumor mill is to be believed (as Neowin, which reported on this, points out). Naturally, all of this remains speculation, so let’s not get carried away – we’re cautious about how much stock to put in this fresh rumor anyway.

    Still, it does make sense that Nvidia might want to keep PCIe 4.0 for the next-generation purely from a practical point of view. It would cost more to equip Lovelace graphics cards with the cutting-edge PCIe 5.0 interface, and to no real end – PCIe 4.0 already offers plenty of bandwidth.

    While PCIe 5.0 would provide future-proofing, of course, realistically by the time PCIe 4.0 is struggling to cope with gaming demands, Nvidia will likely be releasing RTX 5000 cards – and those can come with the PCIe 5.0 interface.

    In short, it doesn’t feel like there’s a compelling need to step up to PCIe 5.0 just yet, and the cost savings of sticking with PCIe 4.0 can likely be put to better use elsewhere in terms of juicing up Lovelace performance. So we won’t be particularly surprised if this turns out to be the case, or worried for that matter – the real concern about the RTX 4000 family for us is those rumors around huge levels of power consumption.

    With tales of Lovelace graphics cards pushing power usage up to 600W, or maybe even further – like 800W at the flagship level – this is definitely the biggest worry around the next-gen GPUs. What gamers don’t want is a situation where they have to think about upgrading their power supply as well as buying a new graphics card (with GPUs being more than expensive enough already, though at least inflated prices are finally coming down in recent times).

  • Nvidia's upgraded GeForce RTX 3080 12GB could be available for preorder today

    A French retailer has seemingly confirmed that preorders will be available later today for the GeForce RTX 3080 with 12GB GDDR6X memory, a refreshed version of the original RTX 3080 graphics card.

    Nvidia revealed a pair of new desktop graphics cards at CES 2022 – the RTX 3090 Ti and the RTX 3050, though things have been pretty quiet regarding an announcement for the refreshed RTX 3080.

    As reported by Videocardz, French retailer Materiel.net announced in a now-deleted tweet that it will begin taking preorders today at 3pm CET (2pm GMT / 9am EST / 6am PST) for the new GPU, despite no official announcement being made from Nvidia itself.

    It's unsurprising that Team Green didn't want to launch this on the same stage as the other two new GPUs announced at CES 2022 as the new version of the 3080 will apparently only have a slight increase in CUDA core count, bumping it up to 8,960 from the 8,704 cores in the current version of the RTX 3080, as well as a bump to 350W TDP from 320W.

    As usual with rumors, don't take any of this as gospel until we get an official announcement from Nvidia itself, though we have heard previous speculation that the RTX 3080 12GB was originally planned for a reveal at CES, but that was pushed back to January 11.

    We have reached out to Nvidia to confirm some additional details, such as if the GPU will also be available for preorder across other regions and a possible MSRP. If you're based in the UK or Europe at least, it might be wise to keep an eye on your favorite retailers for a preorder announcement.

    *Update* Since posting this article the RTX 3080 12GB has been officially revealed on the GeForce RTX 3080 product page on the Nvidia website, though no public announcement has been made. The anticipated specifications are now confirmed as correct, but there's still no word on any MSRP.


    Analysis: Don't get too excited

    The RTX 3080 12GB was first rumored back in December 2021 with much of the same specification information we're still seeing in more recent leaks, so the CUDA cores and TDP expectation do seem likely, but that makes it a very minor upgrade from the original RTX 3080 GPU.

    In fact, Nvidia may have originally planned to drop plans to create it at all, with Igor’s Lab reporting last month that it might not be announced after all. It's not uncommon for anticipated graphics cards to be canceled and then uncanceled behind the scenes before though so just take everything with a pinch of salt. 

    Materiel.net deleting its Tweet could also mean a few different things: it jumped the gun and broke an embargo, Nvidia wants this to be a quiet launch given the minimal difference between models (or potential low stock), or simply nothing is launching today at all.

    Given this is such a minor upgrade from the original RTX 3080, we also wouldn't bother trying to source one if you already have a current RTX 3080 in your system. This isn't something that bridges a 'gap' between the RTX 3080 and 3080 Ti, and we wouldn't need something to do that anyway given how much variety there is right now in the GPU market. If you are still looking for a GPU though, this could be worth keeping an eye on, especially if the price is right.

    We still need more stock and availability of existing RTX 3000 cards, and at a more affordable price, with prices still vastly inflated for even older models of AMD and Nvidia hardware. Sadly, it looks as though component shortages and supply problems aren’t going away any time soon – as Nvidia itself doesn't anticipate things improving in the next six months at least.
