Samsung has 11-inch and 12.4-inch flagship tablets in the works
A report from SamMobile suggests that the South Korean giant is working on its Samsung Tab S6 successor models, featuring larger displays.

The two models, one 11-inch and one 12.4-inch, are currently in development, with each also having a Wi-Fi and cellular versions. They are to improve upon the Tab S6 in the camera, battery and processor departments, along with having better fast charging than the S6's 15W. It's also reasonable to assume that the upcoming models will be running Android 10 with One UI 2.1 on top, or newer, which the Galaxy Tab S6 itself only just recently received.

Samsung is one of few manufacturers to still regularly deliver flagship Android tablets, and this latest increase in screen size will finally compare to the iPad Pro's 11-inch and 12.9 inch variants.

With its currently available flagship model, the Galaxy Tab S6, Samsung has provided its users with both a great Android tablet experience and a competent desktop experience, as allowed by Google's operating system. The latter is thanks to Samsung Dex, which is a key feature for people looking to move away from conventional computers. It enables a familiar desktop user interface, which, when paired with a keyboard and a mouse can replace a conventional PC for many users. With tasks such as writing documents and school papers, or light photo and video editing being well within its capabilities.

Android 10 itself comes with a hidden and fairly underdeveloped desktop mode, though it could potentially be used to improve upon Samsung's Dex.

The upcoming flagship models are likely to be named Samsung Galaxy Tab S7, though Samsung could decide to go in a different, simplified naming direction.
