Samsung will continue to challenge Apple’s iPad product line in the tablet sector at the Unpacked launch on August 5. Citing information shared bymedia gizmodo, Samsung plans to launch two tablet devices at the launch, one of which will target Apple’s iPad Pro family.
Both Samsung tablets are codenamed “Palette”, according to people familiar with the matter. Given the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 codenamed “Canvas” (canvas), there is a hint that Samsung will go all out in its new flagship product line.
Unlike the information leaked last week, it is unclear whether the names of the two tablets could belong to the Galaxy Tab S series. Currently, Samsung’s internals are only distinguished by “Palette 1” and “Palette 2”.
According to the source, Palette 1 has a larger screen area, more responsive, more powerful, comparable notebook performance, and a better design to support the new and improved S Pen. It has been reported that the S Pen on the Note 20 series will use metal and will improve in many ways. It is believed that the Palette 1 tablet will also use the same S Pen as the Note 20 Series.
The Palette 2 will focus more on screen quality, with a 120Hz refresh rate, while Palette 1 is supposed to be a 90Hz refresh rate. Both tablets promise to work like computers and offer improved keyboards, multi-finger recognition and S-Pens, though the details are unclear.
The document also stresses that both products are cheaper than the iPad Pro at the same price. There are three variants of Palette 1, with WiFi, 4G and 5G options, with prices of 629 pounds, 729 pounds and 799 pounds, respectively. The Palette 2 is WiFi or 5G, and from the information we’ve heard, there are no 4G variants, which cost 799 pounds and 999 pounds, respectively.
