Samsung Tab S7 Rumors, Price, Specs, Release Date

Posted on July 17, 2020.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 is Apple iPad Pro’s toughest competitor. It’s rumoured to be one of the best tablets for 2020 succeeding its predecessor the Galaxy Tab S6. The Galaxy Tab S6 was released in two variants – Tab S6 and Tab S6 Lite. We’re expecting the Galaxy Tab S7 to take on two forms as well. Will it be a lighter version or a bigger version with more features like 5G connectivity? It could take on a bigger screen with more features for productivity to beat the Apple iPad Pro as the best tablet overall for 2020.


Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 Release Date

August is full of surprises from Samsung. The major debut for the Galaxy Unpacked 2020 event is the Galaxy Note 20 series but we’re expecting the Galaxy Tab S7 to be launched alongside these flagships. You can check out the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2020 invitation video below:



Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 Price

There are no sources for the exact price yet, but we’re hoping it’s lower than the iPad Pro ($799) but also higher than the Galaxy Tab S6. The Galaxy Tab S7 price should be playing around a $699-up price range. It’s time to save up while we still have time. The Galaxy Tab S7 might be your next tablet for this year.


Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 Specifications

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 will have a bigger screen for more productivity. To top that up, the S7 Plus will have an AMOLED display that’s 266ppi – a sharper display compared to the iPad Pro’s 12.9” 264ppi. The fingerprint reader will also be placed inside the power button.


The Tab S7 Plus’ battery should run smoothly for long hours, even under full load. The Galaxy Tab S7 Plus is also expected to have a large 10, 090 mAh battery. Its processor will be a new Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus. It’s a more advanced processor with faster speed by than the 865 chip by 10%.


The Galaxy S20’s refresh rate is 120Hz. This smooth 120Hz technology can also be found in the Apple iPad Pro. It’s only rational to expect that the Galaxy Tab S7 should be designed with the same refresh rate. After all, we’re not expecting anything less.


Here’s the best Galaxy Tab S7 photo leak that shows us what we’re expecting for their product launch. It’s getting pretty exciting especially with their upgraded S-Pen which might gear the Samsung tablet to be convenient for artists as well.

Samsung doesn’t disappoint with the release of their flagship phones. The Samsung Galaxy Note 20’s rumoured specifications will serve as a tough competition against the iPhone 12’s release.


Galaxy Note 20 Rumored Specifications:


Here’s a comparative table on the Galaxy Note 10 series specifications alongside the rumoured Galaxy Note 20 series, so you’ll know what to expect.

We have to admit that the Galaxy Note 10 series will be a tough one to beat with its specifications now, but Samsung is dedicated to improving their flagship. What we see for the camera is similar with their Galaxy S20 Plus and Galaxy S20 Ultra.


Galaxy Note 20 Release Date:


Samsung announced its next product launch on August 05, 2020. The Galaxy Unpacked 2020 invitation video did not disclose which devices will be unveiled in the event but we’re hoping the Galaxy Note 20 is included.

  • Galaxy Fold 2
  • Galaxy Z Flip 5G
  • Galaxy Tab S7
  • Galaxy Tab S7+
  • Galaxy Watch 2

However, tweets have surfaced that the release is set on August 21. We’ll just have to keep watch on the two dates for the Note 20 reveal.



Galaxy Note 20 Price


The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 starts at $949. For the Galaxy Note 20, we are going to be expecting a higher value. Recent leaks are expecting the Note 20 to be much more expensive than its predecessors. Note 20 is predicted to start at $1,405. Better save up if you want this phone upgrade.


Galaxy Note 20 Upgraded S Pen


The best we see from the S Pen is that it can now act as a pointer. With its laser pointer feature, the S Pen can navigate around your phone and highlight texts and colours easily. It would be a comfortable feature when using the Samsung Dex. We’re hoping this isn’t just a rumour.

What is the Best Car Phone Holder for 5G Smartphones?

Posted on July 13, 2020.

A car phone holder is an incredibly useful car accessory to keep you hands-free while on the road. You can customize where you place it to give you the best viewing position – on your dashboard, windshield, vent, and more. Not only does it secure your device, but it also prevents you from breaking the law. Australia’s one of the countries with strict road laws. Distracted motorists can be fined up to a thousand dollars if you’re not careful with using your phone. Using your phone, in general, is prohibited unless you are only receiving calls through Bluetooth and using GPS/music – granted that it’s set up before you start driving on the road.


Competition between smartphones in the market is getting more intense each year. Each brand is struggling to improve cameras, storage, processors, and 5G network speed. Although purchasing a 5G smartphone would also depend on your location since not all countries are not yet 5G ready. Lucky enough, Telstra and Optus are already expanding 5G networks across Australia. If you own a 5G smartphone like a Samsung Galaxy S10 or Samsung Galaxy S20, Strike Alpha cradles are the mounts you should check out. Here are some of its features:



Strike Alpha Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G Car Cradle


Strike Alpha Car Cradle Features:

  • Unique and custom-designed for your phone unit. Its phone-specific design envelops your unit for a more secure hold.
  • Plug ‘N Play – If you decide to switch units like a switch to an iPhone from Samsung in the future you only need to replace the cradle head and click it to your existing car phone mount.
  • With antenna boosting tuned specifically to Australian networks. Just connect its internal passive antenna with an external antenna. We highly recommend our Strike Antennas to amplify your mobile signal. You can check out our antennas here.
  • With fast-charging capabilities using 12/24 volt charging with voltage spike protection

How to Pick a Good Phone Case

Posted on July 10, 2020.

Why do people normally need a phone case? It breaks your heart a little every time you accidentally drop your phone or spill water on it. It gives a slight panic, especially when you just bought your phone within a few months and think about the cracked screen you might get when it slips off your hand or drops to the ground face front. These are just some of the things we think about when we purchase phone cases. Let’s check what are the things we need to think about when picking a good phone case.


What Features Do You Need?

Some phones are designed with a kickstand that’s handy when you need to use your phone in a landscape position. For example, when you’re reading presentations, watching movies, or need to air out your phone at the back to prevent heating. Just prop up the kickstand and sit comfortably with landscape viewing.

Other manufacturers also design phone cases with cardholders. I’d say this is a handy feature if you use a card to tap on transportation. It might come as helpful if you’re that type that holds their phone while walking. Just place your transport card at the back of your phone and swipe it easily when getting on the bus or train.


How Much Protection Do You Need?

Are you going to a sandy place? Are you going to brave the snow skiing? Are you going to the beach? If you’re looking for protection when going on trips like these, brands like LifeProof are the phone case for you. LifeProof cases are designed for the outdoors. Their phone cases are stylish as well as rugged that are DropProof, WaterProof, SnowProof, and DirtProof. Check them out and see for yourself!


Do You Need a Rugged Case?

A rugged case is designed tougher than the typical phone case. It handles more abuse than the average case and can survive higher drops. You might want to consider investing in a rugged case, especially if your phone or tablet is worth $800 up.

Working in a harsh environment entails the need for a rugged case. Take into consideration the temperatures and possible hazards your device might need to absorb. Tough work conditions need rugged cases that at least meet MIL-STD-810G 516.7. Strike Rugged cases are one of the best options for the extra protection you need. It’s rugged, compact, can protect you in tough environments, and has a useful kickstand feature for your leisure time. It’s designed with enterprise-grade quality suitable for various industries and trusted to prevent damages to your device.

Best Mobile Broadband Booster for Your Home Network

Posted on June 15, 2020.

Signals from your mobile router can get patchy when you're far from the source, if obstructions are on the way, or you’re just generally in a rural area with a weak signal. Several other factors can affect your signal, but it becomes manageable once you use signal boosters. You’ll also notice that signals are sometimes weaker on the second floor or in certain areas of your home that are far from the router. When this happens, you would need a booster to amplify your existing signal to cover larger areas of your home.


Do You Need a Mobile Router Booster?
Consider purchasing mobile broadband boosters a long-term investment. Mobile broadband boosters are essential to prevent unstable network connection and provide an enhanced signal when you need it. Additionally, you can also use it anywhere you go. You can use it at home, in your office, car and other locations.


Telstra Netgear Nighthawk M1 Patch Lead & Magnetic Base Antenna Bundle


You might think, how exactly does a mobile reception booster work? Combine the work of a patch lead, exterior antenna, and the signal coming from your router. The patch lead serves as a converter to connect your router with the exterior antenna. The antenna then takes the existing signal around your location and rebroadcasts it to the area with a weak signal or no reception.


Strike provides the best mobile broadband booster value pack that improves the performance of your router to prevent unstable network and dropped calls for home, mobile, and office use. Strike antennas are suitable for all wireless broadband modems and mobile phones. We have boosters for the Telstra Netgear Nighthawk M1, Telstra WiFi 4G advanced and Optus 4G LTE which you can check out here. Our mobile broadband value pack includes a patch lead and Strike antenna to boost your connection by 7.0 dBi gain. Choose from a bullbar mount antenna or magnetic base antenna – whichever is more suitable for your use.


Strike is the best solution for boosting mobile broadband signal. Check out our antennas and patch leads! Be wary with patch leads because these aren’t generic and you’ll need the right one for your phone or mobile broadband. Send us an email at [email protected] if you need assistance.
