If you want a high-end Android tablet, Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Tab S7+ are your best bet. The two tablets which launched last year with Android 10 have begun to get the upgrade to Android 11 along with the new One UI 3.1 update. A new update coming to the two tablets this quarter will bring new S Pen and Galaxy Buds Pro features.
S Pen Features
One of the coming features will allow you to use the stylus to handwrite in boxes you would usually have to type in, for example, the address bar in a browser. So rather than type out the URL, you will be able to write it out with the tablet’s stylus. The same applies to the text bar in messages and the search bar in YouTube. When a user is done writing, the handwritten text is turned into typed text.
The Samsung Notes app will also get a “Pen to Text” option that allows you to write naturally and have it converted instantly to digital text. Samsung says users can also draw symbols for certain functions such as a ‘v’ between words to put a space between them and a ‘⌒’ to join two words together. The feature will be available in over 80 languages and can detect punctuations and spacing.
This feature will be available in late February via an update in select markets. It can be activated by going to Settings > Advanced Feature > S Pen > S Pen to text, or to Settings > General management > Samsung Keyboard settings > S Pen to text.
Snap, Scan, and Edit with Samsung Notes
The Samsung Notes app will now let users scan and edit documents from within the app itself. Normally, folks can use the camera app on the Galaxy Tab S7 series to scan a document. However, by building the feature into the Notes app directly, users can scan and edit the document directly. All you have to do is select the attachment icon (paper clip), choose scan, and once you are done, you can edit it right away.
360 Audio via Galaxy Buds Pro
360 Audio is Samsung’s answer to Apple’s Spatial Audio. The feature, launched with the Galaxy Buds Pro, allows you to not only enjoy 360° surround sound when watching a video but will also sync the audio with the movement of your head thanks to a motion-tracking sensor.
The feature is available on select Galaxy smartphones and tablets (Galaxy S20 series, Galaxy Note 10 series, Galaxy Z Fold series, Galaxy Z Flip, Galaxy Tab S7 series, and Galaxy Tab S6 series) running One UI 3.1.
