With more  tablets  growing in screen size, the old saying may be true: bigger is better. Rumors about Samsung's follow-ups to the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 and its latest Galaxy Tab A suggest the company's next tablets may follow that motto by including larger display sizes that rival Apple's  iPad Pro

Samsung's  next flagship tablets, potentially dubbed the Galaxy Tab S7 or the Galaxy S20, started development about three weeks ago under the model numbers SM-T97x and SM-T87x, according to a report Tuesday from SamMobile. The upcoming tablet is rumored to offer larger screen sizes, with 12.4- and 11-inch options, and both Wi-Fi and LTE versions. 

Samsung didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

The Android tablet market is dwindling, but Samsung remains one of the few consistent makers in the category. Its previous tablet, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6, made CNET's list of best Android tablets.
