The Android tablet market is relatively barren, with just a few manufacturers paying attention and launching quality products worth our time discussing. Samsung is one of these companies. Android tablet buyers will soon have a new series of Galaxy Tab devices to pick from, including the Galaxy Tab S8, Galaxy Tab S8+, and Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra.
After going through the specifications, it seems that the Galaxy Tab S8 range is not here to play games, according to a big-time gadget render and information leak courtesy of WinFuture. These are the items that are packaged with the merchandise.
Let’s start with the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra. This device is said to have a 14.6-inch Super AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 120Hz (2960 x 1848), a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, 8GB/128GB and 16GB/512GB RAM and storage configurations, microSD support, S Pen support, an 11,200mAh battery, solid rear-facing cameras, Fast Charging, wireless DeX, and Android 12. (One UI 4.0).
Pricing for such a beast of an Android tablet is unclear, but you can bet it will be quite pricey.
The Galaxy Tab S8 and S8+ are also available. Neither of these sounds very horrible. The smaller S8 tablet has an 11-inch LTPS TFT panel with a refresh rate of 120Hz (2560 x 1600), the same Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, 8GB RAM, two storage choices (128GB or 256GB), S Pen compatibility, an 8,000mAh battery, and the same Android 12 OS.
The Galaxy Tab S8+ is similar but bigger. It has a 12.7-inch display with Super AMOLED and, yep, it runs at 120Hz. Other basic specifications include an SD8 Gen 1 CPU, the same RAM and storage choices as the smaller S8, and a bigger 10,090mAh battery.
We will surely keep you informed on price and availability information for these devices, but anticipate them to be released around MWC time, which this year is late February. Samsung usually accomplishes things on its own first, so we’re probably getting close.
