The unpacked event from Samsung is getting closer and closer, at which the new Galaxy Tab S8 could also be presented. The first technical details and product images are now also known and the tablets not only look good, they also have a lot to offer. In addition to a large display, there is also a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 under the hood of the Galaxy Tab S8.
- Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 could be officially presented on February 8, 2022.
- Three different models of the tablet appear.
- The device is characterized by a large display, a strong SoC and the dual camera.
In a few weeks, the unpacked event will take place in the run-up to MWC 2022. In addition to the Galaxy smartphones, the new Galaxy Tab S8 will also be presented there. The colleagues from WinFuture have now received the first technical information about the tablet and also show us the first product images of the tablet flagship from Samsung.
The tablet will appear in three different versions. The Galaxy Tab S8, S8 + and S8 Ultra, whereby the Ultra will of course be equipped with top-class technical gadgets. The largest model uses a 14.6 inch AMOLED display that runs at a refresh rate of 120 Hz. This should especially please gamers, as you shouldn’t experience any real screen tearing.
According to the information, the screen is up to 420 nits bright. The Tab S8 + also has a 12.7-inch AMOLED display and the Tab S8 an 11-inch LTPS TFT panel. The smallest display can, however, reach up to 500 nits. In addition, the smaller models will not receive a notch design, as is the case with the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra.
The finest technology in the Galaxy Tab S8
All three models have the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip that powers the tablets. The Galaxy Tab S8 and Galaxy Tab S8 + are each equipped with 8 GB of RAM and optionally between 128 GB and 256 GB of internal memory. The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, on the other hand, has a version with 8 GB or 16 GB of RAM and internal storage of either 128 GB or 512 GB. If that’s not enough, you can expand your storage space with a microSD.
All tablets also have a dual camera on the back with 13 megapixels (f / 2.0) and an ultra-wide-angle lens with 6 megapixels (f / 2.2). The front camera will be able to selfies with 12 megapixels (f / 2.4). For the software, Samsung relies on the combination of Android 12 and the One UI 4.1.
Fat 11000 mAh battery in the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra
In addition to a “Wi-Fi 6” connection, you also have the option of using 5G as the cellular standard. In the meantime, of course, this is nothing new, but devices keep appearing that are not able to do this – even in 2022. You can unlock the tablets with the facial recognition software and a “USB-C 3.2” interface serves as the USB standard .
The last distinction between the individual models is made in the size of the battery. The Galaxy Tab S8 uses a battery with 8,000 mAh, the S8 + uses 10,090 mAh and the Ultra has a battery capacity of 11,000 mAh. Another special feature of the tablets is the included S-Pen, which is otherwise only available as a special purchase from other well-known manufacturers.
So far there have been no leaks or information from dealers about the prices. There are estimates that put the Galaxy Tab S8 at 680 euros to 800 euros, the S8 + at 880 euros to 1100 euros and the S8 Ultra at 1040 euros to 1220 euros, but these are only vague assumptions. So it remains to be seen how the prices will look like in the end. The wait for the new tablets shouldn’t take too long, so we’ll soon know more about that too.
