Samsung’s Unpacked event is fast approaching, which could also see the launch of the new Galaxy Tab S8. The first technical details and product images are now also known and the tablets not only look good, they also have a lot on the box. 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 as early as 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 variants. 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 please gamers in particular, since you should not 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 has an 11-inch LTPS TFT panel. However, the smallest display can reach up to 500 nits. The smaller models will also not have a notch design, as is the case with the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra.
Technology at its finest in the Galaxy Tab S8
All three models feature the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip powering the tablets. The Galaxy Tab S8 and the Galaxy Tab S8+ are each equipped with 8 GB of RAM and a choice of between 128 GB and 256 GB of internal memory. The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, on the other hand, comes in versions with 8 GB or 16 GB of RAM and either 128 GB or 512 GB of internal storage. If that’s not enough, you can expand your storage space with a microSD.
All tablets also get 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 take selfies with 12 megapixels (f/2.4). Samsung relies on the combination of Android 12 and One UI 4.1 for the software.
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 a mobile communications standard. In the meantime, of course, this is nothing new, but devices that are not able to do this keep appearing – even in 2022. You can use the face recognition software to unlock the tablets and a “USB-C 3.2” interface serves as the USB standard .
The last distinction between the individual models is 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 are no leaks or information from dealers about the prices. Although 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, these are all just vague guesses. So it remains to be seen what the prices will look like in the end. The wait for the new tablets shouldn’t be too long, so we’ll know more about that soon.
