We still do not know if Samsung wants to announce the Galaxy Tab S8 slates at the upcoming MWC or with the S22 series. But the preparations for the launch have been going on for so long that all the significant details have been leaked out by this time, here they are as summarized by WinFuture.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra will be larger than most tablets with a huge 14.6 ”Super AMOLED screen. It will have a notch to accommodate the dual 12 MP cameras (wide and ultra wide), while keeping the frames around the screen quite thin. In any case, the screen will have 2,960 x 1,848 px resolution, 120 Hz refresh rate and maximum brightness of 420 nits.
Galaxy Tab S8 + will only be large, not huge, with a 12.7 “screen. No notch here. The Super AMOLED panel will also run at 120 Hz and will have a resolution of 2,800 x 1,752 px. The screens on all three models support S Pen input and will enjoy the protection of Gorilla Glass 5.
The smallest of the three, the Galaxy Tab S8, will still be quite large with an 11 ”screen – an LTPS LCD this time. Like its siblings (and like the Tab S7 before it), it will also offer 120 Hz refresh rate. The LCD panel will be even a bit brighter at 500 nits.
All three Tab S8 models will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset running Android 12 with Samsung UI 4.1 on top. The standard configuration will have 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, while the S8 and S8 + will have a 256 GB storage option, while the top configuration for Ultra will be 16/512 GB. All three will have a microSD slot.
