Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 series: Comprehensive leaks
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 series, along with the company’s flagship Galaxy S22 series smartphones, are anticipated to be unveiled next week during a Galaxy Unpacked event.
The next Galaxy Tab series is expected to have three models: Galaxy Tab S8, Galaxy Tab S8 Plus, and Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra. And, ahead of the February 9 launch of the company’s flagship smartphones and tablets, official-looking images, as well as detailed specifications of the three tablets, have leaked online, giving enthusiasts an idea of what to expect from Samsung’s upcoming flagship tablet models.
It is famed tipster Evan Blass (via GSMArena) who has released images of the next Samsung Galaxy Tab S8, Galaxy Tab S8 Plus, and Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra. The language on the photos is in Italian, implying that they were obtained from Samsung’s regional website.
Under the hood, all three tablets are said to be powered by the newest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. According to previous reports, the tablets would be equipped with up to 16GB of RAM and up to 512GB of internal storage. Also, the tablets would have expandable storage.
According to the leaked photos, all three tablets will come with an S Pen and a USB Type-C to USB Type-C connector, but no in-box charger.
Galaxy Tab S8 specifications
The entry-level Tab S8 is expected to have an 8,000mAh battery with 45W charging support. The 11-inch (2,560×1,600 pixel) WQXGA LCD TFT display on this tablet is said to have a refresh rate of 120Hz. Prices should start at EUR 970 (~Rs 82,00).
