Samsung may have launched the appealing Galaxy Tab S7 FE this year and the Galaxy Tab A7 Lite, but they didn’t launch any flagship tablets. The Galaxy Tab S8 series is going to cater to those needs and the device doesn’t seem to be leaking as much as the other two models. At least there’s a glimmer of hope, since the Tab S8 and Tab S8+ have both been listed on Samsung’s website this week.
A dedicated Samsung Care+ page from the Samsung Romania official website mentions casually the names of the Tab S8 and Tab S8+. Based on previous rumors, the devices are expected with a new flagship CPU from Qualcomm, probably the Qualcomm Snapdragon 898. That CPU is slated to debut in December 2021, so we’ll have to wait a bit for the tablets to pop up.
We also know that the new slates will come with fast charge, at 45W and also they’ll run One UI 4.0 with Android 12 in the background. Other leaks revealed that the Tab S8 will have an 8000 mAh battery inside, while the Tab S8+ uses a 10.090 mAh unit. There’s even a Tab S8 Ultra planned with a 11.500 mAh battery. Diagonals will be 11 inches, 12.4 inches an 14.6 inches.
S-Pen support is expected, as well as lots of RAM, high refresh rates and quad if not octa speakers.
