The new Galaxy Tab S8 Series comes to townSamsung Electronics announced its new Galaxy Tab S8 series, the Galaxy Tab S8 and S8+, and Tab S8 Ultra tablet in the lineup, which the company claimed is the biggest, boldest display and most powerful performance Galaxy Tab S has ever offered. 

Sophisticated hardware, premium productivity features, and the seamless ecosystem Galaxy users count on are combined in a single portable productivity powerhouse, designed to be your perfect companion, the electronics giant said, in a statement. 

The Galaxy Tab S8 series offers freedom and flexibility you deserve to work and play anywhere, it added.

Samsung said each Galaxy Tab S8 offers an improved video conferencing experience with ultra-wide front cameras, a three-microphone setup, and intelligent auto-framing technology for a truly professional video call experience. 

It said the tablets offer multitasking capabilities with enhanced multi-active Window and Samsung DeX, safe and easy file sharing with password-protected quick share, and powerful productivity with the new, super-fast 4nm processor and a smoother than ever S pen in the box. 

All this is packed into the thinnest and toughest armor aluminum body for greater portability, and to enhance your mobile experience further, Galaxy Tab S8 series works hand-in-hand with your full ecosystem of Galaxy devices, with features like second screen and buds auto switch, Samsung said.

“As we rely more on videos to stay connected and entertained, we know that a tablet’s most compelling feature is its large screen and portability,” said TM Roh, president and head of MX Business at Samsung Electronics. 

“We built on years of innovation in mobile experiences to refine the Galaxy Tab S8 series, and to push the boundaries of what’s possible on a tablet with the first Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra,” he said.


The Galaxy Tab S8 sports an expansive 14.6-inch Super AMOLED display and 120Hz refresh rate,

It also boasts Galaxy Tab’s thinnest bezels at 6.3mm for a maximum screen-to-body ratio for a truly immersive experience.

Its display is housed in the thinnest, lightest, but strongest body yet, protected by an armor aluminum frame that is over 30% more scratch-resistant and 40% less prone to bending than Galaxy Tab S7, Samsung said.

Equipped with powerful dual 12MP front cameras, the tablet also transforms your video call experience with professional 4K video quality.

Advanced hardware meets software with Samsung’s auto-framing technology that automatically keeps you in focus during a call, while also zooming in or out to include new participants as they join you, Samsung said.

You’ll also sound as clear as you look, thanks to three precision microphones that use advanced noise reduction technology.

Quad Speakers with Dolby Atmos are found on all three Galaxy Tab S8 models, ensure that everything sounds incredible, with lifelike detail and clarity.

Equipped with the fastest processor in a Galaxy Tab – a 4nm chip, the Galaxy Tab S8 and S8+ also provides ample RAM and storage for any task, Samsung said.

If you need more, Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra packs in 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage, and all three models offer expandable storage by up to 1 TB with an optional microSD card.

The Galaxy Tab S8 series is fueled by an intelligent all-day battery that supports hours of video playback when you’re in the middle of a movie marathon. It also supports 45W super-fast charging that can get you back to 100% in 80 minutes, Samsung claims.

The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra and S8+ both come with a new and improved S Pen that uses a prediction algorithm for ultra-low latency, delivering an incredible writing experience that mimics gliding a pen across paper.

And for the first time, Samsung’s exclusive partnership with Clip Studio Paint can turn your smartphone into a digital colour palette, your S Pen into a paintbrush, and Galaxy Tab S8’s expansive screen into your canvas, Samsung said.

Samsung has ensured that Samsung’s One UI 4 user interface offers you a consistent and intuitive experience, seamless connectivity as well as smart integrations that flow from your Galaxy Tab S8 to smartphone and PC and back again.

You can also turn Galaxy Tab S8 into a portable second monitor with touchscreen capabilities for Galaxy PCs for side-by-side multitasking.

And enhancements to Samsung Dex, a convenient desktop experience that takes the Galaxy Tab S8 from tablet mode to desktop mode now allows transparent app windows and DeX mirroring for when you want to share your tablet’s screen on an external display.
