Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Series – Biggest, Boldest, Most Versatile

Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Series

Samsung just announced its new Galaxy Tab S8 Series: The Galaxy Tab S8 5G/Wi-Fi and S8+ 5G, and the first ever Tab S8 Ultra 5G.

The Galaxy Tab S8 Series offers users the freedom and flexibility they deserve to work and play anywhere like never before. Each Tab offers an improved video conferencing experience with ultra-wide front cameras, three-microphone setup, and intelligent audio-framing technology. It also offers multitasking capabilities with enhanced Multi-Active Windows and Samsung DeX, and safe and easy file sharing with password-protected Quick Share.

“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. 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 5G.”

Said TM Roh, President & Head of MX Business at Samsung Electronics.

The First Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra 5G

The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra 5G offers a premium tablet experience unlike any before. It has an expansive 14.6-inch Super AMOLED display and 120Hz refresh rate. It also boasts the thinnest ever bezels in a Galaxy Tab. The device also has the thinnest, lightest, but strongest body, protected by Armor Aluminum frame.

Equipped with powerful dual 12MP front cameras, the new Tab also transforms your video call experience with professional 4K video quality. Samsung’s auto-framing technology automatically keeps you in focus during a call, while also zooming in and out to include new participants. Its three precision microphones use advanced noise reduction technology to prevent unwanted background chatter. Finally, it has Quad Speakers with Dolby Atmos to ensure that everything sounds incredible.

Work, Play, and Connect Like Never Before

Equipped with the fastest 4nm chip, the new series of tablets lets users do their task with ease. The series is also the first Samsung tablet to support Wi-Fi 6E, which provides up to double the bandwidth and maximum speed of Wi-Fi 6. Alternatively, users can also use the hyperfast and secure Galaxy 5G.

Fueled by an intelligent all-day battery, the new Tab series 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. It also has reverse charging support, so it can also double as a portable charger for your other devices.

S Pen

The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra 5G and S8+ 5G both come with a new and improved S Pen. The S Pen uses a prediction algorithm for ultra-low latency, delivering an incredible writing experience. Samsung also had an exclusive partnership with Clip Studio Paint. It turns your smartphone into a digital color palette, your S Pen into a paintbrush, and the Galaxy Tab S8’s screen into a canvas. Its expansive screen also makes it easy to split the screen into multiple, resizable windows. This makes it easy to multitask without having to toggle between apps.

Life Opens Up with Galaxy

The new series of tablets performs seamlessly with the entire open Galaxy ecosystem. It gives users the flexibility to define their own mobile experience and easily use Galaxy devices together. When inspiration strikes, use the S Pen to jot down reminders in a new and improved Samsung Notes app on the Tab S8 series. You can then pull them up on your smartphone later for easy reference. Quick Share enables you to share photos, videos, and files between devices twice as fast as before. You can also turn the Tab into a portable second monitor with touchscreen capabilities for Galaxy PCs.

Standout Sustainable Design

Samsung is also proud to help reduce ocean-bound plastic and protect the planet. The devices are partially constructed with plastic components repurposed from discarded fishing nets. The new devices also come in the company’s slimmest packaging to date, made from sustainably-sourced paper. This enables the company to lower emissions, and produce less waste.
