But you don’t have to wait for the official announcement to learn about its key features and appearance. Today, the tablet lineup was spotted in all its glory.
According to the leaked press release information, the Galaxy Tab S8 series has the following hardware specifications:
The Galaxy Tab S8 features an 11-inch LPTS TFT display with a 2560 x 1600 resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. It also offers 8/12GB of RAM and 128/256GB of expandable storage. There is a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.

The Tab S8+ and Tab S8 Ultra will come with an in-display fingerprint sensor.
Aside from dimensions, selfie camera, fingerprint sensor placement, and battery capacity, the new Samsung tablets are basically the same. They all come with the 4nm Snapdragon 8 flagship chipset, support for the S Pen, they also support 45W super-fast charging, etc. However, the battery capacity varies. The Galaxy Tab S8 has an 8,000mAh battery, the Galaxy Tab S8+ has a 10,090mAh battery, and the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra has an 11,200mAh battery.
Apart from hardware, any device needs good software to provide good performance. In this sense, Samsung seems to be making a big splash with the Galaxy Tab S8 lineup. According to leaked information, the Galaxy Tab S8 will be the first Samsung tablet to feature LumaFusion, a powerful video editing tool.
Additionally, Samsung enables Clip Studio Paint users to connect their Galaxy smartphones and Tab S8 tablets and turn the small-screen device into an S Pen’s toolset. This is great for artists who might want to use the Tab S8’s entire screen as a digital canvas, without UI elements obscuring it.
Samsung claims that the new armored aluminum structure allows the Galaxy Tab S8 series to have 40 percent less curvature than the Galaxy Tab S7. Additionally, the aluminum frame is 30% less likely to be scratched than the material previously used.
Our protagonists are scheduled to go on sale on the 25th of this month. The first markets they will hit are the United States, Europe, and South Korea.
