Galaxy Tab S8 uses the same S Pen as the Tab S7, FCC filings reveal


Last updated: January 12th, 2022 at 18:08 UTC+02:00

As many of you know, Samsung is developing a new flagship tablet series comprising three primary models and a Lite variant. The upcoming Galaxy Tab S8 series will succeed the Tab S7 duo of flagships, and the base Galaxy Tab S8 model appears to have passed through the FCC earlier this week. The FCC documents include details on the S Pen.

Unsurprisingly, the Galaxy Tab S8 lineup will support the S Pen. This input device is the perfect match for a high-end tablet, and the Galaxy Tab S8 is precisely that. As for the exact S Pen model, the Galaxy Tab S8 will be paired with the same S Pen that shipped with the Galaxy Tab S7 — model number EJ-PT870, as per the FCC documents.

The S Pen experience may yet improve

The Galaxy Tab S8 S Pen may not bring many changes, but the user experience may yet improve. In fact, most improvements to the S Pen experience over time — such as lower response times — came from upgrades that Samsung brought to the digitizer and other display components rather than the input device itself.

It’s also worth noting that, so far, only the base Galaxy Tab S8 model (Wi-Fi and 5G) appears to have hit the FCC, so as yet, there’s no guarantee that the Tab S8 Ultra model will share the same S Pen.

Other recent regulatory filings have revealed the tablets in real photos, and their display bezels are about as thin as you’d suspect based on previously leaked renders.
