Samsung launches a flagship Android tablet every year. We got the Galaxy Tab S7+ last year. It was accompanied by a more affordable version in the form of the Galaxy Tab S7. Samsung has just added another model to that lineup, the Galaxy Tab S7 FE.
Perhaps this third model of the Galaxy Tab S7 was a sign of things to come. It appears that Samsung will be launching three new high-end Galaxy Tab S8 models this year. One of them might be the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, a tablet so bonkers that you'll be blown away.
Samsung's new tablet lineup is going to be off the charts
Details of Samsung's upcoming tablet lineup have leaked from South Korea. It appears that the company conducted a survey in which it provided some details about the new devices. Samsung may be launching three new models at the same time. The new high-end tablet is codenamed “Basquait.”
Basquait 1 would thus be the entry-level model. It will feature an 11-inch TFT 120Hz display with an 8,000mAh battery and 45W charging. The “fastest next-gen” processor will be onboard along with 8GB RAM and 128/256GB storage. The tablet will be 0.63cm thick with a dual camera setup at the back.
Basquait 2 would basically be the Galaxy Tab S7+'s successor. It's said to feature a 12.4-inch OLED 120Hz display with a 10,090mAh battery and 45W charging. It's also going to have the same processor with 8GB RAM and 128/256GB storage. The tablet will weigh 575g and measure 0.57cm thick. An in-display fingerprint sensor will also be present.
Finally, Basquait 3 would be what Samsung might launch as the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra. It will feature a truly massive 14.6-inch OLED 120Hz display. This is laptop territory that we're entering in now. The tablet will measure an impressive 0.55cm thin and weigh 650g. It will have a chunky 12,000mAh battery that also supports 45W charging. The same processor will be paired with 8/12GB RAM and 128/512GB storage respectively.
An S Pen will be included with each model. These new tablets will also feature quad speakers, an 8-megapixel front and a 13/5MP dual camera setup at the back with flash. The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra will have a dual 8MP and 5MP ultra-wide camera setup at the front.
Samsung will also be shipping a new premium keyboard accessory for these tablets. It will support a variety of different modes for added versatility during use, allowing for a 165-degree field of view.
All three models will have Wi-Fi, LTE and 5G models. Prices for what may be called the Galaxy Tab S8, Galaxy Tab S8+ and the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra will start at $740, $1,120 and $1,320 respectively based on the conversion from Korean Won.
