Looks like the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra will be extremely hard to find

We’re still waiting for Samsung’s yearly launch of new flagship tablets. The company was supposed to launch the Galaxy Tab S8 lineup in 2021 but that hasn’t happened as yet. That might have something to do with the chip shortage.

Or it might be because Samsung will now launch three new models of its flagship tablet. That’s not something it has done before. The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra will be the top-of-the-line absolutely bonkers model.

Samsung might not produce a lot of Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra units

Earlier leaks have revealed that the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra will feature a massive 14.6-inch OLED 120Hz display. The tablet will have a next-gen processor, up to 12GB of RAM, a 12,000mAh battery and 45W charging support. The S Pen will also ship with this tablet.

Samsung is said to introduce a new ultrathin display bezel technology with the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra. This will enable the tablet to have very slim bezels. That’s something a lot of customers might appreciate.

That is if those customers are able to buy the tablet in the first place. New rumors out of South Korea suggest that the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra will be in extremely short supply at launch. Only a small quantity of units will be made available in limited markets.

It’s even claimed that Samsung won’t be making many extra units once the launch stock runs out. This might not have something to do with the chip shortage. There are apparently issues with the production yield of the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra’s display.

The price of this display panel is rumored to be high as well. The higher production cost might not result in the kind of margins that Samsung might want. So it will launch the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra just to prove a point. Only customers in select markets may be able to buy one as long as it remains in stock.

That’s not an ideal situation but the tablet has to make business sense for Samsung. If this rumor is anything to go by, the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra doesn’t.
