Galaxy Tab S8, Watch 5, Buds Live 2 production roadmap leaks, and more


Last updated: November 23rd, 2021 at 15:26 UTC+01:00

Samsung’s alleged 2022 product manufacturing schedule for a handful of unreleased tablets, laptops, and wearables has leaked. According to this roadmap, Samsung has four Galaxy Tab S8 tablet models queued up for production, along with two lower-cost tablets, three laptop models, the Galaxy Watch 5, the Galaxy Buds Live 2, and the Buds Pro 2.

The Galaxy Tab S8, Tab S8+, and Tab S8 Ultra will reportedly enter mass production beginning with the first quarter of 2022. The Galaxy Tab S8 Lite, however, won’t hit the conveyor belts earlier than Q3 2022.

Samsung also appears to plan on manufacturing new Galaxy Tab A7 Lite and Tab A8 models for 2022, all throughout the year. As for laptops, the company seemingly wants to manufacture a new generation of Galaxy Book Pro and Pro 360 laptops beginning Q2.

Samsung to launch Galaxy Watch 5 and two earbud models next year

Assuming that the leaked roadmap is accurate (via The Elec / @FrontTron), Samsung wants to push the sequel to the Galaxy Watch 4 series, i.e., the Galaxy Watch 5, into mass production starting with the third quarter of 2022. There’s no mention of the Galaxy Watch 5 Classic or other models, but it’s fair to say that the roadmap is incomplete relative to Samsung’s entire product portfolio for 2022. There’s no mention of future foldable phones, for example, or other relevant Galaxy A devices.

The upcoming Galaxy Watch 5 could be accompanied by two pairs of wireless earbuds next year. The so-called Galaxy Buds Pro 2 should enter production in Q2, and Samsung reportedly plans to manufacture a sequel to the Galaxy Buds Live from Q3 onwards. If true, this means Samsung wants to continue developing and exploring both the conventional and the unconventional wireless earbud form factors concomitantly.

As for production figures, Samsung’s apparently planning to manufacture 33.6 million Galaxy tablets, 7.4 million Galaxy Book and Chromebook Go laptops, 19 million Galaxy Watch 5 units, and 23 million pairs of Buds Pro 2 and Buds Live 2 earbuds. Now, of course, this roadmap is not official, and even if it’s accurate, production schedules are subject to change, especially in this semiconductor shortage climate. Take it with a proverbial pinch of salt and all that.
