    Galaxy Tab S9 will be getting a colorful upgrade

    Samsung appears to have some big plans for its upcoming Galaxy Tab S9 high-end tablet series, and an upgraded display for the base model is now among the expected changes for the 2023 lineup.

    Both the base Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Tab S8 models featured an LCD panel instead of a Super AMOLED panel, but this division between display technologies will no longer apply to the 2023 models.

    Or, at the very least, the base Galaxy Tab S9 will abandon the TFT LCD and use AMOLED in its stead, said Ross Young (@DSCCRoss) in a conversation with SamMobile.

    AMOLED is a vastly superior display solution

    There are many advantages to using AMOLED instead of LCD technology, including improved battery life, brighter colors, better contrast, and the possibility to use features such as the Always-On display with lower battery drain.

    Samsung will no longer treat the standard Galaxy Tab S9 as a smaller as well as cheaper version of the other two tablets but as a more compact alternative, boasting a similar display technology to the more expensive variants.

    This upgrade may be possible because, according to recent benchmarks, Samsung appears to be working on two new Fan Edition tablets rather than one. The Galaxy Tab S9 FE might be a series consisting of two models, and they might use LCD instead of AMOLED.

    It's unclear when Samsung may want to unveil the Galaxy Tab S9 series, but it could happen this summer or at the next major Unpacked event, where the company plans to unveil the next-gen Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy Z Fold 5. Some rumors even suggest that Samsung may announce its first foldable tablet later this year, but right now there's no guarantee of that happening.

    For the time being, we're pretty confident that the Galaxy Tab S9 series will consist of a base, Plus, and Ultra model, and possibly two Fan Edition tablets instead of one.
