New rumor reveals just how massive the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra’s battery might be


Last updated: July 27th, 2021 at 11:31 UTC+02:00

Samsung’s next flagship tablet series is expected to be the Galaxy Tab S8. And, similar to its flagship Galaxy S series of phones, Samsung will be making three Galaxy Tab S8 models. There’s going to be the usual Galaxy Tab S8 and Galaxy Tab S8+ but also a Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra. When we first heard about these tablets, the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra was said to feature a massive 14.6-inch screen and an equally massive 12,000 mAh battery, but if a new rumor is to be believed, the latter figure might be a tad smaller.

Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra’s battery capacity will still be impressive

According to Ice universe on Twitter, the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra will have a battery capacity of 11,500 mAh. That’s still plenty big, of course, and a notable step-up from the Galaxy Tab S7+’s 10,090 mAh battery, so we’re sure most consumers won’t be complaining. The Galaxy Tab S8+, meanwhile, will have the same battery capacity as the Tab S7+. The Galaxy Tab S8 is expected to have the same 8,000 mAh battery as the Tab S7, though nothing is mentioned about that model in today’s leak.

It’s also interesting to note that like the Galaxy S22, the Galaxy Tab S8 will bring about a slightly different model number scheme to Samsung’s flagship tablets. Instead of SM-Txxx, the Tab S8 lineup will be denoted by SM-Xxxx – SM-X70x for the Tab S8, SM-X80x for Tab S8+, and SM-X90x for the Tab S8 Ultra. This is something we can confirm based on our own sources.

Galaxy Tab S8 series arriving early next year… or is it?

The Galaxy Tab S8 series isn’t expected to arrive until next year, though a lot of their specs are already known. The three models should feature 11-inch, 12.4-inch and 14.6-inch 120Hz OLED screens, the next-gen Snapdragon processor, 8/12GB of RAM and 128/256/512GB of storage, S Pen support, and quad speakers. All three models could share a 13MP+5MP dual rear camera setup, and the Tab S8 Ultra could also get a dual camera setup at the front.

Prices will apparently start at $740, $1,120 and $1,320 (based on conversion from Korean won). As usual, none of this information is to be taken as fact at this time, even if much of it came from what seemed like an official survey conducted by Samsung. And, with the worldwide chip shortage not expected to subside anytime soon, it’s even possible these tablets will be delayed beyond whatever time frame Samsung is currently targeting for their release, so it’s best not to get too excited just yet.
