Galaxy Tab S8 Series: Samsung offers an introductory offer for the best Android tablet of the moment
Samsung not only renewed its flagship range of smartphones with the Galaxy S22 in February, the manufacturer also presented three new high-end tablets. The Galaxy Tab S8, S8+ and especially the Tab S8 Ultra are shaking up the Android tablet market, and are the subject of a launch offer for the occasion.
Three models for three formats
With the Galaxy Tab S8 series, Samsung wants to meet all screen size needs. So we have a diagonal of 11 inches for the Tab S8, 12.4 inches for the Tab S8+ and a huge 14.6 inch panel for the Tab S8 Ultrawhich is larger than on some laptops.
The three references adopt the same image ratio of 16:10 and a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz. The screens are protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 glass. A notable difference is the use of TFT technology for the panel of the standard Galaxy Tab S8, while the Tab S8+ and Tab S8 Ultra are entitled to Super-AMOLED and support for the HDR10+ standard.
An increasingly neat design
The Galaxy Tab S8 series tablets are the thinnest and toughest Samsung has released in this range to date. The finishes in reinforced aluminum Effectively protect devices from bumps and drops. Note that the fingerprint reader is positioned on the edge of the Galaxy Tab S8, while it is integrated under the screen on the two most premium models.
Whichever Tab S8 you choose, it comes with a next-gen S Pen stylus which magnetically attaches to the back of the tablets for charging. It boasts ultra-low latency which makes it even more comfortable to handle than older S Pens.
Up to 16 GB of RAM
All three shelves are equipped with the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip, engraved in 4nm. A SoC whose performance is well known since it is embedded in the latest high-end smartphones in the Android ecosystem, and in particular on the Galaxy S22 series in the United States and China. A safe bet.
The Galaxy Tab S8 and S8+ start at 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage space, but can go up to 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal memory for their most muscular configuration. The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is available with 8, 12 or 16 GB of RAM and up to 512 GB of storage. A microSD card slot expands tablet space.
The Galaxy Tab S8 entrusts its autonomy to an 8000 mAh battery, while the Tab S8 + benefits from an accumulator of more than 10,000 mAh and the battery of the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra comes out at 11,200 mAh. What to hold very long hours !
Samsung’s new tablets support 45W wired charging power, allowing them to fully recharge in less than an hour and a halfsometimes for several days of employment.
Audio by AKG
One of the great strengths of Samsung tablets compared to the competition is the integration of four AKG speakers for immersive audio when playing media content.
The three Galaxy Tab S8 have the same rear camera with a 13 MP main sensor and f/2.0 aperture as well as 6 MP and f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle optics For the front camera, we are entitled to a little originality since the only module of the Tab S8 and S8+ is an ultra-wide-angle of 12 MP, f/2.4 and 120˚ field of view. The Tab S8 Ultra has the same module, but accompanied by a 12 MP and f/2.2 wide-angle sensor.
