The Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 takes everything you love about the S7 Series to the next level. In addition to featuring an 11-inch LCD screen, the Tab S8 features 8GB of RAM and faster Wi-Fi speeds. But none of that matters if you don't have a solid case to protect your shiny new tablet. With that in mind, we've rounded up some of the best Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 cases available right now.
Built to last
The Spigen Rugged Armor Pro case features a bold, car-inspired design with carbon fiber details and a matte black finish. It's also compatible with the Spigen brand screen protector and includes Air Cushion Technology, which promises a snug fit and excellent shock absorption.
The Note View Cover from Samsung might just be the most interesting case that we've seen. The cover rests on the top of your screen, but is transparent, and makes it feel like you're actually jotting down notes or drawing in a notebook. This also keeps your screen protected while you're traveling around.
Durable & sleek
This cover features a durable, transparent PC back and TPU bumper to protect your Galaxy Tab S8's LCD touchscreen display. It also comes with built-in QuikCatch Lanyard holes to add straps for hands-free usage and a built-in pen holder designed to keep your S Pen safe and secure. The cover currently comes in both Clear and Smoke Black versions.
This case promises to protect your tablet "from all angles" while also retaining wireless charging capabilities. Perks include a built-in screen protector, port covers, a rugged polycarbonate back, and a shock-absorbing TPU bumper, as well as a pull-out kickstand for horizontal tablet orientation.
Grip & go
Poetic's TurtleSkin Series is made with kid-friendly, non-toxic silicone that's splash-proof and features a unique turtle shell pattern on the back for better grip. The case is also built to better absorb shock and features raised air vents that will prevent your tablet from overheating.
For laptop lovers
This low-profile case features durable PU leather on the exterior and an anti-slip rubber lining on the inside. It also includes a magnetically detachable Slim 7mm Bluetooth keyboard for those who want their tablet to double as a laptop, which doubles as part of the case's stand. S Pen magnetic and wireless charging is also supported when the case is on.
All the colors
This slim book cover case includes a magnetic cover that attaches firmly and securely to the back of your Galaxy Tab S8. It also comes in multiple colors and provides open-to-wake and close-to-sleep functionality, which both protects your screen and conserves battery life.
There are plenty of people who like having a bit of nostalgia invoked when using their different devices. This Smart Cover from Supveco should do the trick: it's designed to look like the composition notebook you used in school. It also provides easy access to your S Pen, along with automatically putting your Tab S8 to sleep when you flip over the folio cover.
From the source
Samsung's Book Cover Keyboard makes its return with the Galaxy Tab S8. It makes use of the pogo pins found on the bottom of your tablet, along with magnets, to provide a stable connection. And there's even a trackpad on the front so you don't have to reach up and touch the screen.
Who makes the best Galaxy Tab S8 cases?
When it comes to who is making the best covers for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8, it may be too early to tell. That being said, Spigen has established itself as one of the best and most consistent manufacturers of Tab covers and the sturdy Spigen Rugged Armor Pro case is no exception. Along those same lines, the Poetic Revolution Series case offers comparable protection and the added bonus of a built-in kickstand, while also costing a few bucks less.
If you're looking for a case that will still allow you to admire the color of your new Galaxy Tab S8, then the clear Ringke Fusion Case may be the better option for you. And if you'd rather find a cover that shows more personality the red Poetic Turtleskin Series case or one of the TiMOVO cases might be more to your liking.
No matter which case you choose, it's good to remember that a protected tablet is the most useful tablet to have. And if you want even more protection for the Galaxy Tab S8's most important feature — its display — then you'll want one of the best Galaxy Tab S8 screen protectors as well.
