What you need to know

  • More renders of Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Tab S8 series have leaked.
  • The renders suggest the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra will be the only Tab S8 series device to feature a display notch.
  • Rumors suggest the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra will feature a 14.6-inch display and Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset.

Back in October, we got our first look at the design of Samsung's rumored Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra. New renders of the upcoming Galaxy Tab S8 series have now surfaced, courtesy of veteran leaker Evan Blass.

The latest renders reveal the Galaxy Tab S8 and Tab S8 Plus will look very similar to the Tab S7 series tablets. Samsung's Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, however, will have a "fresh" design with slimmer bezels and a notch in the top bezel. The leaked render of the Ultra model also suggests it will have two sensors on the front. It is likely that the second sensor could be used for a more secure face unlock feature.

Samsung's Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is rumored to come with a massive 14.6-inch display and Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. Samsung's vanilla Galaxy Tab S8 and Tab S8 Plus models are tipped to feature the Snapdragon 888 instead.

Like Samsung's best Android tablets, the Tab S8 Ultra is tipped to include S Pen support as well. Other rumored specs of the upcoming tablet include a quad-speaker setup and an 11,500mAh battery.

Samsung could introduce the Galaxy Tab S8 series sometime in the first half of next year. A recently leaked Samsung product roadmap revealed that the tablets are set to enter mass production in Q1 2022.

  • Lmao Samsung is so embarrassing. Makes fun of the notch and is now adding it to their next Tablet. Why not go with that double punch hole design like in their previous phones instead of adding the notch. Just adding it bec Apple has it so they can too, lol.
  • You do realize that Android brands were the first to have the notch, right? Apple did, what they always do, copied Android ;-) Nice try though mate.
  • Where's the notch? I don't see one. Confused.
  • Then get your eyes checked?
  • I don't notice it either.
  • You see where the buttons are at the top left? Now look to your right at the top middle and you ll see it. As the article states it's not so intrusive /noticeable like on the iPad /iPhone but it's there and it's still notch.
