With the presence of a notch, the design of the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra may not be unanimous. Samsung would therefore follow in the footsteps of Apple and its new MacBook Pro.
Scheduled for early next year, Samsung’s new tablets, the Galaxy Tab S8 will not escape the traditional pre-release leaks a priori. Evan Blass (@evleak on Twitter) is a leaker known for the reliability of his information and it is to him that we owe the photos of the new models.
If the Galaxy Tab S8 and S8 Plus strongly resemble the 7 series, the S8 Ultra stands out from the others by the presence of a notch that risks dividing users in view of the reactions that that of the new MacBook Pro, yet presented as a good way to give more space to users, could raise.
Among the various leaks around the new Samsung tablets, some reveal some of the characteristics of the different models. Unlike the images from Evan Blass who is reputed to be reliable, and which correspond to the renderings published by 91mobiles, those concerning the characteristics should be taken with more care.
Regarding the screens, the S8 should be equipped with an 11-inch LCD panel with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. As for the Plus version, it would offer a 12.4-inch AMOLED screen at 120 Hz. The Ultra should offer a 14.6-inch OLED screen (with a notch). The fingerprint sensor would be integrated on the ignition button for the whole series.
Regarding the other characteristics, the tablets would embed:
- a Snapdragon 888
- 8 GB of RAM for the S8 and 12 GB for the Plus version
- various storage options from 128 to 512 GB
Knowing that the Galaxy Tab S7 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus, the switch to the Snapdragon 888 would seem like a consistent development for the next generation.
However, between the time this information was published by The Galox and the release of the Tab S8, Qualcomm released its new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 which could offer alternative configuration to the S8 Plus and S8 Ultra.
Either way, the next generation tablet will most likely be showcased at CES 2022 which will take place in a new hybrid formula, leaving only a few weeks to wait to be fixed.
