A section of Samsung workforce and mindshare must be devoted to their forthcoming flagship tablet series: Galaxy Tab S8. And as the expected date of launch (which is deemed to be in early 2022) gets closer, the tablets have started appearing on benchmarks sites such as Geekbench.
Galaxy Tab S8 Series on Geekbench
Last week, Tab S8 Plus was seen on Geekbench, which had the model number X808U and now Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra has been spotted by Mukul Sharma with model number SM-X906.
According to Geekbench, the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra and Tab S8 Plus share a chipset codenamed ‘taro’. Reportedly, ‘taro’ is the codename for Snapdragon 8Gen1, which is a rumored name of Snapdragon 898 chipset by Qualcomm. Both are seen featuring an 8GB RAM.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra Expected Specs
Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is expected to come with a 14.6-inch AMOLED panel and a high 120Hz refresh rate. Reports claim that it will be available in 8GB/12GB RAM variants with 512GB internal storage capacity. It will run on Android 12 with One UI skin on top.
In the past, a few renders of Tab S8 and S8 Ultra have been leaked by OnLeaks.
The renders reveal that S8 Ultra will have a different design and thinner bezels than the previous Galaxy tablets. The tab has 2 rear-facing cameras, antenna lines, and a magnetic holder for an S Pen. It will measure 325.8×207.9×5.4mm which makes it extremely slim and taller than the predecessor, i.e., Galaxy Tab S7 Plus.
There are speculations that Tab S8 Ultra might be Samsung’s iPad Pro 12.9 challenger for next year.
