Android tablets have been left out of focus by many companies for the past few years. That hasn't been the case for Samsung, which has consistently pioneered the Tab series. This year is no different for Samsung, adding the new Galaxy Tab S8 to the lineup.
Coming in three different sizes, the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is a behemoth of a tablet. To give you an idea, the official measurements are 208.6 x 326.4 x 5.5 millimeters. That's four Galaxy S22 Ultra's side by side. To add to this, the Tab S8 Ultra features a 120Hz SuperAMOLED display.
The smaller versions are the Galaxy Tab S8+ and Galaxy Tab S8, which are 12.4 inches and 12.4 inches, respectively. While both of these panels are 120Hz, the Tab S8+ is SuperAMOLED while the S8 is LCD.
The Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra takes the cake with memory and storage, clocking in at 16GB RAM and 512GB of storage. The Galaxy Tab S8 and S8+ offer 8GB and 12GB RAM variants with 128GB and 256GB of storage.
Internally, all tablets share a common Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, 13MP + 6MP ultrawide cameras on the back, S Pen support and optional 5G and LTE.
The most exciting thing about these tablets is the update policy that backs them. All of the Tab S8 line gets four years of major Android updates and five years of security updates.
