Samsung released three Galaxy Tab S7 series Android tablets, and reports suggest that three successors will be released in 2022, each with enhanced specs and a massive 14.6-inch AMOLED screen on the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra model. Now, OnLeaks and Zouton US have teamed up to give us our first glimpse at the Galaxy Tab S8 in silver, which is the smallest at 11 inches.
The Tab S8 has tiny uniform bezels on the front around its alleged 11-inch 120 Hz LCD and a flat back and sides, identical to its predecessor. The cutouts for the antenna lines around the rear are identical to those on the Tab S7, as is the magnetic strip for charging the S Pen and the dual 13MP and 5MP cameras.
The power button is reported to contain an actual fingerprint scanner. The significant upgrades should happen beneath the hood, where the new slate is rumored to use the Snapdragon 888 or possibly it’s a replacement, the Snapdragon 899, though there’s still no word on that.
Samsung is likely to unveil the Galaxy Tab S8 series in January or February 2022, with the entry-level 11-inch device costing roughly $840.
Samsung next year line up has been leaked
Samsung has plenty of new devices for its fans in 2022.
Samsung has great expectations for 2022, and it’s not just because of the Galaxy S22 smartphones. We’ve heard a lot of speculations regarding the Galaxy Tab S8 series, and now we have some leaked details on the tablet, as well as information on Samsung’s plans for new wireless headphones, smartwatches, and laptops in 2022.
According to TheElec, Samsung’s wireless business division has reportedly discussed its 2022 business plans with up to thirty major South Korean partners, detailing production schedules and dates.
The information, which was translated and organized in a nice table by leakster FrontTron, exposes four Galaxy Tab S8 variants: a Lite model, a vanilla Tab S8, a Tab S8+, and a Tab S8 Ultra. The premium Tab S8 members are slated to go into production in Q2 2020, while the Lite variant will be released in Q4.
According to the information, Samsung plans to create 1.6 million Tab S8 Lite units and 1.2 million Galaxy Tab S8 units. The Plus and Ultra variants should be produced in smaller numbers, with 900,000 and 400,000 units being produced, respectively.
We may also expect two entry-level tablets, the Tab A8 and Tab A7 Lite, to be released between Q1 and Q4 2022 in far bigger quantities than the premium slates, at 11 million units each.
Samsung intends to build 4.8 million units of the Galaxy Watch5 in Q4 in the smart wearables category. In the Q2-Q3 timeframe, the Galaxy Buds Pro2 and Buds Live2 are also expected. Samsung plans to produce 3.3 million Buds Live2 and 3.1 million Buds Pro2 units.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S8+ runs on Snapdragon 898
A powerful Galaxy Tab is coming your way.
A Vivo phone with the forthcoming Snapdragon 898 performed Geekbench back in September, but the early result was hampered by low clock rates. Now that Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S8+ has had a go, the results are looking better, albeit they may still be a work in progress.
The Samsung SM-X808U completed the run; deciphering the model number, this appears to be the Tab S8+ with 5G for the United States. It has 8 GB of RAM and was running Android 12 at the time (not 12L by the looks of it, but that may be a wrong identification by the benchmark).
The single-core score is 1,211 points, while the multi-core score is 3,193 points. For comparison, the Galaxy S22+ with Exynos 2200 scored 1,073 single-core points and 3,389 multi-core points in a previous test. Both chipsets will be manufactured in the same foundries (Samsung 4nm) and will feature essentially identical CPU configurations – one prime Cortex-X2, three Cortex-A710, and for the A510, one Cortex-A510.
Note that the X2 in the Exynos test was not running at full speed, so these early comparisons aren’t very useful (in that case, as with the Vivo, the issue seems to have been a conservative, power-saving governor). The 898 appears to have been running at the usual speeds, with the prime core clocking in at 3.0 GHz, the mid-cores at 2.5 GHz, and the little cores at 1.8 GHz.
We’ll have to wait a little longer for trustworthy benchmarks to compare the two new Android flagship chips (plus the Dimensity 2000), as well as discuss generational advancements over the Snapdragon 888 and Exynos 2100.
For now, here’s a refresher on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8+’s rumored specifications. It will sport a 12.4″ OLED display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, a Snapdragon 898 processor (an Exynos version is to be announced), 8 GB of RAM, and storage options of 128 GB and 256 GB. A 10,090 mAh battery will power the tablet, which will allow 45W rapid charging. On the back, there will be a 13+5 MP camera, while on the front, there will be an under-display fingerprint reader and quad speakers.
A standard Galaxy Tab S8 and Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra are both in the works. They’ll probably debut in January or February, potentially alongside the Galaxy S22.
