With Unpacked out of the way, we have a little bit of time to talk about things specifically. The realization just hit me, that the Galaxy Tab S8 series, especially the Ultra, is HUGE, compared to the Galaxy Tab S8 and Galaxy Tab S8+.
Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra: The Biggest Galaxy Tab Yet!
Probably one of their most ambitious releases, the Tab S8 Ultra is a huge piece, raking up a monstrous 14.6″ WQXGA+ Super AMOLED panel that goes up to 120Hz. It packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset and comes in variable storage sizes. The Ultra gets the bulk of the good stuff, apart from the display. It houses a 11,200 mAh battery that’s capable of 45W charging.
Unlike the entry Tab S8, the Tab S8 Ultra unlocks via an on-display fingerprint scanner just like the Tab S8+.
At the midpoint, we feel that the Tab S8+ is the true successor to the Tab S7+, considering that the Tab S8 Ultra would be Samsung’s first “Ultra” class tablet. It stands at 12.4″ with the same resolution and refresh rate capabilities as the Ultra. You’ll get a slightly smaller battery here (10,090 mAh vs 11,200 mAh), with the same on-display fingerprint scanner privileges. With what’s been given on paper, the Tab S8+ could be hot seller as it’s truly a midpoint with very little differences other than the display size itself.
The entry flagship is the smallest piece, offering an 11″ WQXGA IPS screen with up to 120Hz of refresh rate. Hardware wise you’ll get the same chipset and configurations with the difference being in the fingerprint scanning. It’s not going to be on-display, but instead would be a side key scanner instead.
